Man Alive tonight hands over to an unusual film made by the National Film Board of Canada: Sad Song of Yellow Skin. The title is from a Vietnamese folk song with a sad and catchy tune.
The film is about a group of young Americans who try to live both as and among the Vietnamese in an attempt to undo some of the harm done by prolonged civil war. They introduce us to South Vietnamese people who come to life as individuals in a way that you rarely see in straight war reporting.
Sad Song of Yellow Skin won the Robert Flaherty Award for the best full-length documentary, 1971.

Yes, We Have No Bananas ...or much of anything else for that matter.
This was wartime London, a time when the scale of values was turned upside down and the ordinary things of life became suddenly precious. Rationing was the perfect system devised to ensure fair shares for all, but in its wisdom the government forgot to take the one measure necessary to make the whole thing work - to lock everyone up.
Charlie, a Cockney street-trader, and locals in an East End pub describe some of the fiddles that went on and the antics of that extinct, lovable rogue, The Spiv.
