Bahrain: Divided nation, disputed narratives
As questions remain over what really happened during the recent uprising, we ask whether the country will come together.

It seems the commission of inquiry - established to investigate the recent uprising and government crackdown in Bahrain, is in trouble already.

There are reports that several members have resigned, just days after the enquiry chairman was accused of siding with the government.

That news comes amid continuing controversy over Al Jazeera's documentary "Bahrain, Shouting in the Dark", which has been condemned by Bahrain's government.

In this show we ask: What happened in Bahrain? And can the country come together?

Inside Story, with presenter Teymoor Nabili, discusses with Jamal Fakhro, the first deputy chairman of the Shura Council or the upper chamber of Bahrain's parliament; and Christopher Davidson, a lecturer in Middle East Politics at Durham University.

This episode of Inside Story aired on Thursday, August 11, 2011.
