On 9/11 in 1973, a disaster even greater than that which occurred in 2001 took place in Chile. In the 9/11 America forgot, President Salvador Allende was murdered in his palace, politicians were slain and tens of thousands of people tortured, murdered and ‘disappeared’. Is the US repeating this in Venezuela? Pablo Navarrete is a British-Chilean journalist and documentary film maker with particular expertise in Venezuela. He joins Sputnik to tell us what's happening there today. Next, we look at Britain’s greatest invention: the National Health Service. But it’s in dire danger of being strangled by underfunding and creeping remorseless privatization. Celebrated filmmaker Peter Bach talks about his new film ‘NHS Selloff’.
