Television's Vietnam

Television's Vietnam Lowest used price: $49.87

Were the 58,132 Americans killed in the Vietnam War "sent to die on a fool's errand with no purpose?" Or were they engaged in a noble cause to halt the spread of communism? Why did we lose this war, despite our overwhelming military superiority? Was it because our own media undermined the will of the American people to fight to win?

These important questions are raised by Charlton Heston in Television's Vietnam, a two-part documentary in which military experts, scholars, journalists and Vietnamese exiles contrast what actually happened in Vietnam with widespread myths and misunderstandings.

Produced in response to angry protests from Vietnam veterans and Vietnamese exiles about Public Broadcasting's $5.6 million series, Vietnam: A Television History, Accuracy in Media's Television's Vietnam has made television history.

Part One, The Real Story, is the first and only documentary ever aired by a network devoted to exposing errors in a previously aired documentary series. It presents evidence showing that Vietnam: A Television History had unjustly maligned American fighting men, our Vietnamese allies, our Vietnam veterans, and had falsely glorified our enemy.

Part Two, The Impact Of Media, shows that misleading reporting from Vietnam contributed significantly to the loss of will to do what was necessary to keep South Vietnam from falling to the Communists.

Both stories have been highly praised by Vietnam veterans and Vietnamese exiles for setting the record straight and explaining why our "noble cause" ended in tragedy. President Ronald Reagan praised them as films that "all Americans should see."

This 1998 documentary is haunted by the memory of Denver's tragic death shortly after production. That loss to his many fans and admirers makes many a moment in this production especially poignant, juxtaposing the singer-songwriter's artistic legacy with his other great passion in life: nature. There is lively footage of Denver on the Colorado River along with his children, and a campside scene in which his son and daughter witness him composing a song (the last one of his life, as it turned out). Denver also pays a visit to Alaska and spends quality time among eagles, wolves, and--with a certain drama--a huge herd of caribou. But this is also a look back on the man's career, through recollection and old footage. Even those with the most casual appreciation of Denver's body of warm, folksy songs can't help but be touched by this special. --Tom Keogh
