Masterpiece Special

The Unseen Alistair Cooke

Season 38, Episode 32 of 32

To mark the centenary of Alistair Cooke's birth in 2008, this documentary tells the story of one of the most celebrated broadcasters of the 20th century. While Cooke was widely known in the U.S. for his role as host of PBS "Masterpiece Theatre," he gave away very little about his personal life. But as this special presentation shows, his own story is as fascinating and surprising as anything in his reports. In this program newly-found home video footage dating back to 1933, with contributions from his family and friends, including Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard.
