Passage written by Kim Il-Sung, observing how the British and German armies had been viewed by their contemporaries as most barbaric, but that the US-committed atrocities in the Fatherland Liberation War were far more barbaric than anything before.

Title scene: "The Fatherland Liberation War: The Barbaric Atrocities of the US Imperialist Aggressors"

A lone plane flies over three plumes of smoke on the horizon

Nine planes are shown flying in formation, from the ground

US bombers releasing scores of bombs are filmed from the side

A row of large explosions tear across a cityscape

View from inside a plane of bombs being released

Half-destroyed buildings explode, power lines are broken, civilians hurry underneath amidst rubble

A building facade stands alone, with smoking rubble behind it

Civilians pick their way through a destroyed part of a city

Two baby girls huddle in a thick blanket whilst it snows around them

Civilians appear to be burying, or digging, amongst the rubble

Panoramic of smoking ruins

**Please note: this programme was produced by the Documentary Film Studio of the DPRK and offers a version of events, commentary and opinion from the perspective of the DPRK.**

This tape does not focus on chronological events of the Korean War, but instead looks at the effect on DPRK civilian life of UN attacks. Whilst it isn't arranged chronologically, footage deals with the war from 1951 to 1953. From the outset, and repeated on occasion throughout, the tape claims that the US army committed barbaric acts of such atrocity surpassing those of Hitler. Main themes of the atrocities are:

- Total UN air superiority allowed the total aerial destruction of most DPRK towns and cities during the two-year impasse from 1951

- US-inspired germ warfare attacks in 1951

- Individual acts of barbarity by US soldiers

Much of the footage is potentially shocking and disturbing.

The tape praises the post-war reconstruction on the levelled cities, and includes footage of DPRK families enjoying the modernist cities of Pyongyang and Hamheung.
