Bali 2002 airs a new episode tonight Thursday 16 March 2023 on ITVX.

UK Premiere The four-part drama Bali 2002 chronicles the heroic efforts of ordinary people from Bali, Australia, and throughout the world who beat the odds to restore calm after the terrorist attacks that rocked the Indonesian resort city in 2002. The series was created in collaboration with people who were personally affected by the catastrophe, and it is the first time the complete tale has been told.

Two of Kuta Beach’s most popular nightclubs were targeted by terrorists on October 12, 2002, shattering the idyllic image of Bali. Balinese locals and visitors from all over the world scurried to safety, while many foreigners helped the injured and the dying. Authorities in Australia and Indonesia joined forces to not only rescue those still alive and identify the dead, but also track down the perpetrators.

In the middle of the anarchy, however, heroes emerged from unlikeliest of places to defy the odds, and people from all walks of life came together in their shared pursuit of health, justice, and purpose.

The film boasts an all-star cast including AACTA winner Rachel Griffiths, Richard Roxburgh, Claudia Jessie, Sean Keenan, Ewen Leslie, and Arka Das.
