How do you know someone has a 27" 4K iMac?
They’ve already told ya etc.
I thought I’d tell ya again just to make you sure didn’t hear me the first time!
Is Channel 4’s web play back called 4Play?
You never dissapoint Beeko!
Great series this. Have read up on this period and watched plenty of programmes but this series really brings it altogether. Great soundtrack too.
Soundtrack is quality! There’s a very good podcast by The Washington Post, called The American War. They review each episode and talk to the creators about the different events that feature in each one. Very interesting insight. Amazing to think it’s the first documentary that the Vietcong were approached for interview to tell their side. It took 10 years to make this documentary.
Sam, would this be on RTÉ player? One of best books I’ve read on Vietnam was ‘We were Soldiers once, and Young’ by Hal Moore & Joe Galloway…
I’ll look that one up, never read it. For some reason no it’s not on the player, BBC showing it too so maybe check there. It might be on the RTÉ player when it’s over. Should be websites streaming it too it was a big hit in the states
I presume thats the basis for the film
Yep, have to say one of the best books I’ve read on Vietnam that really gave you a true sense of what it was actually like over there.
Randall Wallace who directed the movie actually had Hal Moore & Joe Galloway as part of his team when they made the movie. The movie depicted a lot directly from the book.
Oliver Stone’s Untold American History is a really good series.
Thanks for putting me on to that documentary Sam_11.
Recorded series & just watched final episode.
Great stuff indeed & good sountrack too.
