One of those rare legendary figures who was as good as his myth." - Davis Halberstam, Author of
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 chronicles and explores the groundbreaking career of this beloved commentator, hosted by some of Murrow’s celebrated disciples, including Walter Cronkite, Mike Wallace and Dan Rather. This 4-DVD set includes:

THE BEST OF “SEE IT NOW” Watch impressive highlights from one of TV’s earliest and most revolutionary documentary series, as Murrow pays a visit to soldiers in the Korean War, tracks the civil rights movement in the South, and profiles Grandma Moses in her living room.
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 McCarthy’s abuses of power.
