Public Enemy Number One
- 60 minutes
For most of his working life, controversial Australian journalist Wilfred Burchett chose to report from the "other side". His unorthodox views and activities caused him to be labelled a traitor by many. Burchett was the first Western journalist to report on the devastating after effects of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. He believed that the West was wrong to intervene in Korea. During the Vietnam war he lived among the Viet Cong, and was a friend and admirer of Ho Chi Minh.
