The Vietnam War, in particular, seemed to pull together certain unhappy truths about post-war US foreign policy. For many covered in the layers of state patriotism the reality of how their government actually behaved came as a shock. Vietnam is often identified as a turning point for the way wars are covered.

The American general in charge of press liaison told me after the war that it was extraordinary how many media people came to him seeking guidelines. He admits that he often had trouble getting his films on air, but none of them ended up on the shelf. As the years progressed, Pilger did manage to antagonise significant parts of the commentariat.
A recently unearthed recording finds him squaring up to a young, already supremely confident Martin Amis.
