•The British premiere of the film
was in November 2009, in Cambridge
together with a special exhibit ofsome
of his diaries in the Wren Library
at Trinity College, Gareth’s second alma mater; from where he received a 1st class degree in Russian & German
language & literature.
•By now the world’s media were
paying attention and 200 articles
were published by the worldwide press, including The London Times and The Washington Post, along with BBC TV and radio coverage. Gareth’s website had over 100,000 hits that week.
Conspicuous by its absence was The New York Times whose complicity in allowing Gareth’s name to be denigrated by Walter Duranty continues to
this day. So much for the ‘Grey
Lady’s maxim; ‘All the news that’s fit to print’.
