This tv documentary mini-series was ahead of it's time. Produced in part by PBS superstation WGBH in Boston, this documentary series explained the Vietnam War from all perspectives: leftist liberal, conservative, American and Vietnamese. The show presented the facts and let the audience come up with it's own conclusions. The approach used in this production is unusual for mainstream media; yet highly welcomed. I remember watching this mini series multiple times and enjoying it. The mini series would, years later help me relate to my dad....who is a Viet Nam vet.
