The Big Picture is an American documentary television program which aired on ABC-TV from 1951 to 1964. The series consisted of documentary films produced by the United States Army Signal Corps Army Pictorial Service, showing weaponry, battles, and biographies of famous soldiers.
This is the story of General Omar N. Bradley, the man of quiet dignity yet with a punch that packed a terrific wallop. Here on film is a pictorial history of an Army general who smashed ahead with a force of almost a million and a quarter men. A military leader's achievements are usually measured in terms of battles won. In the case of Omar Bradley, General of the Army, the scope broadens. His achievements are evaluated in the winning of a great war and laying the foundations for world peace. This is the first of several film presentations being planned for the Army's television series, THE BIG PICTURE, that will focus on the lives of outstanding general officers in current history.
