We've been really excited about this too. Jeff has a passion for learning about WWII, and that has rubbed off on me. This should be fantastic!
I set up a Title wishlist for "war", since the name of the series is "The War". When I did a search using the wishlist, a 30-minute preview show appears already.Sirius Black said:I wonder what the most effective wishlist criteria would be. Sometimes PBS doesn't have the most complete guide data.

According to the guide they will air weekly (Wed Night) episodes beginning Oct 3Marco said:Twelve days until Ken Burns' latest work premieres on PBS. I've been excited about this one for months!
What little advance press I've seen is highly complimentary so far.

Dunno, but I ain't waitin' that long.bullitt said:According to the guide they will air weekly (Wed Night) episodes beginning Oct 3
Is this correct?
Thanks for that link. I checked again this morning and my PBS (not sure about all of them) is repeating each episode twice within 24 hours of it's original airing: Once immediately after the original, and then again at 1PM the next day. So episode 1 will be on Sunday 9/23 at 8PM, then again at 10:30PM, then again on Monday 9/24 at 1PM. The Monday original airing follows the same pattern (not 100% sure about the Tuesday 9/25 episode since my guide doesn't go that far). That sure will make it nice for scheduling conflicts!Marco said:See the Viewer's Guide, link added in OP above.
thanks for the heads-up on this, I had never heard of it before!tgewin said:Sledge's story will also be featured in the upcoming HBO mini-series The Pacific War being produced by Hanks and Spielberg.
Sorry to threadjack a bit, but I have to correct myself and then add one giant "Oi vey!"... It's called The Pacific, not The Pacific War, as I had said before.Marco said:thanks for the heads-up on this, I had never heard of it before!
