Fast-food giants McDonald’s are getting a 50th birthday present which is about as good for them as a birthday meal in one of their own outlets. The makers of McLibel – the excellent documentary (reviewed in NI 305) that told the story of Helen Steel and David Morris’s epic battle with McDonald’s – have updated it to make a feature-length film which includes the campaigners’ recent victory at the European Court of Human Rights. The Court ruled that the British Government was wrong to deny legal aid to the pair when McDonald’s launched the longest High Court libel case in history against them.

You can get hold of the updated McLibel on dvd – and relish a supersize victory for democracy – by contacting Spanner Films via:
