John Pilger: The War You Don’t See

Bookmark and Share

UPDATE #2: The War You Don’t See is now on YouTube…

UPDATE #1: UK readers can watch The War You Don’t See on the ITV website.

The documentary is a powerful indictment of the media’s failure over Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel/Palestine and other conflicts. Some, including Rageh Omaar (then-BBC, now-AJE), admit to as much.


The documentary is playing at the Regal Picturehouse in Henley and other venues around the country – we can not recommend this film highly enough!

Here’s the section on Palestine, Israeli propaganda and the Gaza Flotilla (includes interviews with Greg Philo):

John Pilger‘s new documentary, The War You Don’t See, will be shown on ITV this evening, Tuesday December 14th, 2010 at 10.35pm.

This powerful film exposes the media’s complicity in war. Featuring interviews with  senior figures at major UK and US broadcasters and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (before his arrest). From ITV Press Office:

In this new documentary John Pilger, the winner of journalism’s top awards for both press and broadcasting, including academy awards in the UK and US, questions the role of the media in war. In The War You Don’t See, Pilger, himself a renowned correspondent, asks whether mainstream news has become an integral part of war-making.

Focusing on the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, 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.

Featuring interviews with senior figures at major UK broadcasters, the BBC and ITV, and high profile journalists on both sides of the Atlantic, including Rageh Omaar and Dan Rather, the film investigates the reporting of government claims that Iraq harboured weapons of mass destruction.
