If you follow that link, the already aired episodes are available to stream, you don't have to watch it on the TV if you dont want to

I have been watching it.  It is a great documentary.  I just hope something similar comes out for the Iraq war.

Since were in Off-Topic. I'll go off-topic :)

Here are two interesting interviews of Michael Ware who was embedded many times during the second Iraq war and was there from the beginning. The first interview is just after he was embedded in the battle of Fallujah in 2004. Not a documentary, sorry but I found these interviews pretty fascinating

The BBC have picked this up, apparently an abridged version at only 10hrs instead of the full 18. So that's my IPlayer time sorted for when wifey commandeers the TV for endless decorating shows.

Brilliant Doc.

 

Burns finally got a hold of some fmv.

 

Great interviews, new perspectives especially from the N. Vietnamese Army.

 

Great. Great. Great.

Donate to PBS to watch it, that's our budget US BBC.

 

They do thrones in the UK on their Public Channel....
