The Tragedy of Bataan

Alec Baldwin narrates a special five part series produced by SIUC Associate Professor and local filmmaker Jan Thompson. The Tragedy of Bataan chronicles the fall of the Philippines and the beginning of the Bataan Death March as told through firsthand accounts of Bataan survivors.

I came across this five-part podcast series by way of the PRX Remix app. All five parts can be found here. Just a really fascinating look (in about a half hour total) at a little nugget of history. Great storytelling. It made me wonder how effective this would be as a teaching method.

And as I've said before, but if you dig radio/podcasts/storytelling, the PRX Remix app is the way to go.
