On December 15, 1950, a new kind of radio program took to the CBS airwaves, a program borrowed from the format of a series of records released in 1948; a program whose importance is less its own longevity, but more for the experience and experimentation it gave the producers, Edward R. Murrow and Fred Friendly. Less than a year later, these two would take this program to the CBS Television Network, where the show renamed See It Now became part of both television history and folklore. (The younger generation was introduced to that program and its staff through the film, Good Night, and Good Luck.)
In listening to this particular program, the first in the series, I am struck by how little things have really changed within my lifetime. Many of the conversations the country was involved in then still resonate with us today. Great quality audio CD.
