RHODESIAN FORCES PART I & II (PRODUCED BY MSASA ENTERPRISES)
AbstractVIDEO REVIEW: “Rhodesian Forces” is a two part video set currently being distributed by the South African based company, Msasa Enterprises. The set is the Msasa's first video release but will be followed by further titles. The videos are a compilation of footage detailing the bush war exploits of some of Rhodesia's most prestigious fighting units. This collection focuses on the Selous Scouts, the Special Air Service, the Rhodesian Light Infantry, the British South Africa Police the Rhodesian Air Force and the Chaplain's Corps. In addition, issues such as National Security receive attention. Most of the footage seems to have been taken from television documentaries produced by the Rhodesian Information Service. Some footage is actual live footage or news material whilst re-enacted scenes have also been included. The quality of the actual video film and sound is astounding and the producers have obviously gone to great lengths to technically re-master the original celluloid transcripts.
