The first volume in The March of Time video series March of Time: Post-War Problems, Vol. 1 features an array of archival newsreel footage concerning Americans recovering from World War II. Included are clips and stories covering postwar planning for jobs and employment, new discoveries in farming, the problems facing servicemen and their families as soldiers return to civilian life, the rise in alcoholism, the housing shortage, and the American cop. Gleaned from nearly two decades of newsreels produced by Time Magazine during the years 1935-1951, the monumental The March of Time videotape series features the "pictorial journalism" that informed, educated and entertained millions of Americans for over a decade, and won two Academy Awards as well. The newsreels from which this series was created were originally produced by Louis de Rochmont and are narrated by Westbrook Van Voorhis, who was for many Americans of the time "the voice of the news."
