Spawning the years from 1998 until the chaotic aftermath of the American led invasion in 2003, RTE reporter Richard Downes has witnessed first hand the incredible changes that have occurred in Iraq.

Not only is "Iraq - A Personal Journey" an account of a nation's suffering as it moved from dictatorship to foreign occupation and guerrilla warfare, it also focuses on the people of Iraq and their customs: religious and cultural; and their historical diversity.

We find Abu Aseel Abbas, Shia Muslim and media fixer extraordinaire; David George, Christian student and man about town; Mohammed Darwish, Sunni Muslim academic and Joyce scholar; Ra'ad Baqim, camera man and former militia member, as well as members of the new occupying power - Corporal Wayne Wylie, U.S. soldier patrolling the streets of Baghdad and Captain St. John Pryce, upper class British officer at Sea in Basrah.

"Iraq - A Personal Journey" goes beyond the daily distilled news reports seen by the Western World. Its unflinching focus on the humanity of all those involved reveals the true horror and impact of the war, as well as the friendships that can blossom in a country torn to shreds.
