In the first installment of the series, BBC presenter Jonathan Dimbleby hones in on the effects of World War II on the then infant broadcasting corporation of BBC. World War II was the first broadcast war, which BBC was entirely unprepared for, so pioneers in broadcasting including Dimbleby's own father Richard Dimbleby broke through barriers and restrictions in order to communicate the truth, and renditions of the truth, to the British public and other global listeners. From author and playwright J.B. Priestley to United States correspondent Edward R. Murrow to Britain's very own Prime Minister Winston Churchill, the broadcasting medium took a new purpose through the course of the WWII conflict. Opponents to the BBC and Britain including Adolf Hitler himself and propaganda specialist Joseph Goebbels also utilized public broadcasting in new, advantageous ways, as Dimbleby chronicles.
