John Dinges asked us to share this information with you:

The film was produced by the BBC in collaboration with John Dinges, based on his book, The Condor Years: How Pinochet and His Allies Brought Terrorism to Three Continents. The Sundance promo is at www.sundancechannel.com.


DISCOVERY PROGRAM ON LETELIER-MOFFITT INVESTIGATION

As we told you last month, the Discovery Channel has produced an episode of its series "The FBI Files" on the Letelier-Moffitt investigation. Broadcast of the show, titled "Death of a Diplomat," was delayed due to the hurricane. It is now scheduled to air:

OCT 01 2005 @ 09:00 PM (et/pt)
OCT 02 2005 @ 01:00 AM (et/pt)
OCT 07 2005 @ 07:00 PM (et/pt)
OCT 19 2005 @ 03:00 PM (et/pt)

You can check Discovery's listings at dsc.discovery.com.

IPS received an advance preview of the film. It is based heavily on interviews with former FBI agents, as well as former prosecutors. Former FBI agents Carter Cornick and Larry Wack cooperated with the filmmakers, as did former prosecutor Eugene Propper. The film omits the important role played by groups and individuals outside government in the investigation and the broader pursuit of justice for victims of the Pinochet regime. But given the focus of the "FBI Files" series, this is to be expected, and the film provides a detailed historical account of their perspective on the case.
