At 8/7c, Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning 1998 film Saving Private Ryan, featuring a harrowing recreation of the D-Day landing, provides the prime-time centerpiece to a full day devoted to films and documentaries chronicling the historic event. Followed by the 1962 epic The Longest Day (11/10c), which enlisted many of Hollywood’s biggest names (Henry Fonda, Robert Mitchum, John Wayne, Richard Burton) to act alongside active-duty American and British soldiers as extras to depict the planning and execution of the 1944 invasion.
