Synopsis

Norman Corwin has long been known as 'Radio's Poet Laureate'. During Corwin's travels to 17 countries in 1946, he kept a journal of his personal thoughts and observations. It was put in a drawer where it remained for decades. More than sixty years after the trip, media historian Michael Keith asked Corwin - who is now in his nineties - if he had kept a log or journal of his One World travels. He had, and his analysis of international communications still rings true today.
