BBC Documentary: Amar Alone in the World

Airs Sunday, June 30, 2019, at 6 p.m. After a bombing in Iraq, an "orphaned" Amar is taken to the U.K. His mother Zahra survives, and her search begins. One day, clutching a picture of her missing boy, she interrupts a live TV report to share her story, which generates appeals on social media and a message to Amar, who is living alone, unemployed, in South West England. BBC News Correspondent Jon Kay joins Zahra and Amar as they search for the truth – and discover if they are really the missing mother/son they've each yearned for over three decades.
