Re: request re: pilger



Just to add to Anthony's input, 

As far as I know Pilger covered the Veitnam war. He
also wrote a book under the title "Last Day In Saigon"
back in 1972. 
Other well known documentaries were: The Killing
Fields (Pol Pot regime in Kambodia) and a further
documentary on the Australian Aboriginies (title
escapes my memory at the moment). A couple of years
ago he made a documentary about the origins of
Australians in which he traced his own ancestries. 

John appeared in many TV/Radio discussions in the UK
during the Gulf War, were he took a stance against the
war. 

I hope this helps.
