Radio Broadcast of the Philippine People Power Revolution

Radio Veritas, DZRJ/DZRB, Radio Bandido, DZRH

The collection of sound recordings of 44 audiocassette tapes and 1 mini-disc document the actual, unedited day-to-day radio broadcast of Radio Veritas, (a Catholic–owned radio station at the outskirts of Manila), DZRJ/DZRB, Radio Bandido, (a privately-owned radio station in Quezon City, then under the Ministry of National Defense), DZRH (a privately-owned radio station in Manila) and Voice of the Philippines (a government-owned radio station taken over by the people led by Radio Veritas on the 24th of February, 1986). The unbroken radio record over four days in 1986 is an unvarnished chronicle of a nation and its people at a crucial time in its history.

The collection was inscribed in UNESCO’s Memory of the World programme in 2003.

The Philippine Press Under Siege, Volumes 1 and 2

National Press Club of the Philippines and the Committee to Protect Writers

This two volume anthology contains newspaper articles by prominent journalists who wrote courageously about the authoritarian regime of President Marcos while he was still in power. It is the first time these articles have been gathered together in a book. As the foreword states, these articles “show the kind of ‘dangerous writing’ that has brought about the forced resignation, firing, blacklisting, arrest or detention of journalists, the padlocking or sequestering of a newspaper’s printing plant and equipment, and the filing of multi-million peso libel suits or subversive charges against writers, editors and publishers.”

The second volume contains more articles to serve as a “graphic documentation of the blood-and-sand state of a profession under siege, underlying the personal struggles and heartbreaks of the men and women of the Philippine press who now work under the shadow of death itself.”

Aptly called “The Philippine Press Under Seige.” A truly valuable anthology.

Days of Disquiet, Nights of Rage: The First Quarter Storm and Other Related Events

Jose Lacaba

A compilation of gripping on-the-spot reports on the First Quarter Storm first published in the Philippine Free Press and the Asia-Philippines Leader, Days of Disquiet, Nights of Rage was a pioneering example of the New Journalism emerging in the country in the 1970s. “Of our journalists, one of the most able in the new style is Jose F. Lacaba. As TV and newsreel do, he puts you right on the scene… [H]e communicates the emotion, even the meaning of what’s happening without having to spell it out.” – Quijano de Manila
