Mad Dog: Inside the Secret World of Muammar Gaddafi
Available on Prime Video, iTunes, BBC Select
His oil income was a billion dollars a week, and he used torture and murder to silence the opposition. Is this why Libyan leader Colonel Gaddafi was called a ‘mad dog’ by Ronald Reagan? No other dictator so cannily threatened to turn Western powers to cowed appeasers. This dense, powerful film interviews those he bereaved, the ones who tried to stop him – and the people who assisted his tyranny.
