here is probably the most authoritative, unbiased, stirring collection of historical events on television. cronkite especially provides an unquestioning level of reportage. from world war I to the assassinations of the kennedys and martin luther king, this series renders history into a forceful, contemporary chronicle of events. there should be college credit awarded to those who have viewed every episode and pass an examination based on the contents of this series. beyond the historical aspect of understanding our world and the events that shaped it, there is the "uncle walter" image of one who has experienced much of what he is reporting and the impact on him personally. cronkite is perhaps the most-trusted, well-known tv journalist, next to edward r. murrow and hs two series, "hear it now" and "see it now". no other series which spotlights history as documentary material comes close to what this program has achieved, and no one could make it as worthwhile as "uncle walter" cronkite.
