The Report examines the true, unknown story of the British government’s cover-up of the deadliest civilian tragedy of World War II. On March 3, 1943, 173 people died in London’s Bethnal Green tube station, which served as a bomb shelter during air raids. But not a single bomb was dropped that fateful night. The cause of this disaster was kept secret for almost thirty years, until a young BBC journalist making a documentary began to uncover what actually took place. As the truth is revealed, we discover how trauma, fear, and the paranoia of war impact our very humanity, and how the specter of a single public calamity resonates throughout multiple generations.
