Al-Jazeera English has made it's 2011 documentary "Bahrain: Shouting in the dark" freely available. We invite you to watch and share it.

"Bahrain: An island kingdom in the Arabian Gulf where the Shia Muslim majority are ruled by a family from the Sunni minority. Where people fighting for democratic rights broke the barriers of fear, only to find themselves alone and crushed.

This is their story and Al Jazeera is their witness - the only TV journalists who remained to follow their journey of hope to the carnage that followed. 

This is the Arab revolution that was abandoned by the Arabs, forsaken by the West and forgotten by the world.

Editor's note: This documentary recently won the Foreign Press Association Documentary of the Year award in London."
