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.

Stealing A Nation
Posted by Mark on 21st May 2012
John Pilger is definitely one of the best documentary film-makers of our time. The films in this boxset are fantastic. In particular I have to recommend the "Stealing a Nation" film about the Chagos Islands. It is really a shocking and untold story about how the British and the US colluded to literally expel the entire population of a country in order to place a military base there. And despite court rulings they have refused to let those people return!!
The documentary on the mutiny among US soldiers in Vietnam and 'Inside Burma' are both veru disturbing.
Really can't recommend this enough for people who don't buy the right-wing Fox/BBC/CNN bullshit.
