  • Through his impressive work as an ABC anchorman, Peter Jennings became one of America's most reliable and trustworthy newscasters. Originally from Canada, Jennings first showed an interest in broadcast journalism before he was even 10 years old. As a tribute to the late newsman (who died on lung cancer at the age of 67 on August 7th, 2005), THE PETER JENNINGS COLLECTION gathers six excellent examples of Jennings's globetrotting dedication and heartfelt reporting style. The Primetime Investigative Documentaries contained here show the reporter at work on several diverse news stories, from health pieces like "How to Get Fat Without Really Trying," which explores the growing problem of obesity in America, to "Guantanamo," a serious behind-the-scenes look inside the hotly debated U.S. prison camp. Next, "Ecstasy Rising" examines how the government has dealt with this popular illegal drug. Other pieces include "From the Tobacco Files," "LAPD," and "No Place to Hide." Whether reporting on issues of health, narcotics, police practices, war, or diminishing personal privacy in a post 9/11 world, Jennings always engaged the viewer by becoming deeply involved in the subject at hand. Despite being a fixture in most American living rooms, Jennings distinguished himself from his contemporaries by looking at breaking news from a slightly more global perspective. Each of the full-length documentaries featured here shows the legendary reporter at his best.
