Vietnam-letters home

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by In-the-Van, Oct 7, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone else remember a [i think channel 4] documentary, possibly arena or some such arty-farty series, called 'Letters home from Vietnam'?

    It would have been late eighties/early nineties, and format was famous actors reading actual letters from those at the front, against a backdrop of news footage and period music.

    The reason I ask is that Mrs Vanguard has consigned the video player to history, and I need to source a DVD of said documentary. Any help would be appreciated, and I recommend anyone who gets the chance, to watch it.

  3. An excellent documentary (if it can be called that). All being well, I will be at the Vietnam memorial in Washington DC this December and really looking forward to seeing it.

  4. Just obtained a copy of this...awesome.

    Recomended viewing for anyone with a passing/avid interest on the effect of warfare on the individual.

    This was repeeated on one of the Sky channels last year.
    Excellent program.
     
  6. Front Line by David Bradbury is worth a look. The cameraman who took the film was later killed in a Bangkok coup.
