Mugabe’s Secret Famine

Journalist PETER OBORNE and filmmaker PAUL YULE go into Zimbabwe undercover to verify reports that Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwian dictator who had banned foreign journalists from Zimbabwe, was deliberately starving those districts that voted against his regime. Secretly filmed under conditions of considerable danger, this film hit a nerve and led directly to the Nasser Hussain’s English cricket team cancelling their matches in Zimbabwe during the World Cup of 2003. It also had an impact in questioning British foreign policy, raising the question, immediately before the Bush/Blair sponsored Iraqi war of 2003, of whether the democracies of the world should intervene in the face of tyranny.
