These were the most exciting times in television history. This personal narrative - fascinating, difficult, ironic and funny - tells of an ordinary life filled with extraordinary moments. Emmy Award-winning CBS News producer Chalmers (Chum) Dale, examined and documented the human condition in over 300 shows. His work took him around the world, introducing him to many of the most distinguished citizens and celebrities of our time, from Martin Luther King Jr. to Bob Hope. This compelling memoir, written in an approachable, conversational style, also tells of Chum's lonely struggle in leading a double life: A search for a true sexual identity during adolescence, WW2 military service, a short teaching career, and a ten year marriage with two children. His existence begins to make sense when he meets his significant other of forty-two years and starts piecing his life together. Through these enduring experiences, Chum's story also explores the compassion and understanding he brought to his assignments at CBS - shows that 'made a difference' for millions of viewers.'LIFE CAN ONLY BE UNDERSTOODBACKWARDS:BUT IT MUST BE LIVEDFORWARDS'Soren Kierkegaard
