'A small town tragedy' (1982)

Correspondence and papers re and arising from Granada Television's World in Action (WIA) documentary ‘A small town tragedy’ (1982), investigating the refusal of British company Cape Industries Ltd to pay compensation awarded against them in an American court of law to workers of their North American subsidiary company in Bloomington, Illinois. The transmission of ‘A small town tragedy’ brought Flynn in contact with a number of American tort lawyers.

  • draft article by Flynn on Cape Industries having found a new and formidable opponent in the US government
  • responses to WIA programme 'A small town tragedy' (transmitted 5 July 1982): Granada Television internal notes and memoranda re the legality of the programme, press reaction to the programme, Cape complaint to the Independent Broadcasting Authority
