Andy Griffith: Master of Mayberry
Dr. Elliot Engel returns to discuss one of North Carolina's most famous citizens, Andy Griffith.

Professor Engel not only analyzes Andy’s astonishing early life which led to his television triumph, but he also reveals little-known fascinating facts about the show’s production and its enduring and endearing fame.
