WE'LL MEET AGAIN
January 23, 2018  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: The song “We’ll Meet Again,” popularized by British singer Vera Lynn when it was released at the start of her nation’s involvement in what would become WWII, has since been utilized to conclude two of the best pieces of entertainment ever made: Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 film, Dr. Strangelove…or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, and Dennis Potter’s 1986 TV miniseries, The Singing Detective. (“We’ll meet again / Don’t know where, don’t know when…”). Now it’s used as a title of a new PBS documentary series, presented by former Today personality Ann Curry, who reunites and interviews people who met at pivotal times in history. The subject of tonight’s opening hour, fittingly, is WWII itself. For a full story, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower. Check local listings.
