The fact that the young man Jane Felix Browne married was also the son of the world’s most wanted terrorist, and she now has Osama Bin Laden for a father-in-law, made it an incredible tale from the outset.
With world exclusive access “Mr & Mrs Bin Laden” is a one off documentary which takes us on a journey to find out the truth about their relationship – and leads us to a rare insight into what it is to be a ‘Bin Laden’…. the son of a man loathed by the western world.
The Bin Laden family are a fabulously wealthy dynasty, some of whom operate a billion dollar construction conglomerate. The company does business widely with the west and long ago disowned Osama, choosing to lead an intensely private existence.
This is the first time any of the close family has ever given an in-depth interview. And in this intimate and revealing interview, Osama’s fourth son Omar Bin Laden speaks about his feelings for the new Mrs Bin Laden but also candidly discusses the burden of the name and his feelings for his father.
