London will be hit with a radiological "dirty bomb" on Jan. 24, when HBO premieres the docu-drama "Dirty War."

The film, a BBC production, focuses on the experiences of a fireman, two anti-terrorist squad police officers and a group of international terrorists in the days leading up to and the immediate aftermath of a terrorist attack on central London.

Writer-director Daniel Percival based the project on extensive research in the United Kingdom's official emergency plans to prevent or deal with such an attack.

"While the film presents a scenario of a terrorist attack on London that could potentially happen, the focus of this film is the reaction to it - particularly by the emergency services and government agencies - and the characters caught up in the unfolding drama," says Percival. "'Dirty War' blends drama and documentary techniques to offer a very human and realistic insight into a fictional scenario."
