Examines the question of journalistic integrity and independence in war reporting. Having learnt from the disastrous effects of media coverage of the Vietnam War in the Sixties and Seventies, Western armed alliances nowadays seek to carefully manage media coverage of military operations.

NATO atrocities against Kosovan civilians are considered with regard to NATO's efforts to conceal the truth from 'their' journalists, and the principle of journalistic freedom in war reporting is considered more broadly. Studio guests: Robert Fisk, widely-travelled British foreign correspondent ; Stephen Badsey, Senior Lecturer in the Department of War Studies, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst ; and Philip Taylor, Director of the Institute of Communication Studies, Leeds University
