A ‘brief’ look as some of the points in the programme.
1) 7:33 “It was a political move designed to put pressure on Israel and the International community”
“Political move” aside – this makes it sound like Israel + the International Community are on the same side against the activists.
It’s tricky of the BBC to word it this way.
2) and at 4:14 – Anyone notice the background music – Fast Drumbeat and horns beeping? This makes it sound like a large, vibrant and bustling metropolis. Put that together with the brightly coloured products on the sidewalk and you’re half way home in thinking that everything is normal in Gaza.

I’ve added closed captions if you can’t understand my Liverpool accent. Sorry about the low volume – that’s windows movie-maker and vista for you!
