Paced to the rhythm of a chopper’s blades preparing for take off, PBS takes a look back at the Vietnam War in this 30-second spot for a new 10-part documentary from Ken Burns and Lynn Novick coming this fall. The series both reminds us of the history of the war and the nationwide protests against it, and tells us a few things we never knew.
The Vietnam War premieres Sept. 17.
