Marking the November centenary of the birth of longtime MASTERPIECE THEATRE host Alistair Cooke, "The Unseen Alistair Cooke" is a revealing portrait of one of the most celebrated broadcasters of the 20th century. Seen for the first time are extraordinary 8mm home movies shot by Cooke from 1933 onwards charting his discovery of America, his passions, and his relationships with stars such as Paulette Goddard and Charlie Chaplin. Told in his own voice and in interviews with family and close friends — including MASTERPIECE executive producer Rebecca Eaton — the program is a chance to see America as Cooke first saw it: the raw material for a lifetime of journalism.
