New North Korean Documentary Shows Kim Jong Un's Close Involvement In Satellite Preparations

Yesterday Pyongyang Korean Central Television (KCTV) broadcast a 27 minute documentary on the recent Unha 3-2 rocket launch which underscored Kim Jong Un's close involvement in launch preparations. Entitled  "Successful Launch of Satellite Kwangmyongsong 3-2 under the Leadership of the Dear Respected Marshal Kim Jong-un", the documentary also included new footage showing detailed U'nha-3 rocket launch preparations.

Starting by talking about how DPRK scientists and technicians were able to develop a practical satellite just three years after the launch of a "test satellite" under the "energetic and meticulous leadership" of Kim Jong-un, the documentary describes efforts to accelerate the preparation for the launch of the satellite and highlights numerous instructions given by Kim Jong-un on the preparation work.
