Description
This program examines United States policy and role in South Vietnam in view of the several options the United States can take withdrawal, continued support of the South Vietnamese, extension of the war into North Vietnam, or neutralization of South Vietnam. These options are considered with respect to a series of more recent losses in South Vietnam and Viet Cong attacks within 15 miles of Saigon, and the assessment of the continuing crises by U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. Guests appearing on the program in the probing panel discussion will be David Halberstam, foreign correspondent for the New York Times, who has covered Southeast Asia extensively; Bernard Fall, professor of international relations at Howard University; Stanley Miller, associate professor of political science at Briarcliff; Neil Sheehan, United Press International correspondent in Saigon. The host is Ed Bayley, editor of public affairs programming, National Educational Television. Running Time: 28:55 (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
At Issue consists of 69 half-hour and hour-long episodes produced in 1963-1966 by NET, which were originally shot on videotape in black and white and color.
