1812: The War We Forgot

Production of a two-hour television documentary on the War of 1812 that would explore the war from divergent points of view, including Canadian, Native American, and British perspectives, as well as the American perspective.

This is a request for $800,000 in outright funds for the production phase of 1812: The War We Forgot, a two-hour high definition documentary film on the War of 1812, a deeply significant event in our nation's history and culture that is largely forgotten today, even as we approach its 200th anniversary. No comprehensive film history of the War of 1812 has even been shown on Public Television, even though it had far-reaching consequences. 1812: The War We Forgot will provide a window into a period in history that the viewing public has seldom seen. It will explore this vital event from divergent points of view, including Canadian, Native American, and British perspectives, as well as the American perspective. Production will take place over an 18-month period, beginning in the summer/fall of 2008. The documentary is a co-production involving WNED-TV, WETA-TV, and Florentine Hilms/Hott Productions.
