I know it=92s old, but it=92s certainly a classic: Harvest of Shame =
(1961) with
Edward R. Murrow.

=93Murrow's HARVEST OF SHAME is among the most famous television =
documentaries
of all time. Richly photographed and arrestingly poignant, this
long-acclaimed 1960 expos=E9 on the plight of migrant farm workers =
resonated
deeply for a nation unfamiliar with such brutally honest depictions of
living conditions that, as Murrow remarks, "wrong the dignity of man."
Murrow's indispensable classic led to permanent changes in the laws
protecting workers' rights.=20
