It it not quite what you asked for but you may be interested in a TV programme broacast in england (BBC) that has a section about this event, if you mean his burning in a cave hideout at the hands of the british. I had didigtised this program and put it up on some webspace in the past for users of this forum that were intetested in the program. The VHS tape I had as source material was in very poor shape so the digitised version is very rough in places but still watchable. The section that I think relates to this man and the events surrounding his death are here

www.visionmatters.co.uk/cyprus/video/cyppart2.wmv

at around 6.30mins into the clip

for anyone interested in the whole program the first part is

Thats strange - its working fine from here. You do have to have windows media player or some other media player that supports .wmv files for it to work.

To be honest I have not watched it in a long while so could not really comment with any solid opinion. From memory it does not seek to make any judgments but to relay the events that happened using contemporary news footage, interviews with some key people (GC, TC and British). I think it certainly tires to offer a fair and accurate view - as to how well it sucseeds I would have to watch it again to properly answer that.

Did you watch it? Do you see the film as a fair protrayal of history? (or is the very asking of this question to you just more 'tit for tat' game playing on my part?)
