Narrator Nan McNamara brings her enthusiastic storytelling skills to this illuminating examination of TV pioneers Gertrude Berg, Hazel Scott, Irna Phillips, and Betty White. Listeners are treated to a revelatory history of the transition from radio to television in the 1940s and '50s, including the devastating impact of the McCarthy era. McNamara is perfectly in tune with Armstrong's love of the medium and masterfully voices facts and figures. Those interested in TV history, the history of women as creative contributors, or what it must have been like to be an originator in the amazing new venture of television will find intriguing lessons heretofore lost.
