Synopsis:
This is the first definitive collection of ground-breaking documentaries from John Pilger's career as a world renowned film-maker, author and investigative journalist. The title, 'Heroes', is taken from one of his films and his seminal book (1986), which celebrates the struggles and heroism of ordinary people all over the world. Beginning 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 front-line war reporter, and is a regular coritributor 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. This set brings together almost four decades of landmark journalism, including, for the first time, 'The Outsider's, Pilger's Channel 4 series of interviews, along with the award-winning cinema film 'The War on Democracy' and an updated edition of Anthony Hayward's filmogrhy of Pilger's work.
