NBC ran the series Victory At Sea in 1952 and 1953. The was was still fresh in the public's mind, and the series won an Emmy. It relied on film from the conflict, with narration Leonard Graves and a soundtrack by Richard Rodgers (of Rodgers and Hammerstein fame). This was from a time before people decided that Classical music couldn't be popular, and if it were popular then it couldn't be Classical music.
