Walter Cronkite hosted the reenactments of historical events. Shows included "The Landing of the Hindenburg", "The Salem Witchcraft Trials", "The Gettysburg Address", "The Fall of Troy", and "The Scuttling of the Graf Spee".
Your profile of "20th Century" does not ring true. It was long off the air when Robert Kenedy and Dr. King were assassinated. It also was gone when JFK was assassinated as well. While a truly remarkable program, featuring a remarkable man as host, your comments fail in valuing its place in TV history, and its general import to our history and culture. Walter Cronkite's contribution to our country is an outstanding one. Beginning as a war correspondent during WW11 through his reportage of our post war history, his contribution is exemplary. I can still see his face and hear his words when he reported JFK"s assassination, and Armstrong's walk on the moon. His television journalism is the standard by which all others should be measured.
