To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the opening of the International Military Tribunal for the Far East, SMG News aired a 3-episode documentary series, The Tokyo Trials. Lasting more than two-and-a-half years, the trials became the longest legal proceedings in human history, leaving behind piles of data and records that set precedent for military tribunals of today. In the battle for the truth, judges from 11 allied countries tried the 28 Class A Japanese war criminals. Our camera crew traveled to the USA, Germany and Japan for exclusive video clips and interviews with scholars and politicians to reproduce this watershed period of history.
