An account of the Anti-Poll Tax Demonstration on March 31, 1990, which is radically different from that presented by television news. Shunning the conventional “talking heads” approach, eyewitnesses tell their stories against a backdrop of video footage showing the day’s events. Demonstrators’ testimonies raise some uncomfortable questions: questions about public order policing, the independence and accountability of the media and the right to demonstrate.
The events and procedures in this film do not necessarily reflect modern policy but is a useful historic record.
