Fifteen years on and still no apologies from Government
29 April 2007 | by glendinning-1See all my reviews

This well presented 'quasi-documentary' reconstruction from very recent history was aired on BBC2 in their 'graveshift' or late-night schedule - which is indicative of the sensitivity (possibly) of the content. Thanks to a 'whistle-blower' the essential background was provided to this fascinating and disturbing insight of how much 'we' cannot rely on 'the powers that be' to look after the wellbeing of it's citizens. Revealed (no spoiler detail intended) is the 'naked' contradiction given out on the floor of the 'Mother of Parliaments' - as it is know there are "Lies, damned lies ... and . . "

This production is not going to win many acting plaudits - but that isn't to take away from the excellent factual portrayal of the events on the first of August 1990.

Despite all rational assessments those involved relied totally on truthful advice - did they get it? I've kept a copy on DVD to show our kids ... it should be 'out there' as a stand alone DVD - and/if it arrives - grab yourself a copy. You'll perhaps do more international 'news gathering' before you next embark on an overseas flight!
