George Ferencz presents “The Making of NBC-TV’s Victory at Sea

In 1952–53, NBC brought World War II into America’s homes. Victory at Sea’s 26 episodes, with their vivid musical score and footage sourced from 14 warring nations, took viewers into every theater of the war. Prepared with the assistance of the US Navy, Victory at Sea would eventually be syndicated in 40 countries and gain a huge new audience in the age of home video. Please join George Ferencz to hear the behind-the-scenes story of NBC’s prize-winning WWII documentary series. 

Lunchbox Lectures are free and open to the public. For more information, call 504-528-1944 x 484.
