World in Action: Volume 3

Synopsis
This DVD collects a number of notable episodes from the ITV current affairs series which ran from 1963-1999. The Granada-produced series was trailblazing and hard-hitting, choosing subjects that other programmes would not dare to touch and regularly getting into trouble with the ITV regulators and - at times - the Government.
