    hank you very much.

    These kinds of essays are the equivalent of the 1906's documentaries the then fledgeling television industry was producing. I worked on NBC's White Papers series for much of the decade, the Exex Producer was Wallace Westfield, the producer of the Huntley/Brinkley Nightly News Report.  The documentaries were diverse ranging through Khrushchev in America, (Lucy Jarvis, Producer), Civil Rights Nuclear Proliferation, Discrimination in the Navy, etc.

    We did half a dozen on FDR and I had the opportunity to research the library at Hype Park extensively for both photos and film.

    I also worked at CBS on the Black Heritage Series and for Martin Carr, a wonderful producer of the Hunger in America documentary, and the one on Migrant Workers..
