A collection of documentaries by the revered journalist John Pilger.

Released on DVD for the first time, this set brings together another 12 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 and highly respected journalist and author 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 and The Guardian, alongside American and European newspapers.
A passionate and rare critic of foreign military and economic ventures by Western governments, Pilger has been described as a unique presence 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 fear to go.
