    There was a recent "Foyle's War" airing that dealt with that subject. Latest episodes take place post-WWII.

    For those who watch Downton Abbey, in the trailer I spotted the actor who played Mr. Lang, Lord Grantham's shell-shocked valet from Season 2.

    eta And this morning the date for the world premiere of The Empty Hearse with q & a at the BFI has been announced as December 15. There's an episode synopsis on the BFI site. Not really a big spoiler, but just in case anyone's concerned:

    Did you miss part 1 of @AmExperiencePBS's JFK last night? Watch it online @ http://to.pbs.org/1fyniUs (Part 2 airs tonight @ 9/8c) #pbsJFK
    Really interesting documentary! I was just 9 years old when he became president, so I remember very little of these early days...fascinating story.

    I do remember that time.
    I thought that the program was very well done.

    If you can catch another re-run, I'd highly recommend it!
    I saw that one as a "live"-broadcast-in-movie-theatres when it was done, and loved it from beginning to end. It's one of my favourite Sondheims, and the cast was perfect. It was particularly fun to see actors who you don't normally associate with being singers (Colbert, Plimpton, and Hendricks in particular).

    I have it on DVD too. I didn't even know PBS had picked it up.

    Did anyone else see NOVA last night? Cold Case : JFK? Not only was it excellent, but it did something I thought impossible. They proved the Magic Bullet Theory, is no theory, and showed exactly how it could and did happen. Mom came out of our bathroom to the sight of me w/my mouth hanging open in sheer shock. When she asked what was wrong, all I could say was that I'd just had my World rocked!!

    If you are interested in this period of History, then you've got to see this thing.

    I saw it...fascinating forensics!

    After this special, I watched another...Secrets of the Dead...that examined how the news media in general, and Walter Cronkite in particular handled the news of Kennedy's death; also fascinating.

    We watched that too and was as equally excellent. Then again, Secrets of the Dead usually is, so...

    I've always liked Oklahoma and plan to watch. I confess, though, that I don't enjoy the ballet part. Not because I don't enjoy dance or ballet - I love ballet. This particular ballet seems too long and is a big interruption to the story. I wonder what they will do in this production.

    I've never been much of a fan of ballet in any musical theatre. It just doesn't work for me, and it always seems in interruption. The possible exception being Kiss Me Kate (movie version) -- and only then because of Fosse.

    When "Oklahoma" was created and came to Broadway - in 1943 - the ballet, created by Agnes de Mille; was considered a revolutionary way to advance the story through dance.
    It had never been done before.
