The author of a highly acclaimed documentary on Afghanistan recounts how and why he took a television team into Afghanistan in the summer of 1982. He believes the Soviet occupation is almost totally unreported in the West and asks why this should be so. "Should not the war correspondents be there, as they were in Vietnam and Lebanon?" It is a fair question.
