NEW JOHN PILGER FILM, 'BREAKING THE SILENCE', IS BROADCAST ON ITV
TONIGHT, SEPTEMBER 22.

 Following a packed preview at the National Film Theatre in London, John
Pilger's latest documentary, 'Breaking the Silence: Truth and lies in
the war on terror.' is broadcast on the ITV Network tonight at 10.45pm.
Pilger and his team filmed in Afghanistan and the United States and
acquired previously unseen material from Iraq. 

The film investigates George W Bush's "war on terror". In "liberated"
Afghanistan, America has its military base and pipeline access, while
the people have the warlords who are, says one women, "in many ways
worse than the Taliban". 

In Washington, a series of remarkable interviews includes senior Bush
officials and former intelligence officers. In the week that the Hutton
inquiry into the death of the British scientist Dr David Kelly releases
its report, a former senior CIA official tells Pilger that the whole
issue of weapons of mass destruction was "95 per cent charade".
