Summary
For 20 years one of the largest radio networks has been broadcasting news, information, music, sports, and dramatic programs to an estimated audience of 20 million, yet it has never been heard in the United States. This entertaining and informative episode of The Big Picture series gives viewers an inside look at The American Forces Network (AFN), which has served the military community in Europe since it began broadcasting from a basement studio in London, England, on July 4, 1943. Produced by the U.S. Army and featuring footage by the National Archives and Records Administration, this episode was filmed in Frankfurt, Berlin, Munich, and Orleans, France
