The half-hour episode was the first retrospective documentary on the wartime exclusion and incarceration experience.\n </p>\n <p>\n  <i>\n   The Twentieth Century\n  </i>\n  series ran for nine seasons on CBS, from 1957 to 1966. The half-hour documentaries covered a range of both historical and contemporary topics and was narrated by Walter Cronkite. Each season included twenty-six episodes; a total of 219 shows were produced in total. The Prudential insurance Company of America sponsored\n  <i>\n   The Twentieth Century\n  </i>\n  throughout its run, paying the full cost of production—the cost rose from around $21,000 per episode in the early seasons to $58,000 in the last season—as well as for commercial time. Prudential had approval power on show topics and, though it did not have editorial control over production, could opt not to sponsor specific shows after a preview screening. CBS also had close ties to the Department of Defense, which also approved topics. The result, according to Richard C. Bartone, who analyzed the show in a doctoral dissertation, \"was recognizable, uncomplicated, uncontroversial, and easily digestible history.\" The show drew eight to ten million weekly viewers and was popular with educators, who often assigned students to watch particular episodes. Prudential agents also screened the films at public meetings.\n  <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\">\n   <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">\n    [1]\n   </a>\n  </sup>\n </p>\n <p>\n  The show's producers considered a show on the Japanese American wartime saga in the early sixties, but serious work on the show began in 1964, with the idea of combining the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Nisei/\" title=\"Nisei\">\n   Nisei\n  </a>\n  soldiers story with the incarceration story. The show had an eleven month production timeline, and its writers met with\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Japanese_American_Citizens_League/\" title=\"Japanese American Citizens League\">\n   Japanese American Citizens League\n  </a>\n  leaders K.

In addition to Okura and Masaoka,\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Daniel_Inouye/\" title=\"Daniel Inouye\">\n   Daniel Inouye\n  </a>\n  , artist\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Min%C3%A9_Okubo/\" title=\"Miné Okubo\">\n   Miné Okubo\n  </a>\n  , legal scholar\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Eugene_Rostow_articles/\" title=\"Eugene Rostow articles\">\n   Eugene V. Rostow\n  </a>\n  , and General\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Mark_W._Clark/\" title=\"Mark W. Clark\">\n   Mark W. Clark\n  </a>\n  were interviewed for the film. Historical footage for the film came from newsreels, from private collections by\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Dave_Tatsuno/\" title=\"Dave Tatsuno\">\n   David Tatsuno\n  </a>\n  and Eiichi Sakauye and from the United Presbyterian Church, the latter including dramatic footage of Nisei soldiers visiting their families in concentration camps. In telling the story, the show was critical of wartime government leaders, the military, and the Supreme Court, which gave sponsor Prudential \"discomfort\"; though they agreed to sponsor the show, they requested that it not be rerun. The show was broadcast on January 3, 1965.\n </p>\n <p>\n  <i>\n   The Nisei: The Pride and the Shame\n  </i>\n  inspired the title of the 1970 exhibition\n  <i>\n   <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/Pride_and_Shame_(exhibition)/\" title=\"Pride and Shame (exhibition)\">\n    Pride and Shame\n   </a>\n  </i>\n  at the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle.
