    Sometimes there is no choice. Whether it’s fanatical terrorists, implacable enemies, there are times, in the words of General Stanley McCrystal, when you are dealing with “irreconcilables.” Then, you just have to go in and kill them. That’s when you call upon the elite Special Forces units. Some are world famous - the SAS and the Navy Seals. Others lurk more in the shadows – like India’s Black Cats and Russia’s Alfa Group. But this is deeply high-risk stuff. When a Special Forces Operation goes wrong, there can be many innocent casualties and profound political consequences. Ask Jimmy Carter. A botched raid cost him his presidency. This series will reveal the workings of these elite Black Ops units and tell the inside story of some of the most dramatic events in recent history.

    The Trial

    The impeachment and removal from office of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff in 2016 was triggered by a corruption scandal involving, among others, her then vice-president Michel Temer. Director Maria Augusta Ramos follows the trial against Rousseff from the point of view of her defence team. This is a courtroom drama that unfolds slowly: the appearances of the various parties gradually turn the proceedings into something akin to theatre. Inside the courtroom, grand emotions are played to full effect whilst, on the other side of the doors, lobbyists and supporters pace the corridors. Meanwhile, outside, in front of Brasília’s modernist government buildings, demonstrators are chanting like a Greek chorus. Only the main character, Rousseff herself, remains professional and aloof.
