Description

In this clip from "A Second Look, A Medley of Voices," Bill Moyers speaks to Dame Rebecca West, who President Harry Truman once called the world's greatest reporter. Dame West recalls trying -- and failing -- to get a journalism job in her youth. She also shares an interesting story about how Felix Mendelssohn's sister composed music, but was unable take credit for the work. In 1989, PBS aired "A Second Look," a series of 14 episodes reflecting some of Bill Moyers's best work to date.
