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.

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 have been so wrapped up in our current problems that I'd forgotten what was going on in this country less than 100 years ago. From the dust bowl to civil rights; from the world wars to the McCarthy witch hunts in the early 50's. This documentary, done candidly and from a view point that is up close, is a treasure of real history.

I can only guess that the people not affected by watching it are too young to have had relatives who went through it.

This will be on my top shelf of DVD's.

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!

I've found this to be a wonderful documentary. I was born in 1961, and this certainly filled in the gaps of history in my mind...of course, from one man's perspective, but what an education!! Not many people have lived such an event filled life, and to be right there as things were happening in the world because of his job. I thought it was very interesting.

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.

I am not an American, nor have I directly lived the times and places of Walter Cronkite, but the Man and his face were unique throughout the world.

A Gentleman amongst journalists, a crooner, one of those rare examples of people, who do their homework before sitting or standing in front of a camera.
A man who risked his life going through the Hell of War, a man who knew the people he was talking about, a man who went deeper into the facts, in order
to report with accuracy the events of his times.

One can tell at a glance why this man became a true icon in not just American, but international television making.

It is so rewarding to see that someone still remembers people like Walter Cronkite, especially in a day and age, in which people don't even seem to remember who Neil Armstrong is and was.

I don't own this set as yet, but being by and about Walter Cronkite, can only mean true and lived history told by a man who knew what he was talking about.

He left a mark in his trade.

Alas, younger generations of journalists have decided not to follow in his footsteps, preferring just the glamorous sides of the News and the easier side of the trade, not to speak the monetary compensations that come with this kind of television products.

I can only wish that the future will see a younger generation of "crooners", following into the footsteps of this great man.
Working hard, researching with accuracy and being specific about what they report.

If wishes were horses...

I can recommend anything involving Walter Cronkite. His name is a Brand for quality and seriousness.

I, we, all miss him and other colleagues like him, who helped make Television a respectable and believable stage for serious News.

Bring back those days and turn them into a new age of Television making...

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.
