This review is from: Alistair Cooke's America [DVD] (DVD)
As the previous reviewer has given such a comprehensive review, there's not much I can add other than having seen the series when it was first broadcast in 1973, I just had to buy this set - and I'm jolly glad I did! Cooke was the self-effacing master of his profession, and each episode is just so easy and so darned enjoyable to watch and so informative. I never knew history could be this interesting! I just wish we could see this sort of quality TV these days, but alas I fear we will never see such again.
If you enjoyed listening to Alistair Cooke's Letter From America when it was broadcast on BBC Radio 4, then just buy this set... you will NOT regret it!
