In The Name of Justice: The Television Reporting of John Pilger
Anthony Hayward presents the compelling story of the international crises tackled by John Pilger in over thirty years of television reporting.

He examines Pilger's prolific and dramatic television documentaries on subjects ranging from war in Vietnam to the aftermath of Pol Pot's Cambodia, repression in the former Czechoslovakia, East Timor and Burma, continuing discrimination against the Aborigines in Australia, US and British punishment of the Iraqi people for the crimes of their dictator, the injustice of 'globalised' poverty and the realities behind social and political issues in Britain.

He also chronicles the effects and controversies of each documentary and contextualises them within TV's other factual output, and discovers how Pilger has defied broadcasting conventions in order to present a truth that is often unpalatable to authority.
