Vietnam: The Real War
Pete Hamill, Peter Arnett and Kimberly Dozier
Thu, Feb 27, 8:15 pm ET
As Pete Hamill notes, “Say the word ‘Vietnam’ to most people of a certain age; the image that rises is usually a photograph--an A.P. photograph.” To cover the Vietnam War, the Associated Press gathered a group of superb photojournalists in Saigon, creating one of the most remarkable photographic legacies of the twentieth century.
Join the Great War correspondent Peter Arnett, veteran combat reporter Kimberly Dozier, author Pete Hamill and other guests to look at these images of the war that left so deep and lasting an impression on American life.
Robert Wagner with Liz Smith:
You Must Remember This
Tue, Mar 11, 8:15 pm ET
The legendary actor and bestselling author takes a nostalgic look back at Hollywood’s golden age— the mythic figures, the legendary stars, the houses and haunts of the elite. With a career spanning more than five decades, few actors are more qualified to recount this glamorous Hollywood era than Robert Wagner, the star of such films as A Kiss Before Dying, The Longest Day and The Pink Panther. Liz Smith calls herself “the 2000-year-old gossip columnist.” She has worked in celebrity/show biz for 57 years.
She now does commentary for Fox Entertainment News and still writes a daily syndicated column. She is co-founder of Wowowow.com and the women of Wow can now be heard on Sirius Radio.
Success in America
Amy Chua and Jed Rubenfeld
Mon, Apr 7, 8:00 pm ET
It may be taboo to say, but some groups in America do better than others. Mormons have recently risen to astonishing business success. Cubans in Miami climbed from poverty to prosperity in a generation. Nigerians earn doctorates at stunningly high rates.
Indian and Chinese Americans have much higher incomes than other Americans; Jews may have the highest of all. Husband-and-wife team Amy Chua (author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother) and Jed Rubenfeld—both Yale professors—discuss their new book, The Triple Package, and expose the three unlikely traits that explain the rise and fall of cultural groups in America, in a talk that could transform the way you think about success and achievement. (Originally broadcast on Feb. 4th)
The Story of the Jews
Wed, May 14, 8:00 pm ET
You may know some of the history of the Jews, but you haven’t heard it the way Simon Schama tells it–full of rich detail and a keen sense of how people really lived.
Schama’s The Story of the Jews: Finding the Words 1000 BC-1492 AD (a new book and television series, soon to air on PBS) takes us all over India, Spain, Oxford, Syria, Paris, Cairo and beyond to show how Jews everywhere lived not as a people apart, but as a vital force in any society they joined, inspiring and being inspired by everything around them. (Originally broadcast on Mar. 24th)
