Description
Program Description
"The fiftieth anniversary of D-Day was a celebration of what many claim to be the single most important day, even the turning point, of the twentieth century. We felt that this day had special significance for many of Louisiana's sons and daughters of French ancestry, the Cajuns. Many of her sons who landed on those beaches have stories to share of courage, strength, and determination mixed with a peculiar American naivet? that will soon be lost as many of that generation pass away. This documentary is a keepsake for the people of Louisiana. "Preparation for this documentary involved over eighteen months of research, including work with the National Archives, the gathering of film footage and pictures of Louisiana from the pre-war and wartime periods, and collaboration with military officials and workers in the Pentagon who helped us locate Louisiana veterans who were among the first to land in Normandy. "Our crew then traveled across Louisiana interviewing veterans in their hometowns to capture their experiences. Although all participated in the same event, their stories are as varied as their backgrounds. These and the stories of the Louisiana home front will [comprise] the first half hour of our show which was [prepared] prior to our departure and aired on June 6th across the state on LPB stations. "For the second half hour of the program, our cameras [focused] on these Louisiana veterans as they returned to France to rekindle old relationships and attend the ceremonies to commemorate D-Day. The second half of the program was completed and aired only 4 days after arrival home. The full hour of programing was aired that night and several times thereafter. Award-winning TV news anchor Bill Elder was our narrator."--1994 Peabody Awards entry form.
