AN AMERICAN IN ENGLAND was the story of Norman Corwin's visit to war-time England. As a radio series, it was a cooperative effort between the BBC and CBS. It documented war-time conditions in England from the perspective of the citizens of England, instead of those in power or of handouts from the war department. All shows of the series were written by Norman Corwin, produced by Edward R. Murrow and narrated by Joseph Julian. Ten shows aired under the AN AMERICAN IN ENGLAND banner, broadcast in 2 series. The first were 6 shows aired from August 3, 1942 through September 7, 1942. They were created in England and were broadcast via shortwave to the US as well as broadcast from US stations. The second series consisted of only 4 shows, produced in the US after Mr. Corwin's return, and aired December 1, 1942 through December 22, 1942.
