Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book, this program tells the story of two turbulent days in October, 1967. In Vietnam, a US battalion marched into a Viet Cong trap killing sixty one young men. Half a world away, a protest at the University of Wisconsin spiraled out of control. Told almost-entirely by the people who took part in the events, this film offers a window onto a moment that divided a nation and a war that continues to haunt us.

American Experience: Two Days in Octobe

Comments about PBS American Experience: Two Days in October DVD:

Perhaps the finest piece of journalism I have ever seen, this story follows the events -- within 36-hours of each other -- one event in Viet Nam, the other at the University of Wisconsin on the Madison campus. It has to do with a serious engagement, on the battle field, by American troops and, subsequent events -- back home -- on the campus in Madison,perhapsthe first anti-Viet Nam sit-in that remains troublesome even to this day. It is a "must see" for all baby boomers and students of American history.

2 days in October - moving and poignant

Comments about PBS American Experience: Two Days in October DVD:

American Experience comes through with another of the documentaries that cause me to love this series. As a teenager in the late 60's and early 70's I protested the war. This documentary reminded me of the reasons why, and the difficulties that we face even today, with entrenched and ignorant viewpoints. How the police officers could continue to justify using violence on unarmed students was jaw-dropping. But most moving were the testimonies of those connected to the ill fated soldiers who were guided by higher ups who lived for their own glory and not the safety of their men.
Beautifully done, in the manner of Band of Brothers, it shows a true picture of all who participated in both events.
