Turkish Invasion of Cyprus – 1974

Invasion of Cyprus – 1974

The crew from Thames TV’s ‘This Week’ programme come under fire from Turkish troops whilst embedded with British soldiers. The Turkish army has now completed the second phase of its Invasion of Cyprus the island is divided, and one third of its territory is in Turkish hands. The bitter reaction of the Greek Cypriot is the subject of Jonathan Dimbleby’s report from Cyprus. Dispossessed, seemingly abandoned by the Greek and American governments, clearly outnumbered in terms of conventional forces, the Greek Cypriots now prepare to foot for their pride, their constitution, and what remains of their island.
