(Studio) Vietnamese are a powerful force throughout Indochina.

(Nakhon Phanom, Thailand) Town clock donated by Ho Chi Minh in 1960 to thank Thais for taking care of few Vietnamese who fled here during French-Indochina war. Now there are 40,000 Vietnam's in this part of Thailand, most from North Vietnam, still loyal to Ho Chi Minh ideology. Vietnam run businesses, construction, etc. and this upsets Thais, who are more easy going. Thais say North Vietnam residents send money home to support war, provide Hanoi with intelligence on United States bases here. Thais try to control North Vietnam through schools where Thai and English language are taught. At night, however, children learn North Vietnam language and history. Parents tell them some day they'll return and help rebuild homeland.
