Right now HBO and BBC have joined forces to bring the world a documentary on last year’s shocking US Capitol riots.

As reported by NME, the doco is set to be titled, Four Hours At The Capitol and is being directed by Jamie Roberts of The Rise Of The Murdoch Dynasty and executive produced by Leaving Neverland director Dan Reed.

The documentary has been described as  “tightly focused and comprehensive” and “unfolds with urgent precision”, utilising new footage from the events that unfolded following former US president, Donald Trump’s historic “fight like hell” speech.

The riot which went down on January 6th saw Trump supports storm the Capitol, leaving five people dead and ultimately led to the impeachment of Trump and the Congressional investigation. He was also banned from social media.

There is a seriously impressive lineup of interviewees on the bill. Journalists and Capitol staffers featured and more. See below:

Reps. Jim McGovern, Eric Swalwell, Ruben Gallego, Buddy Carter and Rosa DeLauro, Sens. Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin, D.C Metropolitan police officers Mike Fanone, Jimmy Albright and Daniel Hodges, Commanders Ramey Kyle and Robert Glover and Capitol police officers Winston Pingeon, Byron Evans and Keith Robishaw and protestors/rioters Couy Griffin, Dominic Box, Nick Alvear, Eddie Block and Bobbie Picklessit.
