House of Saddam

★ BAFTA Nominated: Best Drama Serial
4 x 60', 2008 BBC Productions for BBC1 Producer Steve Lightfoot Director Alex Holmes Writer Alex Holmes Starring Shohreh Aghdashloo, Philip Arditti, Mounir Margoum & Igor Naor

Steve Lightfoot produced this ambitious, feted mini series co-financed by BBC and HBO which was cast and filmed on location in north Africa.

Beginning in 1979 with the coup that led to Saddam Hussein's accession to power and ending with his execution after the invasion of Iraq in 2003, this mini-series told the extraordinary story of Saddam's dictatorship by emphasizing the domestic machinations at the heart of his regime as much as the geo-politics.
