Update on The War

Fighting through it:  Ken Burns' The War makes peaceKen Burns' The War will grow by about a half-hour to appease critics who objected to its virtual exclusion of Hispanic veterans. Public television's franchise filmmaker met with TV writers Wednesday to both tout the seven-part documentary and explain what's being added to it.

"We've done more than we were asked or expected to," he said of extra footage that will run during the closing credits of episodes one, five and six. It mainly consists of interviews with two Hispanic World War II survivors and one Native American.
Comment:  This may mean the Native interview will be attached to episode 6. That makes more sense than splitting one interview among three segments.
