John Pilger: Breaking the Mirror
5,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Recipient of multiple awards – including the UN Media Peace Prize – John Pilger is a world-renowned journalist, author and factual film-maker who began his career in his native Australia before moving to London. He has been a foreign correspondent and frontline war reporter since 1967 and is a regular contributor to a wide range of international broadcast and print media. A passionate critic of foreign military and economic ventures by Western governments, Pilger's work uncovers shocking truths about the political forces that manifest themselves worldwide; leaving no stone unturned, he treads where many journalists fear to go. Originally broadcast in 1997, this film considers the downfall of the newspaper Pilger worked on for 23 years: a popular, intelligent tabloid once read by a quarter of the British population and which genuinely reflected its readers' concerns. Pilger asks why the qualities seen in the Daily Mirror prior to the 1970s are no longer apparent, examining the contraction of the press following the Sun's symbolic move to Wapping, coverage of the Hillsborough disaster, the fate of the Daily Mirror under Robert Maxwell, and the stranglehold of Rupert Murdoch. Released for the first time, Breaking the Mirror is accompanied by a brand-new John Pilger introduction, recorded in 2014.

Utopia
10,49 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Following his hard-hitting documentary The War You Don't See, John Pilger's new film is a rare and powerful insight into a secret Australia and breaks what amounts to a national silence about the indigenous first people - the oldest, most enduring presence on Earth. An epic film in its production, scope and revelations, Utopia reveals that apartheid is deep within Australia's past and present and that Aboriginal people are still living in abject poverty and Third World conditions, with a low life expectancy and disproportionately high rate of deaths in police custody. Starting his career as a journalist in his native Australia before moving to London, John Pilger has been the recipient of multiple awards, including Britain's highest award for journalism, twice, and television academy awards in both the UK and the United States. He has been a foreign correspondent and frontline war reporter, and is a regular contributor to international media, including the ITV Network, the Guardian and the New Statesman. An incisive and rare critic of Western economic and military power, Pilger's humane eyewitness reporting has been described as a unique presence on British television that explores where others dare not go. SPECIAL FEATURES [] More than four hours of additional interviews recorded during the filming of Utopia [] Booklet by Pilger biographer Anthony Hayward [] Original theatrical trailer

Freedom Next Time
19,78 € *

John Pilger is one of the world's pre-eminent investigative journalists and documentary film-makers. His best-selling books of reportage, which include Heroes and Hidden Voices, have in the words of Noam Chomsky 'been a beacon of light in often dark times'.In Freedom Next Time he looks at five countries, in each of which a long struggle for freedom has taken place, in each the people, having shed blood and dreams, are still waiting. In Afghanistan, Iraq and South Africa there has been the promise of hope, and even an 'official' freedom, but the reality of these divided societies is that they are still waiting for real freedom. In Palestine, the cycle of violence continues with no resolution in sight. And the island of Diego Garcia, in the Indian Ocean, is a microcosm of the ruthlessness of great powers. The island was sold by the British to the American military in the 1960s. The indigenous population, descended from slaves, were forcibly removed to the slums of Port Louis in Mauritius. They have continued to fight for the return of their homeland ever since - three years ago the High Court granted them the right of return, but this has subsequently been blocked. The island remains the US's third biggest military base, a base from which they are able to launch attacks against the Middle East.Once again John Pilger gives a voice to the people living through these momentous times and, in gripping detail, shows us the lives behind the headlines.

The War on Truth: Or Everything You Always Want...
36,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The War on Truth investigates all aspects of the lead up to the war in Iraq, its execution, and its aftermath. Neil MacKay contends that the public was systematically fed untruths in a manner that questions what kind of democracy we really have. MacKay, award winning investigative journalist for Scotland's Sunday Herald newspaper has covered the West's intelligence agencies for many years. In this book he questions why 'intelligence' missed 9/11 and why the best funded intelligence networks in history got things so badly wrong. The WMD debate is also covered. MacKay's extensive contacts in the intelligence community make a telling contribution to this investigation and we see an intimate picture of how intelligence is gathered, how it is interpreted and why things go wrong. We also gain an insight to Neo-Cons, the radical think tank that surround George W. Bush and some of whom stated before 9/11, that the US 'needed another Pearl Harbor' to condition the American people (and their allies) into supporting war against Saddam Hussein. Author Neil MacKay is a three-times finalist as British Reporter of tile Year in the British Press Awards, Britain's equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize. MacKay revealed the identity of the Omagh bomber, exposed the British Army colonel who used loyalist terrorists as proxy assassins throughout the 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland and unmasked 'Stakeknife,' the highest-ranking British army spy inside the IRA.His investigations into the war on terror and the invasion of lraq have won international acclaim. More than 200,000 US readers regularly turn to his stories on the internet every Sunday. In 1999, MacKay famously wrote an article based on briefingswith CIA operatives in Pakistan that reported that aI-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden planned to use planes to attack mainland America. He has appeared on TV and radio regularly as a commentator in the UK, France. Italy. Japan. America. Canada, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Germany and throughout the Middle East.John Pilger: 'Neil's masterly and prodigious scoops are the stuff of newspaper legend' Truthout.org: 'the gold standard of investigative journalists' REVIEWS John Pilger: 'Neil's masterly and prodigious scoops are the stuff of newspaper legend' British Press Awards: 'the cool journalist - the guy who's first with the news.'Truthout.org: 'the gold standard of investigative journalists'
