The London riots of summer 2011 rocked the UK to its core, scenes like this had not been seen on the streets of the UK for many a year. 

From tweets by taxi drivers, to moment-by-moment accounts by riot police, The Riots builds a real-time picture of the riots as they unfolded. And then, from interviews with politicians, police, teachers, lawyers, community leaders, as well as victims and on-lookers, The Riots analyses what happened and why it happened.

Astonishing stories and equally astonishing conclusions told by the many voices that have been stirred up by the riots.

A bold panorama of civil disaffection… There is a density of detail that is compelling… both an enthralling discussion and a powerful reminder of the anger boiling up in society today. –  Arts Desk
