Weekend watching: Holodomor’s TV debut in Canada 1983

Back in 1983, Radio Quebec’s Planète featured the first documentary on the Holodomor on TV. A very good programme, it featured many testimonials of heartbreaking stories from this intentional genocide. It even features James Mace, the prominent Harvard researcher who published works on how the Holodomor was in fact genocide. It also mentions the Walter Duranty of the New York Times who denied the famine out right to the West, as well as the complicity of the British government not to help because of it’s relationship with the Soviet Union at the time.
