A few years after the Allied victory, NBC television created Victory At Sea which cobbled together almost 13,000 hours of footage shot by the major combatant navies, including Japanese footage.
Narrated by Broadway star Leonard Graves, and set to a famous score by Richard Rodgers, Victory at Sea provided a firsthand look at every major naval engagement of the war via the new medium of television…AND HAS NOW MADE ITS WAY TO THIS DVD series!
It marked one of the first opportunities for average Americans to have such major world events beamed directly into their living rooms. It also marked one of the first attempts to use television to create a comprehensive, public record of such major happenings. Victory at Sea was considered so important and such a milestone both in broadcasting and the preservation of history that NBC ran the entire series without commercial interruption. The series won both an Emmy and a Peabody award for its excellence in public affairs programming.
Now, all 26 groundbreaking episodes of Victory at Sea have been lovingly restored, complete with new introductions for each episode. EVERY collector should add this to their collection.
