Newseum’s ‘Reporting Vietnam’: New Exhibit of Powerful Photos & News Footage for the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War: May 22, 2015 – Sept. 12, 2016

Tue May 19, 2015

The following video presents Documentary Video: The Napalm Girl:

40 years ago we met The Napalm Girl. The iconic photo woke the world up to the brutal reality of collateral damage. We traveled to Vietnam-to the very spot where history was made-to produce The Power of a Picture for ABC7, Los Angeles.

All the key players were interviewed…the little girl-Kim Phuc, the photographer-Nick Ut, the reporter-Christopher Wain, Vietnam vets…we’re extremely proud of this news-doc. Four decades later, the photo and the girl are as powerful as ever.

Here’s the first part of the critically-acclaimed TV special. Winner of the 2013 Edward R Murrow Award.

Witness: The Power of a Picture
Originally aired 6/2/12 on ABC7, Los Angeles
Produced by David Ono & Jeff MacIntyre

The exhibit explores the dramatic stories of how journalists brought news about the war to a divided nation. It will be on display through Sept. 12, 2016….

More than 90 compelling artifacts, historic newspapers and magazines will take visitors back to experience a time when America was at war and young people were rejecting the conservative values of their parents.
