Description
Paul Davies interviews the British Tyler family in Khartoum, about their experiences as hostages of Eritrean guerillas in Ethiopia. Held captive for eight months, their main problems appear to have been boredom and a lack of stimulation for the children. (The family were released in 01/77, according to The Times, so the 1976 transmission date may be wrong).
