Murrow the sequence and the series embrace the romantic notion of news reporting as a noble profession. Original, urgent, period news graphics were designed, animated and integrated with the archival footage which all lead to a dramatic and emotional transition into the present. Led by Will McAvoy, played by Jeff Daniels, the ensemble cast is introduced and credited in a series of clips and graphics showcasing the chaos leading up to getting a story on air.
