  • Description

    Recipient of multiple awards – including the UN Media Peace Prize – John Pilger is a world-renowned journalist, author and factual film-maker who began his career in his native Australia before moving to London. He has been a foreign correspondent and frontline war reporter since 1967 and is a regular contributor to a wide range of international broadcast and print media. A passionate critic of foreign military and economic ventures by Western governments, Pilger's work uncovers shocking truths about the political forces that manifest themselves worldwide; leaving no stone unturned, he treads where many journalists fear to go.

    Originally broadcast in 1997, this film considers the downfall of the newspaper Pilger worked on for 23 years: a popular, intelligent tabloid once read by a quarter of the British population and which genuinely reflected its readers' concerns. Pilger asks why the qualities seen in the Daily Mirror prior to the 1970s are no longer apparent, examining the contraction of the press following the Sun's symbolic move to Wapping, coverage of the Hillsborough disaster, the fate of the Daily Mirror under Robert Maxwell, and the stranglehold of Rupert Murdoch.

    Released for the first time, Breaking the Mirror is accompanied by a brand-new John Pilger introduction, recorded in 2014.
