Big Town

Ever wonder what a newsroom sounds like and how newspaper stories develop? Big Town, where the daily Illustrated Press is printed, offers behind-the-scenes looks at the lives of reporters, editors and rolling presses. These episodes were created during the World War II era, when day-to-day reporting frequently made timely references to battles, spies and wartime life. As was common practice during this era, writers often took liberties when creating dramatic scenes and storylines in programs of this genre. Big Town gives insights to the war-era lifestyle and culture, but episodes may not always reflect historically accurate events or life in the news business.
