TV: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE – Monday, 9pm – “My Lai” – This incisive documentary recalls the massacre of some 500 unarmed men, women and children by U.S. troops in 1968 Vietnam, detailing the events that led to the tragedy and the barbarity of the slaughter itself.

TV: FRONTLINE – Tuesday, 9pm – “The Vaccine War” – The controversy surrounding the vaccine regimen that young children face is examined. Although scientists and public-health officials say the many recommended inoculations are safe, a coalition of activists, parents and others say otherwise.

TV: OUR TOWN: JOHNSTOWN 2010 – Thursday, 8pm – 11 years after the “Our Town” project visited “The Flood City,” an all-new production looks at the city once again through the lenses of the residents.
