Imprisionment in Argentina, and the subsequent return.
 
   
  During the Falklands War in 1982 Ian Mather, Defence Correspondent of The Observer, was arrested in Argentina. He was charged with espionage and locked up in Ushuaia Prison, Tierra Del Fuego - the most southerly prison in the world. This is his account of how he survived. It reveals how journalists are put in peril when governments blur the borderline between legitimate reporting and the murky world of espionage.
