MUMBAI: 22 July 2011, a day now indelibly ingrained in Norway's history, is the date Anders Behring Breivik killed eight people by setting off a bomb outside government headquarters in Oslo. He also embarked on a 90-minute shooting spree, resulting in the death of 69 teenagers on Utoya Island.

In a programme commissioned by Discovery Networks International and set to air this month across the Asia Pacific, US, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America, Discovery Channel chronicles the events of that horrid day - and the impact it has on a nation - in Norway Massacre: The Killer's Mind.



The hour-long special will premiere on Discovery Channel in the US on 8 August.

Breivik calls his actions "atrocious but necessary", but exactly who is this man, and what led him to act? Through psychological analysis, the special examines the mind and the motives of the self-confessed assassin who is responsible for these heinous killings. This programme provides new insight into Breivik's motives by some of the world's leading experts on criminal psychology, including Professor David Wilson and Johns Hopkins University's Katherine Newman, analysing his likely psychological journey during that day and asking just what drove him to orchestrate and carry out a plan of carnage.



Weaving together the moments leading up to this tragedy, the documentary also charts the hour-by-hour events from the time of the bomb set off in Oslo to the cold-blooded shooting of defenseless young people on the idyllic island of Utoya. In addition, the special will provide first-hand accounts from eyewitnesses and survivors who personally suffered the tragedy.
