A documentary about the Korean War by Thames Television that aired in the Summer of 1988 and in the US in August 1990 through WGBH Boston. Including interviews with participants from both the United Nations (USA, UK), South Korea and North Korea, the documentary was fraught with issues concerning content that might "offend" the American received wisdom concerning the war.
