Over an impressive 35 year career John Pilger's determination to uncover the truth and unearth the facts underlying numerous social and political injustices has taken him to every corner of the globe.
DISC 1 The New Rulers Of The World. John Pilger explores the impact of globalisation, taking Indonesia as his prime example, a country that the World Bank described as a 'model pupil' until its 'globalised' economy collapsed in 1998. Under scrutiny are the increasingly powerful multinationals and the institutions that back them, notably the IMF and The World Bank.
DISC 2 War By Other Means. In this multi-award winning film John Pilger and David Munro examine the policy of First World banks in undertaking loans with Third World countries, and expose the humanitarian/social issues that arise when these countries are unable to meet the crippling interest charges.
DISC 3 Burp! Pepsi v Coke in The Ice Cold War. This is the first film made by John Pilger with director Alan Lowery, a fellow Australian. It looks at the worldwide struggle for soft drink supremacy by the Coca Cola Company, illuminating the overwhelming power of multinational corporations over poorer countries and their struggling economies.
