Journalist and broadcaster Ed R Murrow's campaigns were many and fair-handed but he is still best known for This Is London, his World War II radio show and his fight to stop the red scare that gripped the US in the 1950s courtesy of Senators McCarthy and Cohn. It is the latter period that director Clooney chooses to concentrate on in his modest second feature. For CBS, Murrow, Friendly and the entire staff of the current affairs show See It Now the cost was huge, but the dividends were greater. If you care 'that good news cannot come from bad practice', then this will send tingles down your spine.
