The TV Coverage of the Falklands War

Abstract : One of the main controversies highlighted by the Falklands war was the controversial relationship between the media and the army. While for the press industry the coverage of a conflict represents major commercial and journalistic issues that require to be exploited, for the army it always needs to be handled with care because of the impact it can have on the field and among diplomatic circles. This paper focuses first on the absence of images that characterized the Falklands war to try and understand the reverse flow of images that followed the end of the conflict. The final part is devoted to Peter Kosminsky's The Falklands Play as the archetype of a new form of documentary on modern warfare.
