Radovan Karadzic: five films
Updated on 17 October 2009
From a 1993 interview with Jon Snow, through the Srebrenica massacre, to his arrest this week, Channel 4 News has followed Radovan Karadzic over the last 16 years.
January 1993: Jon Snow interviews Radovan Karadzic
Jon Snow interviews the Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic after reports that Muslim women are being systematically raped by Serbian forces.
"In this war there happened many terrible things on all sides, but it is out of the question that it was part of any strategy, or it is out of the question that it was done by knowledge of army officers or civilian authorities," Karadzic says.
"I know that some criminals are testifying in Muslim prisons against Serbs and that is something that is not true."
July 1995: the fall of Srebrenica
Bosnian Serb troops defy NATO airstrikes and overwhelm the safe haven of Srebrenica.
The town fell just two hours after NATO jets launched strikes against Bosnian Serb tanks. Thousands of refugees fled the area.
Gaby Rado reports on the fall of Srebrenica and what it means for the future of UN operations in Bosnia.
October 1995: Srebrenica - a survivor's story
Channel 4 News talks to a survivor of the massacre of Muslim men after the fall of Srebrenica.
Hurem Suljic describes being transported on busses by Bosnian Serbs. "I noticed that they were taking a man out - an older man and then I saw there were three of four of them standing on one side and three or four standing on the other."
"And so I stood at the door. I wanted to see what was going to happen to him. When he reached them, the one on the left had an iron rod. He hit them man on the back of the head and he fell.
"And another on the right hand side was standing there and with an axe he hit him across the spine. With the sharp edge. And so the axe sunk unto him and was left in him."
January 1996: Srebrenica - mass graves found
NATO reveals that as many as 300 mass graves, some of them over a mile long, could be found in Bosnia.
The NATO commander said the scale of the atrocities made it impossible for the implementation force to guard all suspected grave sites.
Channel 4 News is the first television programme to gain extensive access to the grave sites.
July 2005: Srebrenica 10 years on
Alex Thomson looks back on 10 years since the massacre of Srebrenica when 8,000 Muslims were murdered.
Srebrenica became the worst massacre in Europe since the end of the Second World War.
But a decade after the fall of what was supposed to be the UN safe haven, the vast majority of the thousands of people who died remain unidentified.
