PostSubject: Vietnam war by Ken Burns and   Wed 27 Sep 2017, 20:45

Saw yesterday and today the four of five hours documentary on which they have seemingly 10 years worked as it was in French and near to PBS arte was also mentioned, I was not sure if it was an American documentary. But when I saw the name Burns on which I had a very good rememberance of his WWII documentary I did a bit further research on the net.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_War_(2007_TV_series)

I really appreciate that style of documentary, the old manner as the BBC historical documentaries of a former time, for instance the "world at war" and even Granada TV had good stuff.
I didn't find an English language version or it has to be episode 4

If one understands French, one can look to the complete series on Arte +7 till 19 october...Meles meles?

Kind regards, Paul.

PS: Temperance I don't have forgotten our thread, but I have first to gather some background information to not come over as a complete imbécile...

Addendum

Of course the title has to be Ken Burns and Lynn Novick...
How that is lost now is behind my comprehension

Regards, Paul.

Triceratops,

excellent documentary, old BBC style. That's how a good documentary has to be made.

I really enjoyed it and during the nearly 5 hours have never skipped through the episodes as I someonce do with more recent documentaries with parts played by nowadays actors.
I said it already for the French and German speaking ones it is still available to watch till the end of October as I explained in the link above. (I have it all on the hard disc of my telenetconnector too)
If you buy the DVDs you will certainly not regret it (from what I know from you Wink )

Kind regards from Paul.

Paul,

I'm sure it will be a good film. I've already got the American Civil War one, and it is excellent:

Triceratops,

I have not yet seen The Civil War, but I have seen The War about WWII as seen by four different American soldiers...

Kind regards, Paul.
