South Carolina World War II veteran Ted Bell's brutal three-day battle on Ishimi Ridge is the subject of a new ETV documentary, Man and Moment: Ted Bell and the Ridge, which airs Thursday, August 29 at 8:00 p.m. on ETV.  

This third installment of the Man and Moment series tells the story of Colonel Ted Bell, the most decorated WWII veteran from The Citadel.  During the war, Colonel Bell was assigned to lead his men in a near-suicidal attack on Ishimi Ridge. Of his 200 men, only 22 survived.   

In April, 2013, Colonel Bell returned to Japan for the first time since the war, this time with a film crew to record his journey back to the battle site.     

Bell, filmmaker Wade Sellers, and journalist and producer Jeff Wilkinson will also be guests on Walter Edgar's Journal, Friday, August 23 at noon on ETV Radio to discuss their documentary. 

Man and Moment is a production of the ETV Endowment, The State newspaper, and ETV, and is an extension of the documentary series South Carolinians in World War II.

South Carolina ETV is the state's public educational broadcasting network with 11 television and eight radio transmitters, and a multi-media educational system in more than 2,500 schools, colleges, businesses and government agencies.
