Vietnam: The Fight for the Land

Ken Burns’ latest documentary, “The Vietnam War,” premieres in September 2017. But in the early 1960s, Omaha TV station KMTV aired a special on Vietnam called “The Fight for the Land,” before America's role escalated. Presented by Bevington & Johnson and the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company, the piece was produced and written by Bob Fuller, filmed and edited by Dave Hamer and directed by Jack Reilly.
