Special Collections

Stories of East and South East Asia

The Stories of East and Southeast Asia collection consists of historical documentary series and programs produced by WGBH producers and independent filmmakers producing for public television. The earliest programs were broadcast in 1970 but the bulk of the collection is from 1989 -2014. These programs allowed American public television viewers - in many cases, for the first time - to explore historical events and see visual images of life in the countries of China, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Tibet. The collection includes a wealth of original interviews, outtakes, and archival footage.
