In this podcast, two families talk about the chaos and terror they experienced at Kabul airport as they tried to flee Afghanistan last summer.
Yusef had travelled to the UK in advance and was in quarantine when the Taliban seized control of the capital.
His wife Sherbano was in shock when she saw them seize the police station and she was forced to leave their home and take their daughter Malalai and teenage nephew to the airport.
Reports of crowd surges and deaths had already spread and she was terrified of what lay ahead.
Malalai, nine, also shares how they struggled to get through and saw Western military and Taliban forces face-to-face at the airport.
Afzal had not believed NATO forces would really withdraw from Afghanistan and was trying to get his passport on the day the capital was seized.
His family were separated in the airport grounds and he shares his desperate struggle to unite with his pregnant wife and three children in the crowds and get them onto a flight before the deadline passed.
