On March 15th 2019, 51 people were killed and 40 more injured as they attended Friday prayers in a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand. The Christchurch Terror Attacks were named as “one of our darkest days” by New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Arden. This six-part investigative podcast explores that day, and the aftermath, through interviews with the victims and their families. They want the world to remember the people who lost their lives, rather than the man who took them. As well as focussing on themes of racism, radicalisation and islamophobia, the podcast also explores aspects such as the unseen repercussions of immigration and the role of faith in coping with such events. When reports suggest that COVID-19 lockdowns have led to an increase in the volume of online extremism and hatred, this podcast seems even more important.
