The images have been extracted from three documentary films whose copy and right-to-use licenses were bought from France. The three documentaries' names translate to "Vietnam", "Peace for Vietnam", and "Vietnam: Journey to Peace".

They depict the course of history from 1900 to 1973 in Vietnam, when the Paris Peace Accords was signed. The State Records Management and Archives Department and Vietnam Television are dubbing the films in Vietnamese so they can be broadcast in April and May.
