The lasting legacy from decades of war in RTD’s Vietnam documentaries
Almost five decades on from the end of the Vietnam War, the people of the country are still suffering the consequences. RTD’s Vietnam documentaries examine the lasting legacy of the American’s use of chemical weapons in the conflict. Agent Orange was used to kill vast tracts of jungle, and at the same time injured those who came in contact with it, and has been causing congenital disabilities ever since. The tragedy of the war is heightened by the social problems the loss of life and devastation caused. Vietnam has the highest abortion rate in Asia, and one man is trying to reduce the suffering of one child at a time.
