Big Story, The

Filmed on location in major U. S. cities, Burgess Meredith hosts these dramatic recreations of compelling stories behind yesterday's headlines from America's daily newspapers. Based on a popular radio series, each show tells a different reporter's gripping Big Story, a true-life incident, selected from newspapers across the United States.

Comments from the actual reporter open and close each show. The permanent narrator drives the plot line, and the show feature actors that dramatize the reporter's role.

A dynamic lead and vintage location shooting make this series timeless. The big stories are re-told with stars Ross Martin, Stewart Germain, Wright King and Victor Thorley. These headline stories remain fascinating, far past their deadline.
