Synopsis

In 1971, Katherine Graham was the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, The Washington Post, trying to secure the paper’s long-term financial security by launching on the stock exchange. When its rival The New York Times began publishing The Pentagon Papers – a devastating, classified government report outlining how successive presidents knew that Vietnam had turned into an unwinnable war, but fought on regardless – Graham and her editor Ben Bradlee race against time to catch up and expose the level of cover-up taking place. Their actions launched an unprecedented battle between the media and government, raising issues around the freedom of the press that have once again become extremely pertinent.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
