City of Ghosts (Four Corners)


For four long years Islamic State ruled its "caliphate" from its capital, the city of Raqqa. IS propaganda painted it as a pure paradise and extremists travelled from around the globe to join the terror group. From the outside, there were only glimpses of what life was really like. Now the city is giving up its secrets. Reporter Matt Brown goes on an intense journey into the city freed from Islamic State dictatorship. Emerging from the rubble, the survivors talk about the risks they took to defy Islamic State.
