Do you remember the old movies and how people talked about war, even when the nation was in the middle of one? Think about the end of Mrs. Miniver, when the minister in his sermon declares, "This is the Peoples' War! We are the fighters! Fight it, then, fight it with all that is in us!" My, how times have changed. As part of our coverage around the new Ken Burns documentary on World War Two, we'll take a look at how the media--both in the news and Hollywood--has represented war over the years. Join us Thursday morning at nine.

Guests

James Banks, historian and professor emeritus of history, Cuyahoga Community College
Evan Lieberman, professor of film studies, Cleveland State University
Mike Roberts, freelance journalist
