When Hell was in Session

NBC-TV, Aubrey/Hamner Productions

Few Americans seem to care to be reminded about the war in Vietnam but few Americans can forget what went on there. The NBC Theater presentation of When Hell Was In Session, produced by Aubrey/Hamner Productions, etched a portion of that war into the memory cells of every viewer. Hal Holbrook and Eva Marie Saint made this wrenching account of the real-life experience of a P.O.W. something to be long-remembered. A Peabody Award to NBC-TV for When Hell Was In Session.
