More than 10 years in the making, The Vietnam War is Ken Burns & Lynn Novick’s latest and most ambitious documentary series yet. Spanning 10 episodes totaling 18 hours, this highly anticipated and immersive look at the Vietnam War will premiere on September 17, 2017 on PBS. Eschewing “old tropes” from Hollywood movies, the documentary will rely heavily on first-person accounts from Vietnam veterans, civilians, former POWs, North Vietnamese soldiers & Vietcong guerillas, anti-war activists, and journalists for a well-rounded perspective on one of the most controversial & divisive periods in American history.
SFC David Hack (CEO of US Wings and a decorated Vietnam veteran and Purple Heart recipient) encourages everyone to watch this important television event. Although Vietnam vets were subjected to much bitter condemnation during this controversial period, Sgt. Hack was proud to serve his country and hopes this documentary leads to healing and a better understanding of what Vietnam veterans experienced.
You can watch The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns & Lynn Novick on your local PBS station. It will also be available for streaming on the web and through the PBS app for smartphones, tablets, Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV (full details here).
