For more than a half-century Walter Cronkite delivered Americans their news with unwavering tenacity, dogged persistence, compassion, and insight. Cronkite describes his years of service covering stories that included the Kennedy and Martin Luther King assassinations; interviews with American soldiers in WWII and Vietnam; coverage of Watergate, the Beatles, Woodstock, and a multitude of profound world events. Illuminating a career that was nothing short of remarkable, he discusses how four decades of broadcasting had an extraordinary impact on his life. The incorporation of rare archival materials with the news anchor's commentary makes this performance an exciting history lesson and marks Cronkite as an orator as noteworthy as history itself.
