I picked up this book when I was in London last fall visiting the Frontline Club, having learned about this organization while doing research for a new novel. Frontline (unrelated to the PBS television series) was founded by a handful of Brits during the Soviet-Afghan War—all of them freelance correspondents: writers, photographers, videographers, filmmakers, etc. Journalists who are not on staff at major news outlets often jump into conflict hot spots with no funding, no insurance, and no suppo ...more

Buku ini menceritakan mengenai sejarah penubuhan Frontline News Television . Walaupun demikian,badan penyiaran ini yang bermula pada tahun 1989 telah ditamatkan perkhidmatannya pada tahun 2003.

I'm surprised though that I can't find any other reviews anywh ...more

An illuminating and gripping read for anyone interested in journalism. In war, it's usually the stories of soldiers and civilians that get told. But this book provides a glimpse into the world of the storytellers themselves.
