AMERICAN HISTORY THROUGH THE EYES OF RADIO
Through the magic of radio this unique collection of shows captures American History like no other medium can. From dramatizations of events prior to the formation of the United States and our fight for freedom from England through manifest destiny and our push to the Pacific Ocean. From live radio broadcasts of a date which will live in infamy to the resignation of a defeated and humiliated President and so much more. These shows will offer hours of entertainment bringing our early history alive and remind of us what it was like to be glued to our radios before we were glued to 24 hour news channels and instant access internet connections.
THE PACIFIC STORY
The Pacific Story was broadcast on NBC at 11:30pm, with the first broadcast on July 11, 1943.
The series lasted 184 weeks with two weeks pre-empted and ended on January 26, 1947. It was considered a documentary.
The premise of the show was that with Europe in ruins, the Pacific might emerge as the center of political and social change in the world, and people should know something about it.
The series touched on every nation around the Pacific rim and told of their importance in the years to come when the war ended.
It was narrated by Gayne Williams and featured such authorities on Pacific affairs as Henry Luce and Pearl S. Buck.
