Murrow

£4.99

Product description

Ed Murrow is not only a part of the history of our times - he helped to create it. He became a national celebrity while still in his twenties, rapidly growing a reputation that he never lsot, as the greatest broadcaster since the invention of radio. On joining CBS in the mid-thirties, his reports from Vienna during the Anschluss were teh first to bring the horrors of the Nazi Party to the attention of the American public. The war years were Murrow's finest hours: his fearless broadcasts from London during teh Blitz were listened to by millions; he disregarded all advice and accompanied bombing raid over Berlin; his harrowing report about what he saw in Bunchenwald is legendary. A welcome guest in the White House and Downing street, he was never afraid to go against governments if he could see a more honest way forward. This search led to his dramatically influential attack on McCarthy, and later to the effective ending of his own broadcasting career by speaking out againsttelevision being used as a tool for commercially-obsessed rather than as an instrument for truth.
