FRONTLINE World on PBS will air a 21-minute segment about journalists covering Iraq titled “Iraq: Reporting the War” on Tuesday, January 11th at 9pm. (check local listings)
The segment, reported and filmmed by Nick Hughes and produced by Marcela Gaviria, follows correspondents John Burns and Dexter Filkins of the New York Times, Rory McCarthy of the Guardian (London), Alastair MacDonald of Reuters, Jackie Spinner of the Washington Post and Getty photographer Scott Peterson as they struggle to cover an increasingly dangerous post-war Iraq. The piece also features a number of dedicated Iraqi stringers, translators and colleagues who make much of the reporting possible due to the increasing level of violence aimed at foreign correspondents.
It is a well reported, well produced film. For viewer outside the United States, it can be seen online at: www.frontline.org/world
