On June 13, 2017, the Newseum, in partnership with WETA and PBS, hosted a special preview of “The Vietnam War,” the new film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. The screening focused on media and war, with a specific look at how the Vietnam War was covered by journalists.

Following the screening, Burns and Novick discussed the film with veteran CBS reporter Bill Plante, who reported on the Vietnam War early in his career.

“The Vietnam War” is a ten-part, 18-hour documentary film series that will air on PBS in September 2017.

Recorded in the Newseum’s Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theater.
