About this product
- DescriptionSusan Cooke Kittredge's introduction offers rare insight into the life of her father, the man many knew as the voice of Letter from America and the host of CBS's Omnibus and PBS's Masterpiece Theatre. Here are the triumphs, disasters and vicissitudes of American life --from Korea, McCarthyism, the Civil Rights movement, JFK, the moon landings, Watergate, Nixon's resignation, Clinton's scandals, the attacks of 9/11, right up to the war with Iraq --as told by one of the century's most admired reporters.
- Author BiographyAlistair Cooke was born in England in 1908 and was educated at Yale, Harvard, and Cambridge. He was best known for his weekly BBC radio broadcast Letter from America, which reported on fifty-eight years of American life and totaled 2,869 broadcasts.
