 see it now
see it now 2
 The premier of “See It Now” was on this date in 1951. The TV
news magazine and documentary was created and hosted by
veteran newsman Edward R. Murrow. It aired weekly on CBS
from 1951 to 1958. The series won four Emmy Awards and
was nominated for three. It  also won a Peabody Award.

Murrow’s show focused on controversial issues in the 1950’s,
but was best remembered for it’s segment on Senator Joseph
McCarthy. This probe of the McCarthy-led anti-communist era
is the focus of the 2005 film…good night, and good luck.

GOOD NIGTH, AND GOOD LUCK.
