Synopsis : As the first journalist to describe the aftermath of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, Wilfred Burchett (1911—1983) has been widely recognized as one of the most important war correspondents in Australian history. For most of his working life, controversial Australian journalist Wilfred Burchett chose to report from the 'other side'. His unorthodox views and activities caused him to be labeled a traitor by many. Criticized ferociously by anti-communist groups and intelligence organizations in Australia and the US, the Australian Government denied him a passport for 17 years, forcing him to live in exile. At a time when much international reporting is dominated by ‘spin? and propaganda, this compelling autobiography resonates with these issues facing journalism today.
