Project Vietnam

In 1983, Boston public television station WGBH co-produced the landmark documentary Vietnam: A Television History. Project Vietnam is a partnership between CCNMTL, WGBH, and the University of Massachusetts-Boston to digitize, preserve, and disseminate materials created and archived for this 13-part documentary. The project enables students to discover and watch full-length interviews and a range of stock footage that illuminates the causes and consequences of the Vietnam War; annotate, edit, and create sub-collections of this footage; and incorporate clips into multimedia projects.
