VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

NATS UP - Oh Freedom

AN EMOTIONAL RETURN TO VIETNAM... 40 YEARS AFTER JOAN BAEZ'S PEACE MISSION WAS INTERRUPTED BY THE REALITY OF WAR.

THE 72-YEAR-OLD SOCIAL ACTIVIST RECENTLY VISITED THE BUNKER WHERE SHE TOOK SHELTER DURING THE 1972 HANOI CHRISTMAS BOMBINGS.

UPON RETURNING, THE FOLK SINGER PUT HER HAND TO THE CEMENT WALL, CLOSED HER EYES... AND BEGAN TO SING.

SOUNDBITE: Joan Baez/Folk Singer

"You know, I'd tried to deal with it ahead of time before walking down there so I just kind of meditated on a little bit. What I felt was this huge warmth and it was a gratitude. I mean I thought I'd feel all the wretched things about the bunker. It was really love that it took care of me."

BAEZ FOUND SAFETY IN THE BUNKER UNDERNEATH HER GOVERNMENT-RUN HOTEL, WHILE AMERICAN B52S DROPPED BOMBS ON THE VIETNAMESE CAPITAL.

THIS FILE VIDEO FROM 1972 SHOWS BAEZ TOURING BOMB SITES IN HANOI.

SOUNDBITE: Joan Baez/Folk Singer (1972 INTERVIEW)

"hideousness that will take a while for me to absorb, coming out of there feelings were mixed with relief at leaving and terrible guilt of being a part of what's landing on those people's heads over there."

AFTER HER RETURN FROM VIETNAM, SHE RELEASED THE ALBUM "WHERE ARE YOU NOW, MY SON?"

IT INCLUDES RECORDING TAKEN FROM THE BUNKER, THE HOTEL WHERE SHE STAYED AND SOUNDS OF HANOI - INCLUDING AIR-RAID SIRENS AND BOMBS DROPPING.

BAEZ SAID SHE DECIDED TO RELIVE HER PAST AFTER SEEING MEDIA REPORTS THAT THE BUNKER HAD BEEN UNEARTHED.
