Children of Waco

About the Show

During the course of the bloody 51-day siege between the Branch Davidians and the US government in February 1993, the children would become pawns. Some were released after painful negotiations, but others were kept within the Branch Davidian compound until the disastrous final confrontation that killed at least 74 people, including 27 children. With rarely seen footage and exclusive interviews with several survivors, this programme explores the cult and the disastrous siege through the eyes of its most innocent victims: the children.
