Sir Harold Evans?s latest book, They Made America--From the Steam Engine to the Search Engine: Two Centuries of Innovators, is the history of great entrepreneurs who took the United States from a rural society to an industrial power. During this discussion, Evans will focus on two pioneers of broadcasting, Edwin Armstrong, the genius who invented FM radio, and David Sarnoff, the tycoon who ran RCA and NBC.
Evans, the author of the critically acclaimed The American Century, will examine the struggles and legacies of these two very different men. They Made America has also been adapted into a four-part miniseries by WGBH, with Evans as executive editor.
