Summary
  • Portrait of Neil Davis, c. 1974. Born Tasmania 1934-02-14, killed Bangkok 1985-09-09. Neil Davis was for over twenty years one of the worlds's greatest cameramen and journalists. "From the early 1960's until he was killed in September 1985, Davis brought images of war on three continents to the world's television screens. But it is for his coverage of the conflict in Indo-China that he is best remembered. He went into the field with the Viet Cong as well as American Forces in Vietnam, and filmed the war in Cambodia and Laos. And he scooped the world with his film of the taking of Saigon's Presidential Palace in 1975 - the symbol of American defeat." After the Vietnam War Davis covered many of the world's conflicts for the American National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC), eventually settling in Bangkok. It was in Bangkok in 1985, filming a perennial Thai Army coup, that he was killed by machine gun fire from a Thai rebel tank. (Source: One Crowded Hour, by Tim Bowden. Sydney, Collins, 1987.)
