The cast of people speaking, the story itself. This is all goosebumps for me.

Fascinating listen.
Breadman'84 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/23/21
Amazing podcast, fascinating story told in way that you can follow and even look into the wider politics of the time later on. I have listened to this a few times and each time I am glued.

Over the top there is no mystery it does not matter who was responsible because at the time the whole country was getting blown to bits by terrorist it’s was extremely naive of her to return to Pakistan to take charge where she had already failed the people 2 times in a county which is so corrupt...Read full review »

Very important story to preserve for history and document fully. I’m listening in 2021, and have no concern that it was released in 2018 and thankful that I found it. The assassination was unconscionable and should be solved and prosecuted fully. Nevertheless, I do believe that Bhutto and her...Read full review »

Such an important story told in such detail. I’ve listened to this twice and loved it each time. Very interesting with lots of context, detail and integrity.

Incredible Background behind the assassination attempts Could never understand why the USA gave $Ms every year.
Ukmichael via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/05/20
Excellent investigation and a very sad story of a courageous woman who died too soon. Thank you for taking the time to tell her story. Excellent production. Thank you
acooton via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/25/20
Only 3 episodes in, but this is brilliant. The quality of the research is exceptional and the story is both fascinating and exceptionally important.
Bippsmeister via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/02/20
A great podcast, not least because what was a very complex political situation was made easy to follow in this series. Great work all round.
Chevyiam via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/15/20
The meticulous investigation explains the political instability in a country of 200 people, which they are doomed in poverty.
Arg11119 via Apple Podcasts · Greece · 09/21/20
Another woman killed . I guess it’s even more common place in countries where civil rights for all are sketchy .Terrifying to be born into a country that has a fledgling actual ‘justice’ system. Good the podcast will reach teach more people how a lot of non western countries work around politics...Read full review »

Very interesting and excitingly told.
Don't play much via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/12/20
A profound, shocking, thought-provoking and revealing series that is both well researched and well produced.
Uneebb via Apple Podcasts · Pakistan · 07/24/20
This podcast was really interesting and sad. I learnt so much from this and would recommend it to teens and adults. The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars was because I was slightly confused about the outcome. Still, it was still good.
I.R.M.P via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/07/20
It’s very good, informative and moving. Highly recommended. There’s a little bit too much of the presenter and his activities. But listen and learn.
RogerC8 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/26/20
My words won’t do justice to describe how amazingly owen benett Jones has conducted this investigation. His podcast literally grabbed my attention and gave me goosebumps whenever i heard the new episodes. I’m highly grateful to the entire team particularly Owen and bbc world for bringing up this...Read full review »

Owen Bennet Jones please provide us with more of your phenomenal work
Shelle_My_Belle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/28/20
Fantastic, deep, journalism. One of my favourites.
Andy.Gomez via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 01/26/20
I’m new to non sports podcasts, in fact this is my first non sports podcast I’ve listened to. It was so engaging and loved how live interviews and real sound was incorporated. This kept it interesting, the length was right to, not too overwhelming.
Cjberns via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/17/20
Engaging reporting! One or the best! Thanks for research
lesteradomolotov via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 01/03/20
Really good, very much enjoyed
fred 4000563 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/04/19
The sort of informative, exceptionally well researched journalism the public require to educate and reflect on. Thank you to Mr B-J for an outstanding podcast.
NatsPoddie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/02/19
An enthralling tale. But really, a request to review before the first episode and perhaps after the last, would be more than sufficient. Having just listened to a fairly graphic description of Benazir Bhutto's death, it seemed singularly inappropriate to be jerked back from Rwalpindi by the...Read full review »

Excellent podcast. Extremely well researched and well balanced podcast. It’s like a real life Murder mystery.
Binder Singh Sings Again via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/14/19
The research was captivating, every week I could look forward to another deep investigation that would take you to some sort of fantasy work. While it’s a real story it make you want to think about how it could happen and not be solved.
14Edits via Apple Podcasts · Jamaica · 10/09/19
In-depth and well narrated. Appreciated the author responding to critics regarding romanticism of BB. Murder was her redemption...and that is such a profound thing for family and friends to process. Thank you!
Tiny Tina tuna via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/19
This podcast series will please any current affairs geek with a particular interest in human psychology and the instruments of power, binged it in a day.
KirstieWielandt via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/06/19
I was born in 92 and I was born in Pakistan. Bilal was born in 92 as well. I was 15 and saw the news of Bhutto assassination on TV and Bilal was 15 but instead of watching it on TV like the rest of 15 years old he was the one who carried out that brutal act. This podcast got me hooked. I saw it...Read full review »

How prescient was Benazir when she advised the USA against funding jihadi fighters in Afghanistan against the soviets. We now have taliban and al Qaddafi
DocNyr via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/28/19
Thank you Owen Bennett-Jones and the BBC. What an incredibly in-depth listen on this tragic event.
Scott515 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/19/19
We have a sound scape through Pakistan’s history, really well told in an honest and riveting way. Well done!
CharlieS.23 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 09/01/19
Finally listened to the whole series...well done Owen, compulsive listening and great insight to such a complex subject.

Burfthesurf via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/20/19
A very interesting podcast. Don’t hesitate to listen to it.
ydhcfogi13 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/28/19
Host feels a bit self involved continuously talking about his own connections and self in relation to the story.
Lorennalolo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 07/15/19
A very well produced and clearly explained insight into the history of Pakistani politics
