It was the second major network documentary on the wartime removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans after\n  <i>\n   <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/The_Nisei:_The_Pride_and_the_Shame_(film)/\" title=\"The Nisei: The Pride and the Shame (film)\">\n    The Nisei: The Pride and the Shame\n   </a>\n   ,\n  </i>\n  which aired on CBS in 1965.\n </p>\n <p>\n  <i>\n   Guilty by Reason of Race\n  </i>\n  was produced and reported by veteran producer Robert Northshield and incorporated historic footage and photographs with contemporary interviews with Japanese Americans as well as those who advocated for incarceration at the time to tell the story of Japanese American removal from the West Coast and their subsequent confinement in concentration camps. Several former inmates are filmed visiting the places where they had been incarcerated, including Amy Uno Ishii, J. H. Takeda, and  Betty Kozasa visiting\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Santa_Anita_(detention_facility)/\" title=\"Santa Anita (detention facility)\">\n   Santa Anita\n  </a>\n  and activist\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Edison_Uno/\" title=\"Edison Uno\">\n   Edison Uno\n  </a>\n  (who was an adviser to the film's producers) at\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Amache_(Granada)/\" title=\"Amache (Granada)\">\n   Amache\n  </a>\n  . It is also notable for including an interview in Tokyo with renunciant Masao Amachi, who recalled that he had \"lost confidence\" in the U.S. and felt that no matter who won the war, that he \"would always be looked at as a Jap.\" The documentary also includes footage from a\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Camp_pilgrimages/\" title=\"Camp pilgrimages\">\n   Manzanar Pilgrimage\n  </a>\n  and from the contemporaneous exhibitions,\n  <i>\n   <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/Executive_Order_9066_(exhibition)/\" title=\"Executive Order 9066 (exhibition)\">\n    Executive Order 9066\n   </a>\n  </i>\n  and\n  <i>\n   <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/Months_of_Waiting,_1942-1945_(exhibition)/\" title=\"Months of Waiting, 1942-1945 (exhibition)\">\n    Months of Waiting, 1942–1945\n   </a>\n   .\n  </i>\n  The documentary ends with interviews noting the impact of incarceration and raising the question of whether it can happen again; it concludes that \"there is no reason why it couldn't.\"\n </p>\n <p>\n  Interviews in order of appearance\n </p>\n <table class=\"wikitable\">\n  <tbody>\n   <tr>\n    <th>\n     Interviewee\n    </th>\n    <th>\n     Description\n    </th>\n   </tr>\n   <tr>\n    <td>\n     Miyuki Hirano\n    </td>\n    <td>\n     former inmate; girl with luggage tag in iconic\n     <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Dorothea_Lange/\" title=\"Dorothea Lange\">\n      Dorothea Lange\n     </a>\n     photograph\n    </td>\n   </tr>\n   <tr>\n    <td>\n     <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Tom_C._Clark/\" title=\"Tom C.
