NDO - A television documentary series entitled “Vietnam in the Ho Chi Minh Era - A Television History” will be aired on all national and local TV channels in Vietnam to mark the 90th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV).

The first episode of the 90-episode series, produced by film crews from various documentary production units, will be premiered on February 4 and the whole series is scheduled to be broadcast at prime time until February 2021.

The series, with each episode running for 25-30 minutes, is a detailed and systematic historical account of modern Vietnamese history from the CPV-led August Revolution, which gave birth to the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, to the present day.

The documentary affirms the role of the CPV and President Ho Chi Minh over the past several decades, thereby educating the audience on the country’s historical traditions, the CPV’s leadership and consistent policy, and the nation’s development in each period.

Nhan Dan’s Deputy Editor-in-Chief Dinh Nhu Hoan said at press conference on January 16 that the production of the television series is a large project, covering all aspects of the long historical period, with the filming conducted both in Vietnam and abroad.

The production also saw the advice of many historical, cultural, social and economic experts from leading agencies and institutes in Vietnam.

The series producers also worked with foreign archives centres in the United States, France, Russia and other countries in order to access and use valuable materials that will be shown for the first time to the Vietnamese audience.

Deputy Head of the Central Commission for Communication and Education Le Manh Hung announced that the documentary series will be aired at prime time on all TV channels in Vietnam without commercials being inserted during the showings.
