Implementation of public programs and discussions nation-wide to accompany the eighteen-hour documentary series by Ken Burns, The Vietnam War.

This proposal requests support for a national engagement campaign to accompany The Vietnam War, an eighteen-hour documentary film series about the history and meaning of the Vietnam War, directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick of Florentine Films, co-produced by WETA, and slated for PBS broadcast in 2017. As the first major documentary assessment of the subject since the early 1980s, the time for this national conversation is overdue. The dialogue will take place in many venues: across generations and throughout America, between pro and anti-war factions, between veterans of different wars, among policy makers and leaders, through social media and online, between military and civilian communities and within the military itself, in high school and college classrooms, and across America’s many racial and ethnic divides. The national engagement effort will be focused on three key areas: community engagement, digital and new media, and educational initiatives.

Development of a four-hour documentary film series about Asian Americans in the United States from the mid-19th century to the present.

"The Asian Americans" is a proposed four-hour film series about the unique and evolving identity, contributions, and challenges experienced by Asian Americans in the United States over the past 150 years. Through the stories of Asian Americans, we will see the United States expand into the West and onto the world stage. We will explore the familiar immigrant experience of hope and disappointment, opportunity and struggle--but also a new one: legal exclusion. Through the eyes of Asian Americans, we will witness three wars fought in Asia in a single century; and rethink America's global position as Asian nations continue to rise economically and militarily. Through the exploration of this complex history, the series will reveal the contradictory responses our nation has had to its growing diversity: resentment and racism as well as embrace and inclusion, while raising questions about the future for Asian Americans and our nation as a whole.

Production of a ten-part, 18-hour television series exploring the Vietnam War from a range of U.S. and Vietnamese perspectives.

"The Vietnam War" is a 10-part documentary series by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick that brings to life one of the defining events of 20th-century American history. Airing on PBS in 2017, it will present a groundbreaking narrative of the war intended to inspire a long overdue conversation about this watershed in our history. The film is informed by the best and most recent scholarship about the war, and built around interviews with nearly one hundred American and Vietnamese witnesses, as well as exhaustively researched archival material from around the globe. It addresses wide-ranging themes including colonialism, nationalism and the Cold War; the nature of leadership; propaganda and the creation of media; diversity, class and ethnicity; the changing American cultural landscape; and religion, ethics and morality. The attached proposal describes plans for the production of the film, its comprehensive website, and an outreach campaign designed to engage a broad and diverse audience.

Production of a two-part, four-hour television series about the Korean War that places the international conflict in historical context and considers its geopolitical and military legacies.

The 38th Parallel is a proposed four-hour documentary series about a war that Americans have long underestimated, misunderstood, and misrepresented. The Korean War was a gigantic global event: twenty-four nations took part in a conflict that lasted three full years. The war killed four million people. Even so, Korea has been almost-famously forgotten by the American public. Bookended by World War II and Vietnam, the Korean War marked little that anyone in this country wanted to remember and a great deal that everyone wanted to forget. It was a brutal conflict that put the first dent in the myth of American exceptionalism and brought the world close to a nuclear war. But the Korean War needs to be remembered. It determined American military and foreign policy for the next 60 years; the world we live in today, where the US all but routinely intervenes in far-off conflicts, was born with Korea. The Korean War changed everything.

Production of a three-part, six-hour documentary with a companion website about the rise, rule, and repeal of the 18th Amendment in its social, cultural, and political contexts.

PROHIBITION is a six-hour, three-part documentary film series that will explore the rise, rule, and fall of the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the entire era it encompassed. The series will examine the social, political, and cultural forces that converged to make the Amendment's passage possible, the far-reaching impact of Prohibition on American life, and the country's eventual disillusionment with the edict, which culminated in repeal. The series will be broadcast nationally in prime time on PBS in 2011, and will be accompanied by extensive educational outreach materials and a major promotional campaign to drive tune-in. In addition a web site will be created for the film to be housed on pbs.org.

Production of the first two one-hour episodes of a six-part television series examining the history of Latino Americans, accompanied by a radio series and a website.

The Latino Americans will be a six-hour film series, the chronicle of the arrival and lives of Latinos in the United States in the last 200 years -- a story of people, politics, and culture from 1800 to 2000.?? It is a long and diverse story, as any history of the immigration of a major population and its aftermath must be -- especially a story that hopes to describe what the U.S. Census now counts as the largest ethnic bloc in the United States. Immigration is at the heart of American experience and our series intersects much that is central to that history including Manifest Destiny, the Wild West and multiple wars (including Mexican-American, Spanish-American and World War II). With most Americans unfamiliar with this history, The Latino Americans will be a landmark media event that is long overdue.
