9:06 The Tuesday Feature: Kim Sabido’s Story
Kim Sabido was a rookie war reporter when he went to the Falklands war in 1982, and recorded and reported on some of the fiercest fighting on the mountains above the Islands' capital, Stanley - unprepared for the close combat, injury and shelling he saw. Many veterans of the conflict continue to suffer nightmares, flashbacks and panic attacks, and some of those who witnessed the fighting were also deeply mentally scarred.
For the first time, five years ago, Kim talked about his personal experiences in the war, and returned to the Islands to confront the memories which had haunted him for decades.
He revists Islanders he met during the conflict, and goes back to the places where he saw the fiercest battles as he tries to confront and make peace with the past.
Produced by Susie Ferguson for British Forces Broadcasting Service.
