The Valient Years series was in re-runs on NBC in 1963. On the early afternoon of Friday, November 22, the show was interrupted by NBC newscaster Chet Huntley and then sustained mostly by Frank McGee to provide non-stop coverage of the Kennedy assassination. See more »
Television in the 1950s was full of WW2 documentaries. Growing up in that decade, I do not remember learning about most of the major events of that war for the first time--I saw so many of these documentaries that I always seemed to know them.
The Valiant Years was one of the last and one of the very best. I must have been 10 years old when it was broadcast in the US, but I have never forgotten it. Every few years, I check to see if it is available here or from the UK, but it never is, which is a great shame.
I wonder if it is even preserved somewhere in the original film format? Does anyone know? Does anyone know who owns the rights? I recall that it was a joint production of the BBC and ABC (American).
