Buffalo Soldiers: Fighting on Two Fronts

PBS America: Monday 27 November at 20:20

African Americans have a long and honourable history of serving with America’s armed forces, participating in both World Wars and many other conflicts across the globe. Yet at home they faced discrimination and a lack of civil rights.

Their involvement in many of their country’s military campaigns is not without its contradictions. As American soldiers under orders, they would also play a part in the subjugation of Indigenous peoples as the US appropriated tribal land; the persecution of striking silver miners in Idaho, and the fight against Filipinos seeking for independence in the Spanish-American War.

Drawing upon the testimony of historians, experts and descendants, along with archive material, re-enactments and animation, this documentary tells the complex story of the so- called ‘Buffalo Soldiers’.

What the industry says about US

TT Spektra, Sweden

We use both the Global Listings press schedules (in Word) and their XML files. The programme descriptions are rather good and not too long, which is helpful. We use their text verbatim and import it direct into our database.

NBC Universal Global Networks, Central and Eastern Europe

We have worked with Global Listings on the launch of new channels into Central and Eastern Europe and have been very impressed with the standard of service, prompt responses to schedule amendments and proactivity in getting schedule and highlights information in plenty of time, as well as the delivery of our EPG content.
