On the 60th anniversary of the founding of
ITV, Britain's and Europe's biggest commercial broadcaster, John
Pilger's groundbreaking film, 'Year Zero: the Silent Death of
Cambodia', has been named as one of the network's 60 top programmes.
'Cambodia Year Zero', as it became known, was credited with alerting
the world to the suffering of the people of Cambodia under the
fanatical regime of Pol Pot. It raised tens of millions of pounds
for Cambodia's children - mostly unsolicited - and became the most
watched documentary throughout the world.
