Title : FAKE IMAGES: BAGHDAD HERE
Subject : WAR AND MEDIA

 

This documentary examines cases of fake journalists' reports, broadcasted by television channels in France, England and Greece.

Stelios Kouloglou conducted interviews with the reporters of the "Guardian", who unveiled the "Connection" scandal, and a representative of the ITC that fined the producers of the fake documentary. He also speaks with BBC reporter Martin Bell, and agent Kizi Nkouoza.

Reportage Without Frontiers also spoke with Fanis Papadakis, who in 1999 fooled two greek tv channels, claiming he was reporting from Baghdad, though he never got that far...

The documentary was filmed in London, Pafos, Nicosia and Athens.
