Narrated by former CBS News anchorman Walter Cronkite, The McCarthy Years turns back the clock to the 1950s, a time when the country lurched into a murky period of blacklists and witch-hunts for alleged Communists, all led by a yound Senator named Joseph McCarthy. Revered for his bravery and incorruptibility, Murrow made a controversial series of broadcasts that challenged McCarthy's abuses of power, which-as this gripping program investigates-signaled the emergence of television news as a momentous and highly influential force in American life.

I found this outstanding as a history lesson, a reminder of how easily these ugly heads rise at any given time. The entire time period fascinates me. Don't bother if you're not interested in history & how the politics of this era are with us today.
