The War You Don't See - John Pilger

The War You Don't See - John Pilger

John Pilger, himself a renowned war reporter, questions the role of the media in war. The War You Don’t See asks whether mainstream news has become an integral part of war-making.

Focusing on the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, John Pilger reflects on the history of the relationship between the media and government in times of conflict stretching back to World War I and explores the impact on the information fed to the public of the modern day practice of public relations in the guise of ’embedding’ journalists with the military.

The War You Don’t See has its première at the Barbican, London on 7 December 2010 and at the Curzon Soho, London on 12 December 2010 and selected cinemas on 13 December 2010. It will go to air on ITV1 on 14 December 2010 at 10-35pm. Note the late showing on ITV. Crap on at peak times, good stuff always on late.
