Around Africa with Murrow

Ebbitt, David R.
May 1956
New Republic;5/28/56, Vol. 134 Issue 22, p22
This article focuses on Edward R. Murrow's two-part "Report From Africa" was an impressive demonstration of the high standard of journalism television can achieve if it ever sets its mind to it. Freedom was the theme, and the films which made up the show had been edited with that theme in mind. The "Report" moves on to Kenya, where, in one of the most fascinating sequences the author watched on television, former Mau Mau make their confessions and respond to the interrogation of a young white woman.
