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 and television would forever be indebted to his unique contributions. Presented by Dan Rather Murrow's HARVEST OF SHAME is among the most famous television documentaries of all time. Richly photographed and arrestingly poignant this long-acclaimed 1960 expose on the plight of migrant farm workers resonated deeply for a nation unfamiliar with such brutally honest depictions of living conditions that as Murrow remarks "wrong the dignity of man." Smartly televised to millions of Americans the day after Thanksgiving to better tap into their emotions Murrow's indispensable classic led to permanent changes in the laws protecting workers' rights.
