Not everyone's cup of tea, but this is a lot of documentaries for a low price.

Description

Released on DVD for the first time and personally chosen by John Pilger, this set brings together twelve of the acclaimed Australian film-maker and journalist's most hard-hitting and inspirational films.

Recipient of multiple awards, including the UN Media Peace Prize, John Pilger is a world-renowned journalist, author and respected factual film-maker, who began his career in his native Australia, before moving to London. Drawing extensively on eye-witness testimony, Pilger has been a foreign correspondent and a front-line war reporter since 1967 and in the UK he is a regular contributor to a wide range of international broadcast and print media including the New Statesman, ITV, The Guardian and American and European newspapers.

A passionate and rare critic of foreign military and economic ventures by Western governments, Pilger has been described as unique on British Television. His work makes uneasy viewing as he uncovers shocking truths about the political forces that manifest themselves worldwide; forces that many turn a blind eye to. Leaving no stone unturned he treads where many journalists fear to go.

Pilger - the man who worships himself as a God.
He's his own biggest fan, no doubt.

Excellent documentaries. Same it's from the Hut group or I'd buy it.

What's the problem with the Hut group?

These are brilliant documentaries from a film maker who isn't afraid to tell the truth.
Give the bloke some credit PhilK,he's shown us things that no other journalist has had the guts to.

Covered the East Timor genocide when the rest of the media ignored it. Also had good coverage of Cambodia during "year zero".

Arrogant or not, Pilger is a journalist above many others.
