- Program Description
Caught in the cross-fire of big power politics, tyrannized by their own leaders, Cambodia's people have been ravaged by war, repression, disease, famine. There were seven million Cambodians ten years ago; some three million have died since then. This program traces the impact of the Vietnam War, the fall of Prince Sihanouk, the Khmer Rouge Pol Pot regime through footage shot by Swiss journalist Hans Peter Stalder and an interview with Dith Pran. Narrated by Stanley Karnow.
