The event was attended by Politburo member and Permanent Vice Chairwoman of the National Assembly Tong Thi Phong; Politburo member, Secretary of Party Central Committee (PCC) and Head of the PCC’s Commission for Communication and Education Vo Van Thuong; and member of the Party Central Committee and Secretary of the Dien Bien provincial Party Committee Tran Van Son, along with many other leaders of the province, as well as hundreds of veterans who participated in the Dien Bien Phu campaign.
The programme helps audiences look back at the milestones of Dien Bien Phu from 65 years ago through a combination of current experiences and reminiscing on the past, art and analysis. The programme brought many emotions and impressions to the hearts of audiences as well as Dien Bien people, especially former Dien Bien soldiers.
For the first time, the programme created a historic rendezvous for Vietnamese and French, who meet through memories and connect with each other through the experiences of the present.
Through the stories in the programme, the generations of descendants, who have never gone through war, have an opportunity to understand the values of the nation and of peace.
