Frederick Forsyth reveals how he resigned from the BBC to report from Biafra– and attack the British government.

Jonathan Dimbleby describes the risks he took in filming The Unknown Famine– which toppled an emperor.

Mohamed Amin and Michael Buerk tell how their last-minute partnership in Ethiopia created the harrowing film which so moved Bob Geldof.

NEWS OUT OF AFRICA draws on these and other first-hand accounts of reporting famine to explore:

• the random and often accidental way in which news is selected.

• the exploitation of the media by both individuals and governments, missionaries and revolutionaries.

• the disturbing implications of television's increasing dependence on satellites and electronic news gathering.
