SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE: The original release sheet reads: Southeast Asia examined on Army's "THE BIG PICTURE" -- The Southeast Asia Treaty Organization and its contribution to our mutual security is the subject for this episode in the Army's THE BIG PICTURE weekly television series. The western Pacific and Asia are vitally important parts of the world to the United States. Not only does this area contain a large percentage of all mankind and tremendous resources, but it is also a place where the Communists are making vigorous and ruthless aggression. Based upon the belief that most Americans do not know too much about the SEATO countries, THE BIG PICTURE staff sent cameras into Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Thailand and the Philippines. The result is a most unusual and dramatic episode in this seven-year-old television series. As pointed-up in the film, present Communist strategy in Southeast Asia is to undermine non-Communist governments by threat and subversion. In the three and a half years since SEATO's formation, the eight member nations have made long strides forward along the road to mutual security. FOR MORE INFORMATION:
