My Camera, My Life
My Camera, My Life is the autobiography of the internationally acclaimed television news cameraman and documentary filmmaker Sir Mohinder Dhillon. As a news cameraman, Mohinder is best known for his coverage – for ITN Television News in London, between the 1950s and the 1980s – of a succession of wars and conflicts in Africa and the Middle East.
As a maker of television documentaries, Mohinder has been instrumental in bringing to the world’s attention some of the most appalling humanitarian disasters of recent times, including the Ethiopian Famine of 1984-1985, which killed millions of people. Indeed, it was for his work in publicising this famine that, in 2005, he received a Knighthood – from the Imperial Ethiopian Order of Saint Mary of Zion.
