National Geographic Channel
Locked Up Abroad (Nat Geo Channel, 9pm) - As the longest POW in Vietnam history, Ernie Brace likely endured more
than any other POW during the war. Held for almost eight years, he faced
capture, starvation, sickness, torture, solitude and desperation.
three-and-a-half years, Brace was transported from the jungle to the
infamous prison in Vietnam dubbed the Hanoi Hilton, and finally heard
the voice of another American: Lt. Cmdr. John McCain, a Navy pilot shot
down over Hanoi.
