A Documentary about the psychological cost of covering wars.

Only two journalists were killed in World War I.  Sixty-three journalists were killed in World War II.  In the last two decades almost a journalist a week has been killed, with the dead numbering in the thousands.   The conclusions are obvious.  Journalism in times of war has become an increasingly lethal endeavor - and extremely traumatic – as journalists are now viewed as natural targets by combatants; subject to kidnapping, torture and even beheadings.  With journalists facing these new realities, UNDER FIRE weaves together combat footage and first-hand accounts by the journalists who were there to reveal what they see, think and feel as they confront the physical danger and savagery of war.  (Running time – 1:30)

Directed and Produced by Martyn Burke. 

Produced by Anthony Feinstein
