On YouTube: Guantánamo Guard and Ex-Prisoners Meet (via the BBC)

On January 11 and 12, 2010 the BBC’s Newsnight ran "Tales From Guantanamo", a two-part feature on America's Guantánamo Prison.

BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) took former guard Brandon Neely over from the United States to UK to meet — and apologize to — former prisoners Shafiq Rasul and Ruhal Ahmed, two of “The Tipton Three,” from the West Midlands, who were freed in March 2004 and whose story was later featured in “The Road to Guantánamo”.

The two parts of Newsnight’s feature are available on the BBC website here and here,AND the blogger Rick B announced on his site Ten Percent that he has made the part in which the men meet available as a two-part video on YouTube. These parts were posted on Andy Worthington's Blog and are posted below:
