Edward R Murrow (Old Time Radio)


On Netflix’s World War II in Colour ep3 Britain at Bay, there is a snall section on Edward R Murrow’s impact on shifting American public opinions into supporting Great Britain;

❝ … in particular the broadcasts by the CBS London correspondent Ed Murrow helped change public opinion … ❞

this created a bit of a discussion at the VP residence, and a search for the broadcasts began.

❝ Edward Roscoe Murrow, KBE (born Egbert Roscoe Murrow; April 25, 1908 – April 27, 1965) was an American broadcast journalist and war correspondent. He first gained prominence during World War II with a series of live radio broadcasts from Europe for the news division of CBS. During the war he recruited and worked closely with a team of war correspondents who came to be known as the Murrow Boys. ❞ [wikipedia]

Some of these broadcasts are still available to listen to;
