Dr Christopher Philips, Syria: The World’s War
4 May 2018
Dr Christopher Philips was historical consultant for the BBC’s new two-part series, ‘Syria: The World’s War’. Journalist Lyse Doucet tells the story of one of the biggest humanitarian crises of our age, the Syrian civil war - seven years of brutal conflict, surpassing the length of World War II. Doucet, who has reported on the conflict from the start, explores how peaceful protest for change spiralled into unspeakable savagery - half a million people killed, millions of lives shattered and so much of Syria in utter ruins.
