In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Feb 12, 2015

The World War II radio program An American in England was written and directed by Norman Corwin and produced by Edward R. Murrow. 

Corwin auditioned several British actors for the role of narrator, but at the last minute he rejected them all and sent for American actor Joseph Julian to come to England to do the show.  Julian arrived via bomber, the day before the first broadcast.

The purpose of the series was to let America see what the British people were really like, through the eyes of an American.  The series ran for just six episodes on CBS, in the summer and fall of 1942. 

This episode first aired on September 7, 1942.
