Abstract:

"'The Investigators and the Law' is an examination of some of the controversial aspects of Congressional investigations through interviews with persons prominent on the investigative scene. Through presentation of a spectrum of viewpoints on investigations, an overall picture of their current status has emerged. Filmed highlights of past investigations are also included on the show."--1959 Peabody Digest. Reporter John Daly begins the program with historical overview of Congressional investigations, and discusses their descent into spectacle.

Includes footage of testimony by John Lawston of the Hollywood Ten, Howard Hughes, gambler George Costello, James Hoffa, and other witnesses testifying before congressional committees in the Army-McCarthy hearings, the Kefauver crime hearings, the McClellan Commission hearings, and other investigations. The second part of the program is a panel discussion in which reporters John Secondari, John Edwards, Bob Fleming and Charles Ashley interview Sen. Kefauver, Sen. McClellan, Edward Bennett Williams, Sen. Dirksen, Sen. Mundt and Robert Kennedy.
