A BBC spokeswoman said of 7/7 Bombings: Conspiracy Road Trip: 'The series takes conspiracy theorists on a journey to fully explore the facts and challenge their beliefs.'
It also features conspiracy theorists - including model Layla Randle-Conde - playing the parts of the bombers in a reconstruction of events.
Between 8.50am and 9.47am on July 7 2005, four British Muslims - Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, Shehzad Tanweer, 22, Jermaine Lindsay, 19, and Hasib Hussain, 18 - blew themselves up using home-made explosives, killing 56 (including themselves) and injuring 700 on three Tube trains and a double-decker bus.
...there have since been a wave of conspiracy theories around the attacks.
One of the more popular accuses then Prime Minister Tony Blair, the Government, the police, and the British and Israeli Secret Services of murdering the innocent people to stir up anti-Islamic fervour and create public support for the 'war on terror' and looming war in Iraq.
It also alleges that the four British Muslims were tricked by the authorities into taking part in what they were told would be a mock anti-terror training exercise.
What they weren't told, it is claimed, was that the Government was going to blow them up, along with other passengers, then pretend the four were suicide bombers.
Theorists have also accused government agents of setting off pre-planted explosives under the three Tube trains and on the bus.

I'm even going to be so bold as to suggest they were on a 'training' exercise, being guided by an unknown source as part of a top secret training / observational exercise in which they would possibly play the part of monitored people and thus had to wear the rucksacks and be monitored on the underground. Unbeknownst to them, they wouldn't be receiving any kind of payment as they would die in the blasts.

I was asked to appear on that show! It was unpayed though, and it meant two weeks off work so I turned them down.
Also I felt pretty certain that the show would end up backing up the official story.
Can't wait to see the show now.
"Just because its disgusting and in bad taste doesn't necessarily make it untrue."
"Any normal thinking person would think what a load of rubbish. But then you take a step back and look at what our past and present governments have done to us, then you think anything is possible."
"I don`t think we would be suprised at ANYTHING Blair did!!"
"Good for the BBC for having the courage. I fell hook line & sinker for the 'official' story at the time as I'm not remotely interested in conspiracy theories. But then I saw close up photos of the blasted floor of the tubes blown upwards & realised that bombs had been placed *under* the tube. I followed it up with more research & realised the whole thing does not hang together. There has not even been an proper enquiry."
"There's a conspiracy theory behind every terrorist attack that happens in the Western world. The worrying thing is; they actually make sense."

There have been many more cases such as above, where MI5 has stopped plots before they can be carried out.
