Bali 2002 | Preview (ITV1)

An inspiring and emotional four-part drama that explores how everyday heroes from Bali, Australia and beyond defied the odds to bring order from chaos and hope from despair during the 2002 Bali bombings.

The series is the first time the full story has been told and was developed in consultation with those directly impacted by the tragedy.

On the 12th of October, 2002, the island paradise of Bali was shattered by a terrorist attack on two of Kuta Beach’s busiest nightclubs - both the local Balinese and international tourists scrambled to escape, to rescue the injured and to comfort the dying.

Australian and Indonesian authorities not only mobilised to evacuate survivors and identify victims, but to hunt down those responsible. Amidst this chaos, heroes arose to defy the odds from the most unlikely places and cultures united in the search for healing, justice and meaning.

Featuring a stellar cast led by AACTA Award-winner Rachel Griffiths (Total Control, The Wilds), Richard Roxburgh (Catherine The Great, The Crown), Claudia Jessie (Bridgerton), Sean Keenan (Glitch, Wake In Fright), Ewen Leslie (Pieces Of Her, The Luminaries) and Arka Das (Top Of The Lake, Lion).

Bali 2002 begins Saturday 9th September on ITV1, with the series available now on ITVX.
