Right now, PBS is in the midst of airing The Vietnam War, a ten-part, 18-hour documentary film series directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. The “immersive 360-degree narrative” tells “the epic story of the Vietnam War,” using never-before-seen footage and interviews. If you’re not watching the series on the TV, you can also view it on the web and through PBS apps for smartphones, tablets, Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire TV. Episode 1 appears above. Find all of them here.
Note: If these videos don’t stream outside of the US, we apologize in advance. Sometimes PBS geo-restricts their videos. Also, these videos likely won’t stay online forever. If you’re interested in watching the series, I’d get going sooner than later.
