WAR CORRESPONDENTS bears witness to those who risk their lives in extreme circumstances in order to tell the truth to the outside world. Chadwick and creative collaborator Miriam Nabarro interviewed over 30 journalists working internationally in conflict zones. Helen has transformed parts of these interviews into songs. “I keep hoping that some day, if we keep telling the truth, it will be better for all of us”, so said a Liberian journalist when speaking about why he felt compelled to take such risks telling the stories he dared to tell.
