The name of the girl is Kim Phuc and she now works for UNESCO.  There was a book about her by Denise Chong, GIRL IN THE PICTURE, published by Viking Penguin in 1998, issued in paperback in 2001.  First Run/Icarus Films has a 1998 documentary on her: KIM'S STORY, directed by Shelley Saywell:

        Subject: vietnam documentary (napalm)



        A couple months ago, the local public station ran a documentary on the girl
        who was photographed running through the streets of Vietnam, her body
        ablaze from Napalm, now grown up with a family and residing in
        Canada.  Does anyone remember the title of the film and if it's out on
        video/DVD?

        Thanks,

        Johnson
