Malala: Shot for Going to School

One year ago this week, Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban. Now, in this Panorama Special, for the first time in her own words, we hear the remarkable journey of a teenage girl from Pakistan who has now become a global symbol of the fight for girls' education.

Talking exclusively to Mishal Husain, Malala describes how she stood up to the Taliban when they tried to close her school, and remembers the day she was shot on her school bus. She tells Mishal about her battle for recovery in a Birmingham hospital and about her new life in the UK - juggling school in Birmingham with speeches and meetings on the world's stage.

Mishal goes to Pakistan's Swat Valley to visit Malala's old school, and we hear for the first time from her school friends and family about the real Malala.
