Thoroughly boring film if you ask me, but...

How did they get the shots of the TV footage to look so good? Wasn't this old interlaced footage? Why didn't it flicker? Did they actually dig up the original film it was shot on and show that?

During several instances the video cameras in the studio were actually on and transmitting a signal to the monitors in the control room while they were filming (thats why in certain shots of the televisions you can clearly see it is David Straithern and not the real Edward Murrow). The clips of Joseph McCarthy and the court hearings were all stock footage. Since they were shot on film, they would have no reason to flicker.

And I agree with your opinion. This is a very important, timely film that just didn't tell its story very well or with any emotion.
