Summary Edward R. Murrow was America's greatest broadcaster. In Search of Light is both Murrow's permanent testament and a vivid public diary of a tumultuous era. It includes his reports from the rooftops of wartime London, an American troopship in the Atlantic, a bomb run to Berlin, the gates of Buchenwald, the wedding of Queen Elizabeth, the Korean War, the civil rights revolution, the launches of the first rocket probes; his portraits of the great (Churchill, Eisenhower, Stevenson) and the lesser-known but equally heroic; his famous See It Now telecast that helped bring about McCarthy's downfall. These graceful, witty, and courageous broadcasts have set the standard for every journalist in the past half-century.
