I can report that Ben Mankiewicz has been on location for TCM for the last two days, filming wraparounds for the May Spotlight on WWII Homefront and June Spotlight on WWII Combat, at The National WWII Museum in New Orleans. These series of programming are in commemoration of the 80th anniversary of the start of the war, and the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
