Summary:

Legendary journalist Edward R. Murrow is undoubtedly the first hero in the history of American broadcasting, a distinguished reporter who forever set the industry gold standard through his unparalleled courage, integrity and newsgathering excellence. From his electrifying WWII frontline coverage to his once-in-a-lifetime interviews with such prominent 20th century icons as John F. Kennedy, Louis Armstrong and Fidel Castro, Murrow truly understood the spellbinding beauty and power of the spoken word. Without question, television will forever be indebted to his unique contributions. THE EDWARD R. MURROW COLLECTION is a 4-DVD sets that chronicles and explores the groundbreaking career of this beloved commentator, hosted by some of Murrows celebrated disciples, including Walter Cronkite, Mike Wallace and Dan Rather. THE McCARTHY YEARS In a time when America lurched into a murky period of blacklists and witch-hunts for alleged Communists, this gripping program recounts how the incorruptible Murrow bravely and controversially challenged Senator Joseph McCarthys abuses of power.
