Reports on the viewing of the "Critical Period in Japan" during the tribunal proceedings as supporting proof offered by the prosecution against Sadao Araki. The film was a propaganda piece used to promote militarism and imperialism prior to the war. The defense protested the viewing due to the short notice and Sir William Webb ultimately adjourned the court until Monday so that both the prosecution and defense would have time to prepare.
