BBC One tonight: 7/7: The Day The Bombs Came

Less than a minute later, Germaine Lindsey detonated his explosive laden rucksack close to where Gill had been standing.

The whole environment changed and suddenly it felt like I was falling in black thick liquid or tar and my immediate sensation or thought was that I was having a heart attack and that I was dying in the Tube. (

If you don't mind reliving the nightmare some Londoners had to go through last summer, 7/7: The Day The Bombs Came will be broadcasted tonight, 9pm on BBC One. The documentary will use recollections by members of the emergency services who helped the victims, as well as news clips, CCTV footages and taped phone calls used by emergency services.

This would be followed by 7/7: Citizen Journalists, on how the victims of the London bombing became 'citizen journalists' and how they changed the way news were played on the media. That would be on BBC Three from 10:35pm.

One of the most poignant events of 7 July is the BBC Radio London mid-morning phone-in. It started off as a discussion of the Olympic Games venue decision and turned into a morbidly fascinating chronicle of the bomb attacks.
