Description
Interview with anti-apartheid campaigner Peter Hain, following his trial acquittal on theft charges (04/76) and after the publication of the Devlin report on identification evidence (05/76) - no trial without corroborative evidence of identity should have been included in the report; report in general does not go far enough; important to prevent more cases of mistaken identity. Male interviewer not identified.
