This International Dateline episode includes three segments: George Galloway - Wanted - For Anti-War Crimes, James Naughtie Interview, and Reverend Sofyan Yoman & Peter King Interview.
George Galloway - Wanted - For Anti-War Crimes
Dateline's Bronwyn Adcock recently spent a couple of memorable weeks with the British MP, George Galloway, as he glad-handed his way from London's East End to the Middle East, but there is a serious twist to the Galloway tail... the allegations that he benefited from Iraq's Oil-for-Food Scheme may have been a set-up.
James Naughtie Interview
One of Galloway's staunchest enemies, Tony Blair, has been under almost constant attack, with calls becoming more raucous by the day from the media, the British public and from within his own party; all demanding that he step down. To bring us up to date on the Blair crisis, George Negus speaks with British broadcaster and political journalist, James Naughtie, in London.
Reverend Sofyan Yoman & Peter King Interview
The Reverend Socratez Sofyan Yoman, the head of the Baptist Church in Indonesia's Papua province, speaks with Dateline about what he describes as the "climate of fear and intimidation in West Papua," right now. Also, in the studio, is the Convenor of Sydney University's West Papua Project, Professor Peter King.
About International Dateline
SBS Dateline, which began in 1984, is Australia's longest-running international current affairs program. It has a well-earned reputation for authoritative and incisive reporting. Dateline has taken the traditional way of producing TV current affairs and turned it on its head. Reporters who used to travel with a cameraperson and sound recordist now travel alone and have the responsibility of both filming and reporting their stories. The reporters became video-journalists, gaining access to people and places that the conventional camera crews cannot.
