The interview transcripts and film footage are of filmed or audio-taped interviews conducted by (or on behalf of) the producers. Most of the interviews took place in the United States or Vietnam. Portions of many of the interviews appeared in the television programs.
This series includes most of the transcripts from the 280 interviews conducted for Vietnam: A Television History. Among the interviewees are Vietnamese, U.S., French, and British veterans, policymakers, anti-war protesters, peasants, doctors, journalists, refugees, and military and government officials with viewpoints and experiences from all sides of the conflicts and wars in Vietnam from the 1930s through the 1970s.
List of interviewees
Also included in this series is the 280,000 feet of film footage of the interviews conducted for the television programs. There is also sound tape of all of the interviews. The collection here is of the outtakes, material not included in the series. Many of the interviews are available in video format in the Archives and Special Collections Department.
The WGBH Media Library and Archives, in collaboration with UMass Boston and Columbia University, has digitized all of the interview footage and transcripts and have re-created the complete interviews. They also have digitized the transcripts. The interviews and the transcripts are available on the WGBH Open Vault web site as the Vietnam Collection.
