- This film sequence was shot by an ITN cameraman
in Hungary in 1956.
- Almost all the shots were taken in secret. The
Soviets closed down all the radio and TV stations in November 1956. Some of
the fiercest fighting was around those buildings.
- This is also the reason why there is no commentary
with the film.
- The casualty figures are not reliable, but estimates
suggest that 3,000 Hungarians were killed, and around 7,000 Russians. Some
300,000 Hungarians fled into exile, mainly in Austria.
