PBS to air Bataan anniversary program

-A A +A

On Dec. 15, 2011, honoring the 70th anniversary of the fall of Bataan (April 2012) and the subsequent death march, Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) proposed legislation to grant the Congressional Gold Medal to the troops who defended Bataan during World War II.
The next day, Congressman Martin Heinrich (D-NM) proposed similar legislation in the House of Representatives — H.R. 3712.
One inspiration for this action was the documentary, “Tragedy of Bataan.” As an adjunct to “Tragedy of Bataan.” New Mexico PBS has produced a half-hour program with some of the survivors of the surrender of Bataan.   
In conjunction with the anniversary week of the fall of Bataan, New Mexico PBS presents a new, hour-long program, “Bataan: A 70th Anniversary Commemoration,” premiering at 7 p.m. April 12 and repeating at 5 p.m. April 15.  
New Mexico PBS, in cooperation with Jan Thompson, produced “Bataan: A 70th Anniversary Commemoration.”
The National Education Telecommunications Association will distribute the program nationally to member PBS stations in May, with a suggested broadcast on May 28.
Just hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor, New Mexico’s 200th Coast Artillery (anti-aircraft) was the “first to fire” on the enemy.
