Having seen off the US, Nato and their Afghan allies, the Taliban are once more in control of Kabul and most of Afghanistan. It's an extraordinary resurgence for a group whose origins go back to the Cold War struggles and proxy wars of the 1970s and 1980s. With rare interviews and archive, Yalda Hakim examines the rise of the Taliban after the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan and the formation of the CIA- and Pakistani-backed Mujahideen.
