PBS—The American Experience
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/vietnam/series/fd.html. In 1983, the unfolding of the Vietnam tragedy was the focus of an extraordinary documentary series broadcast on Public Television. When first aired, the series was recognized immediately as a landmark. It had taken six years to make. Researchers had combed film archives in 11 countries and the result was a stunning record of the conflict as it happened. The original 13-part program was later edited into 11 parts and rebroadcast in spring 1997. The Vietnam Online site provides a timeline, a section on “Who’s Who” in the war, primary sources, maps and a teacher guide. Check out other sources for the Vietnam War by using the “search” tool at the PBS site.
