|1984, 99 minutes, The role of media manipulation of the news is also the starring role in this political drama involving a female broadcast journalist who travels to Africa to cover a breaking story about a revolution, only to have her material cut and recast back in her London studios. Lisa Ford (Gayle Hunnicutt), her cameraman (Siegfried Rauch), and her Cuban advisor (James Faulkner) are taken to the head of the guerrilla forces (Ken Gampu) who holds two young women hostage (to attract world attention to his cause). As the cameraman films the story and Lisa adds her commentary, they themselves have to choose and select what they show since there is not enough air time to run hours and hours of videotape. Once their installments reach the program controller in London (Trevor Howard), he uses his own judgment to basically censor Lisa's story. director Francis Megahy.|
