Goofs

Walter Cronkite makes note that his daughter Kathy played Patty Hearst in Network. This is not exactly correct, Kathy Cronkite actually played Mary Anne Gifford, a character very much like Hearst. See more »

Quotes

Host: [about President Reagan] In Reagan, what you saw was what you got. Without surrendering the dignity of the office he maintained that hail-fellow comradeship of the locker room. He was fun to be with, shady stories and all.

HE was there...
26 July 2009 | by warlok1See all my reviews

Amazing Series! I'm watching it right now and he's in to the 1960's...its amazing all the things this Reporter saw and did, the people he met and the events he covered. Walter Cronkite reminds us that a reporter is there to cover the 'first draft' of History...and thru both his memories and reports he gives a perspective on the 20th century. A great series to watch for both historical perspective and hints at 'behind the scenes' working of the changing news culture (Print, Radio, TV) of the 20th century.

Of special notice watch his World War II memories, its amazing to watch the war unfold in the eyes of a young reporter...here is the 20th century remembered by a man that witnessed great events. Learn from it.
