Part 1Premieres on Jan 28, 2018
Followers from around the world travel to Mount Carmel to hear the preaching of David Koresh, a local Texas working-class kid turned prophet of God and leader of the religious group The Branch Davidians. But as Koresh’s teachings become more and more apocalyptic, members of the group question his motives. Matters come to a head when the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, believing the group is stockpiling weapons, decides to raid the compound.
Few had ever heard of the Branch Davidians and their leader David Koresh until the events of February 28, 1993 when a raid by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms on their center close to Waco, Texas, left four agents and six of the religious sect dead. Who was David Koresh and why were many Branch Davidians prepared to die for him? Was he a con man or an anointed messenger of God sent to warn his followers of the imminent end of the world? With Koresh's own voice taken from many previously never-before-seen FBI negotiation tapes, nine Branch Davidians will now tell their emotional story from the inside.
