THE PUBLISHING OF THE REPORT COMES SHORTLY AFTER THIS FILM WAS RELEASED BY THE RHODESIAN AUTHORITIES. THIS IS AN EXTRACT TO DEPICT RHODESIAN READINESS AGAINST AN INVASION FORCE.

    THE RHODESIAN NEWSPAPER REPORT IS HEADED "NOWHERE TO HIDE". IT SAYS THAT WITHOUT THE CONSTANT VIGILANCE OF THE SECURITY FORCES, HELPED BY AFRICAN CIVILIANS "THE HORRORS AND ATROCITIES PLANNED IN THE ZAMBIAN CAPITAL OF LUSAKA AND THE TANZANIAN CAPITAL OF DAR-ES-SALAAM WOULD MATERIALISE."
