Beginning on October 3rd, The Vietnam War A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick will be broadcast weekly on Tuesday evenings. Following the conclusion of the second broadcast run of The Vietnam War on November 28, PBS will offer a companion program to the series called “Reflections on the Vietnam War”. The program tells the overall story of their groundbreaking film by featuring key, emotionally powerful and historic moments carefully woven together from the epic 18-hour film to convey the essence of this landmark production PLUS stories generated by PBS stations across America on the impact the War had on their own lives.


SUBMIT AN ORAL HISTORY


LPB is creating an oral history of the Vietnam era to inform and educate future generations about the war, the lessons learned, and, most importantly, the people who were part of it.
