"The House of Saddam" was a four-part, 2008 mini-series put together by HBO and the BBC. Part I starts with the beginning of the 2003 invasion, and then flashes back to 1979 when Saddam Hussein came to power by pushing out President Ahmad Hassan al-Bakr. Saddam then initiated a bloody purge and began the Iran-Iraq War. At the same time the Dawa Party was carrying out terrorist attacks within the country, and failed at an assassination attempt, which resulted in the destruction of the town of Dujail. The first episode finishes with the internal power struggle within the regime, as Saddam played off one faction against another, and ended up marrying off his eldest daughter Raghad Hussein to Hussein Kamal, who would eventually become Saddam's number two.
