Michael Nicholson, ITN's most prolific war reporter, considers the fears and ethical dilemmas that confront the war correspondent daily; Martha Gellhorn, the first American woman war reporter, speaks of the need to "keep a record"; Robert Fisk recalls the discredit that the coverage of World War I brought to the journalism profession, and stresses the need to "stay in the front line in Beirut"; Tim Page, photographer extraordinaire and war junkie turned pacifist, speaks of the trauma of Vietnam; Nick Downie, cameraman/reporter, considers the difficulty of convincing news organizations of the need to analyze as well as film blood and death; and reporter/cameraman Neil David describes his work in Vietnam and Cambodia, which ultimately cost him his life.
