Torrent description

TV : Documentary : TV quality : English
Originally aired: 2006.04.17

The documentary program itself runs about 57 minutes while the panel-style discussion runs for about 25 minutes. I have combined the two parts into one video to simplify their encoding and distribution. The following links cover the controversy generated by the discussion segment:

The Armenian Genocide

This is the story of the first genocide of the 20th century — when more than one million Armenians died at the hands of the Ottoman Turks during World War I. The powerful documentary features never-before-seen historical footage of the events and key players of one of the major untold stories of the 20th century. It is narrated by Julianna Margulies and includes historical narrations by Ed Harris, Natalie Portman, Laura Linney and Orlando Bloom, among others. Filmed in the United States, France, Germany, Belgium, Turkey and Syria, The Armenian Genocide features discussions with Kurdish and Turkish citizens in modern-day Turkey who speak openly about the stories told to them by their parents and grandparents. To this day, the Turkish government denies that the genocide occurred and maintains this position steadfastly. “As Turkey seeks to join the European Union, 90 years later, this film can give people a much better understanding of why this issue is such an important and current part of the international conversation about Turkey’s role in the world today,” says Andrew Goldberg, the program’s producer, director and writer.

Armenian Genocide: Exploring the Issues

Hosted by NPR’s Scott Simon, this 30-minute documentary chronicles the events that led to the deaths of more than one million Armenians during World War I. Its intent is not to “balance” the documentary but to further explore the question of how historians can come to such divergent conclusions about these events. As Scott Simon acknowledges in the follow-up discussion, bringing together these two sides is almost unprecedented. The program features four panelists: Taner Akcam, Ph.D. (visiting associate professor of history, University of Minnesota), Peter Balakian, Ph.D. (professor of the humanities, Colgate University), Justin McCarthy, Ph.D. (professor of history, University of Louisville) and Ömer Turan, Ph.D. (associate professor of history, Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey).
