11:15 Sniping – History, Legality and Entertainment Value

Jason CaylessAmerican Sniper is breaking box office records in the United States and around the world.

Sunday producer Jeremy Rose speaks to historian, professor Glyn Harper about attitudes to snipers during the First World War; and Wallace Chapman interviews Tim Wood, a former military lawyer with the Royal Air Force and now a senior lecturer at Massey University’s Centre for Defence and Security Studies; and former New Zealand soldier and budding filmmaker Jason Cayless – whose first short film was about a sniper fighting terrorists.
