We Hold These Truths, a celebration of the 150th anniversary of the United States Bill of Rights, and shared 'American values.' Broadcast on all four major networks (CBS, NBC Red, NBC Blue, and Mutual). This episode aired live on December 15, 1941.
Written and producer, Norman Corwin, won a Peabody Award for the show, which commemorated the ratification of Bill of Rights on December 15, 1791. Pearl Harbor was attacked a week before on December 7, 1941 . Corwin asked if the program should still air following December 7th, the President's office replied, "The President thinks it's more important now than ever to proceed with the program."
