Description & Features+
Vietnam: The Ten Thousand Day War is the landmark documentary series that won several awards when it first aired in 1981. Decades later it stands up as a triumph of investigative reporting and the journal of record for the thirty year conflict that traced a path along the spine of the Cold War. The series’ 26 episodes run up and down the Ho Chi Minh trail - from the slow burning collapse of the French colonial regime after World War II to the puppet regimes propped up by the United States and ultimately to the Gulf Of Tonkin Resolution and the undeclared war of ideologies that tore the roof off the American military-industrial complex, if not the White House itself. Writer and CNN correspondent Peter Arnett packs every minute with a mixture of military, political and intelligence testimony from key historical figures, told with a candor and journalistic balance that would be unheard of today. Illustrating every move is rare proprietary footage, much of it from North Vietnamese sources thanks to producer Michael Maclear, the first western journalist allowed to visit the region after the war. This long-awaited DVD version, restored from the original broadcast masters, includes new graphics and maps to enhance the epic story that has never been better told.
