Korea: The Forgotten War in Colour (2010): S01E01 – Outbreak


This two-part program, presented back-to-back, offers a unique insight into a conflict that saw East confront West, communism challenge liberal democracy and Korean fight Korean in a bloody civil war. It features first-hand accounts and recently discovered original colour film to shed light on this historical event.


In the summer of 1950, the people of Korea were trapped between two new superpowers of the post-war world flexing their muscles – the United States and the Soviet Union. On 25 June 1950, the North Korean People’s Army invaded the South. For the next 12 months, the opposing forces of North and South marched up and down the Korean peninsula in a series of attacks and counterattacks until cease-fire negotiations began on 10 July 1951. But the negotiations did not bring an end to the conflict, and the war dragged on for another two years.
