Dirty War
 "is a 2004 BBC, in association with HBO Filmsmade-for-TV movie thriller/drama about a terrorist attack on Central London,
written by Lizzie Mickery and Daniel Percival...
The film opens with a June 2003 quote from E. Manningham Bullerdirector general (DG) of MI5: "It will only be a matter of time before a crude chemical, biological or radiological (CBRN) attack is launched on a major western city" and provides the basic premise for the film.
The film follows the journey of radioactive material, hidden in vegetable oil containers, from Habiller, Turkey (~210 km west of Istanbul)
through Sofia, Bulgaria, to Deptford, to an East End Indian food takeawayrestaurant, and to a rented house in Willesden,
where it assembled into a dirty bomb...
The film is considered an accurate portrayal of a potential radiological terrorist attack with subsequent emergency response.
As such, the film has been used to train first-responders in the US who may be called upon to respond to similar incidents."
