Artists perform during a programme titled La Co Doc Lap (Independence Flag) yesterday in Ha Noi and HCM City. The event was one of many celebrating the nation's 70th anniversary, which falls on September 2.
The 100-minute programme was a journey through the past, according to organisers. The audience was given the chance to meet witnesses of history and listen to their stories about war.
Reports recalling historic events were also told on air yesterday.
During the night hundreds of artists and student volunteers performed patriotic songs and dances. — VNS Photo Minh Duc
