Documentary film about former Sunday Times editor Sir Harold Evans.

Before the internet. Before social media. Before breaking news. The victims of Thalidomide had to rely on something even more extraordinary to fight their corner: Investigative journalism. This is the story of how Harold Evans fought and won the battle of his and many other lives.

ATTACKING THE DEVIL unflinchingly documents how Harold Evans and the Insight team at The Sunday Times campaigned for the victims of Thalidomide. How their campaign marked a British legal watershed. And how through this and other landmark campaigns, Harold Evans secured his place as a legend of investigative journalism.

UK, 2014, 102 min; Dir. David Morris, Jacqui Morris
