- Series Description
Documentary series with international stories. Predecessor to FRONTLINE, executive producer David Fanning. Five seasons from 1978-1981. "WORLD has presented a series of international documentaries. One of our concerns has been to show the world as others see it, and we are committed to the idea that we should include those who normally don't have a chance to have their voices heard." -- quote from opening to Blacks Britannica (1978) Series release date: 1978
- Program Description
Despite a U.S. arms embargo since 1964, and a United Nations embargo since 1977 - shipments which plainly violate both embargoes make their way to South Africa from an American defense contractor. Involved in one way or another are the governments of Canada, Great Britain and the United States. This program follows the voyage of a cargo ship taking an arms shipment to Cape Town.
