Warsaw upraising on CNN in June 2004

A special documentary, reported by David Ensor, will air on CNN on Sunday, June 6, 2004, at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., and again on Saturday, June 12, 2004, at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. (E.T.).
See CNN's press release here:

Historical consultation by one of the best Polish historians Marek Chodakiewicz. By his personal experience in the production this might be the best piece ever produced about Warsaw Uprising.
The historian gave full details of this important Polish historic event which was frequently overlooked, particularly in America.
Lets hope that the producer took full advantage of such high professional help. This might be the most important for those of us who try to straighten up the historical record about Poland in World War II.
