Next month Showcase has the Australian Premiere of the documentary Only the Dead.
Foxtel’s Brian Walsh told TV Tonight earlier this year, ““It is gripping television. Michael Ware is the photojournalist who came back from shooting all of the incredible footage in the Middle East and gathered material over a few years and compiled it into a riveting 2hr documentary. It’s very graphic and will be quite controversial.”
‘Only the Dead’ is a war story unlike any ever seen. It follows Michael Ware, an Australian journalist for CNN and Time Magazine who is transplanted into the Middle East following the impact of 9/11. Ware is one of the few Western journalists who lived fulltime in Iraq during the war, and this documentary is the story of what happens when an ordinary man undertakes a journey through the deepest recesses of the Iraq War, coming face to face with the most feared and most hated terrorists on the planet.
Sunday April 3 at 8.30pm.
