From New York to Jerusalem, hear from the men and women who risk their lives to defuse deadly devices.
Before the call comes in, the clock is already ticking. And every passing moment brings the brave souls of these elite units closer to death.
INSIDE STORY: BOMB SQUAD goes on the job with the men and women who risk their lives to defuse devices designed to kill indiscriminately. We start in New York City, where the police field countless calls of suspicious packages on subways and buses, and we'll hear from squad members who responded to the World Trade Center tragedy. Next, a trip to Israel shows what life is like at the front lines of an age-old conflict, where squad members have had to refine their skills in the face of the threat posed by suicide bombers. But another hot spot has a different dynamic, as we see when we visit with the members of the Royal Ulster Constabulary who work in the divided city of Belfast.
Going on the job with the veterans who take "the long walk" up to a live bomb, this is an extraordinary look at one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
