Remember Pearl Harbor

Air date: Wed., Dec. 7, 8:00 pm

 

Narrated by vactor Tom Selleck, this film chronicles the personal stories of veterans and citizens who witnessed the attack by the Japanese on the American Pacific Fleet on December 7, 1941, launching the United States into World War II. Using archival footage and photos and graphics, the documentary shows in detail the bombings on Oahu, along with the fiery explosion of the USS Arizona, the sinking of the USS Oklahoma and the attacks on Hickam Field. The film features first-person accounts from more than 35 WWII veterans and Hawai‘i residents. One of them was Barbara Kotinek, who was just six years old at the time and lived within eyesight of Pearl Harbor. The documentary also includes an interview with Mitsuo Fuchida, the Japanese pilot who coordinated the entire aerial attack.
