Kennedy Louis Armstrong and Fidel Castro Murrow truly understood the spellbinding beauty and power of the spoken word and television would forever be indebted to his unique contributions. Presented by Dan Rather Murrow's HARVEST OF SHAME is among the most famous television documentaries of all time.
