World In Focus: 6 Minutes to Midnight

An episode of late night UK current affairs review World In Focus aired in October 1985, in which photo-journalist Alain Guillon and author Hal Eisner discuss the emerging geopolitical crisis with presenter Jeremy Miller.

The recording purports to have originated from the Veidt Industries video archive. It details its source as ‘KARNAK’ the significance of which is unclear.

These are the final releases from The New Frontiersman, part of the WATCHMEN campaign I am honored to have worked on with The Picture Production Company. Dan Light, head of Interactive at The PPC, wrote an excellent retrospective of the campaign that is an absolute must-read. Thanks, Dan, for inviting me to collaborate with your talented team. It’s truly been an incredible experience. ≠)
