Jill Jolliffe has been following the Balibo Five story for 34 years. She was
in Portuguese Timor for three months reporting the death of five colleagues
at Balibo in October 1975. She was evacuated from Dili days before
Indonesian troops attacked the capital on the 7 December 1975.

In 'Balibo' the updated version of the book originally published as
'Cover-up' in 2001, and on which the film 'Balibo' is based, Jill Jolliffe
details the events surrounding the murder of the Balibo Five journalists and
of Roger East. Part memoir, part history, this searing book is as much an
indictment of the Balibo killers as it is of Australia's role in East
Timor's recent tragic history.

Balibo is now released as a feature film starring Anthony La Paglia.
