Peoples Temple Collection; Box 14, Virtual Item 31, Q400 - Part 2, News of October 3, 1978; discussion of emigration to USSR

Jim Jones reads the news of the day for Tuesday, October 3, 1978.

While parts of the newscast may come from other wire services that Jones often used – the BBC, Voice of America, and European radio networks – he relies most heavily, and perhaps exclusively, on Radio Moscow and other Soviet news sources for this edition. It is not only the coverage of stories that reveals this, but the tone, the rhetoric and even the use of first-person pronouns when describing events in the Soviet Union and its allies.

Full summary of the recording available at Alternative Considerations of Jonestown website, along with the tape transcript.
