The Vietnam War

Thursday, September 14, 7 p.m.

Moderator: Jeff Smith, UNC-TV

Join us for a preview of the latest documentary from Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, three days before the 10-part series begins airing on PBS. Over its 18 hours, the series will feature interviews with nearly 80 people—Americans who fought in the war and some who opposed it, along with Vietnamese combatants and civilians—as well as digitally re-mastered archival footage, home movies, and photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th century.

The series will also include audio recordings from the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations; songs that defined the era; and some original music.
