Hearing is Seeing®

AMERICAN RADIOWORKS® (ARW) is the national documentary unit of American Public Media* and produces hour-long documentaries distributed by American Public Media to public radio stations across the country. They also produce public radio news magazines like All Things Considered and Morning Edition .  Many of the documentaries are “living history”  by including accounts of those who lived it. All include background, original photography, interactive elements and streaming audio.

From the most current, War on Poverty: From the Great Society to the Great Recession (June 2010) to A Better Life: Creating the American Dream (May 2009) to Hearing America: A Century of Music on the Radio (December 2006), ARW covers history, politics and popular culture.
