Korea: The Forgotten War in Colour (2010): S01E02 – Stalemate


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.


While diplomats wrangled and negotiators argued, the fighting in the blighted Korean countryside continued. Stories emerged of atrocities committed by both sides. Amid allegations of retribution and reprisals, one of the major issues at the negotiations was the repatriation of prisoners of war. Eventually, a ceasefire was declared on 27 July 1953.
