Wayne Brittenden's Counterpoint

From Sunday Morning, 11:40 am on 27 January 2013

Opening in New Zealand this week is the controversial film Zero Dark Thirty the story of the tracking down of Osama Bin Laden. It's been criticised for its disturbing scenes of torture and for making no moral case against torture, though director Kathryn Bigelow insists that she's against such practices. In the light of the film's release and proposed new legislation in the UK that would make prosecution of torturers more difficult, Wayne takes a timely look at the subject.
