The Vietnam War - A Film by Ken Burns
The definitive account of the Vietnam War is an epic 18-hour series on a subject Ken Burns believes is the most important event in modern American history.
The series that was broadcast on PBS features testimony from nearly 80 witnesses, including many Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as Vietnamese combatants and civilians from both the winning and losing sides. Six years in the making, the series brings the war and the chaotic epoch it encompassed viscerally to life, and includes footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th century, historic TV broadcasts, evocative home movies, and revealing audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon administrations. The series also features over 120 popular songs that define the era, including tracks from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Simon & Garfunkel, Janis Joplin, Ben E King, Phil Ochs, Donovan, Johnny Cash, Barry McGuire, Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, Otis Redding, Santana, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, The Temptations, Booker T and the MGs, Pete Seeger and more. 18hrs.
