10.3 Mb. mono 23 minutes 44 seconds
Independent documentary film maker David Bradbury made a big impact on the English speaking world with his documentary about the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua, released in 1984. The centrepiece of this powerful documentary was a meeting with the last surviving founding member of the Sandinista National Liberation Front, Tomas Borge.
When Tomas Borge died at the age of 81, a few hours before Mayday, 2012, David shared some of his memories of the man with community radio, and the story of how his documentary "Nicaragua, No Pasaran" came to be made.
