Uganda | Idi Amin | TV Eye | 1979

  • Thames TV's 'TV Eye' looks at the appalling state of affairs eight months after Idi Amin was overthrown. This film catalogues a terrible tale of woe - murder and looting with no proper police force to control it, broken-down hospitals, flattened towns with no materials to rebuild them, and a ruinous black market and asks what the western aid givers are doing about it. among the interviewees are the sister of the late king Freddie of Uganda, who describes how her son was shot in front of her, and Major Bob Astles, Amin's English adviser, who talks for the first time on television from his Ugandan prison.
    First shown: 13/12/1979
