Walter Cronkite Remembers - A Remarkable Century - 3 DVD Collector's Embossed Tin! Relive what happened during this last century, as America's most trusted newsman shares his personal eyewitness experiences and insights gained from his front row seat to the 20th Century. Experience the gripping scenes caught by camera and broadcast to the world. Some of the events covered in this award-winning six hour documentary include: The Great Depression, the rise of organized crime, World War I, World War II, The Cold War, the raising of the Iron Curtain, the fall of the Berlin Wall, civil rights, women's rights, the race for space, a man on the moon, a president assassinated, a president resigning. Plus, we learn about a country called Vietnam, missiles in October and a place called the Bay of Pigs. This revealing program features never-before broadcast home movies and still photos from the Cronkite family, plus rare historic film, newsreel clips and photos from CBS News Archives, the Library of Congress, the National Archives, United Press and AP Photo, among dozens of other national, university, state, city and private archives. But good or bad times, we have made it through and one man has been there all along: Walter Cronkite.

The tin box-packaging is fitting: this is an unusual memento of the 20th century, made more poignant by the recent passing of the wonderful host, Walter Cronkite.

If you are a history buff, you will love Cronkite's retrospective as he traces the events of the century that he lived through and reported on (complete with his own personal reflections and memories of historic events--from World War I to the landing on the moon.)

This is a reminder of what the world used to be--AND what good broadcast journalism used to be.

We may not miss the past, but we all are less for the loss of Cronkite. Get this dvd set and share history--and knowledge of a great journalist--with your children. Let them see what broadcast radio and television was like before the days of Beck and Limbaugh and Hannity and O'Reilly.

They will thank you.

I had watched all of the episodes on TV and was absolutely overwhelmed by the depth of Cronkite's involvement in history. He didn't just report it...he lived it. He was my favorite newscaster for all of the years that he was on TV, but I had no concept of his background. I bought one for myself and one each for my 30-something son and daughter (as Christmas gifts). As a history buff, I know of no better way to provide a valuable history lesson. Unfortunately, we will not see this type of hands-on newscasting again. Our nation's loss!

This is as satisfying as comfort food! Arm chair history in video/1st hand knowledge, all in one. Now that he is gone you will realize how "news" coverage has disintegrated.

This DVD is a must own for History lovers. Walter Cronkite cronicles his lifetime of history and career. His reporting is so insightful and includes actual footage of events. The review helped me to understand the flow of life's patterns through my parents lives and most of mine. It is an important set to have in anyone's library.

Item ordered arrived when specified and in good condition. I chose this as a gift and had to use two day mail. It is always nice not to be disappointed and I am never disappointed with Amazon's service.

Walter Cronkite had a journalism career like none other. How much history one man reported on is astounding! I was glued to my seat, as each episode played through, to see how much one man experienced. how he worked with the technology of the time to get out the news was entertaining to see. His type of honest journalism is now lost in today's obvious bias reporting in the media. He carries himself with integrety and character that is also lost today. A true gentleman and statesman.

This is an excellent review of history over the course of Cronkite's life. It covers the major events with him offering personal insite and comments. I purchased it for my dad who is 81 years old. This period of history basically mirrors his life and he really enjoyed it.
