This 1972 TV documentary series offers a personal view of the
history and development of the USA by esteemed Anglo-American
journalist Alistair Cooke, who died in 2004 at the age of 95 after
a long and illustrious broadcasting career. Combining
specially-shot and archive film with photographs, paintings and
sketches, the series starts with the colonial period, continues
through the revolutionary war and pioneer expansionist eras, looks
at the global conflicts and economic domination of the 20th
century, and concludes with a study of the social upheavals and
counter-culture revolutions of the 1960s and early 70s. The series
was born as a spin-off of Cooke's exceptionally long-running (58
years) radio slot, Letter From America.
