A historic report filmed as Libya celebrated 25 years of Qadhafi's rule.

The UN has stopped all flights in and out of Libya and, during a seven hour wait to board the ferry to Malta, tempers flare. Despite these hardships Libya prospers. A Libyan official speaks frankly about his leader and admits mistakes have been made. He expresses regret for Libya's backing of the IRA and says it was revenge for Britain's part in the 1986 raid on Tripoli. We visit Qadhafi's bombed house - an eerie shrine to his daughter who died in that attack. Human rights abuses are detailed by a former university lecturer in Libya. He talks of lynchings in the university grounds. This film challenges the West's view of Libya and looks at Qadhafi's struggles both at home and abroad.
