Lessons of the Blood [electronic resource]: Unit 731 and the Legacy of Biological Warfare

This program explores the legacy of Unit 731, a research division of the Japanese Imperial Army that conducted human experimentation on Chinese civilians during World War II. Traveling to some of China's "rotten leg villages," the video features eloquent testimony from elderly survivors who still tend deeply ulcerated, unhealed wounds resulting from Unit 731's biological attacks. The documentary highlights efforts to bring the truth about Unit 731 to light, with activists accusing modern-day Japan of downplaying or denying the episode.

Waves of Liberty [electronic resource]

In this program the author of Sparks of Liberty: An Insider's Memoir of Radio Liberty reviews the origins, struggles, and eventual demise of the American radio station that broadcast directly to the Soviet people starting with the Cold War. Funded by the CIA, Radio Liberty's stated mission was to provide objective information about culture and current events to those without a free press, like its sister stations Radio Free Europe and Voice of America. Former employees discuss working at Radio Liberty's Spanish location - where it was moved to avoid Soviet jamming of transmissions - its content, and the logistics of conveying information in the pre-Internet age.

The Forgotten War [electronic resource]: Korean War Veterans Remember

Overshadowed by the wars that came before and after it, the Korean War has received little of the attention it rightly deserves, yet its legacy endures: armies still face each other across the demilitarized zone - and nuclear saber-rattling, this time coming from North Korea, is still a factor. In this ABC News program, correspondent Phil Ittner embeds himself with a group of veterans making a pilgrimage to Korea for the first time since they saw action there more than 50 years ago.

D-Day Revisited [electronic resource]

On D-Day, Allied troops stormed ashore at Normandy under withering fire. The stakes were high-and so were the losses. This special episode of Bill Moyers Journal accompanies a small group of World War II veterans back to the beachheads and battlefields of France to speak about their wartime experiences-some of them giving voice to memories they had held in silence for nearly half a century. Featuring excerpts from Bill Moyers' perennially popular documentary From D-Day to the Rhine, D-Day Revisited includes updates on the men originally interviewed in the film.
