THE VIET­NAM WAR

The Arizona Republic - - MONEY -

PBS, PRE­MIER­ING TONIGHT

(Sun­days through Thurs­days, 8 ET/PT, times may vary)

With their lat­est film for PBS, Ken Burns and Lynn Novick tackle what may be their most con­tro­ver­sial topic yet: a war that ripped apart our na­tion’s so­cial and po­lit­i­cal fab­ric, cre­at­ing di­vi­sions that ex­ist to this day. For 18 hours over 10 nights, they at­tempt to ex­plain the war and its ef­fects, of­fer­ing as many per­spec­tives as pos­si­ble while try­ing to an­swer a ques­tion that still haunts so many who lived through the con­flict: “How could this have hap­pened?” It’s a hard ques­tion to face, but the wounds may never heal if we don’t.
