A panel of journalists who were blacklisted under military rule discuss how they gathered information from outside Burma, and the tremendous courage of their sources within the country. The program includes a special surprise award presented by the panel to one of those “unsung heroes”, U Nay Min, for his bravery and personal sacrifice in getting information to outside reporters during the 1988 popular uprising against the regime.
