Here is the link to the film trip we discussed in class, for those who wanted to look. I've pasted the summary of it below:

"Following his award-winning documentary The War on Democracy, John Pilger’s new film is a powerful and timely investigation into the media’s role in war. The War You Don’t See traces the history of ‘embedded’ and independent reporting from the carnage of World War I to the destruction of Hiroshima, and from the invasion of Vietnam to the current war in Afghanistan. As weapons and propaganda are ever more sophisticated, the very nature of war has developed into an ‘electronic battlefield.’ But who is the real enemy today? Curzon Cinemas are proud to welcome John Pilger in Q&A after the film."

Very interested in going. Wish it would be before Nov 11 though - or maybe Richard would like to extend the deadline to, lets say roughly 15 Dec?

 The deadline remains as it was, I'm afraid.

For those who haven't noticed it - John Pilger's film is being broadcast on ITV this Tuesday (14th) at 10.35pm. John Pilger discussed embedding on R4 on Friday too.

John Pilger, The War You Don't see.
