Anne of Green Gables




Anne of Green Gables
Winner 1986 | WQED/Pittsburgh

The story is at once clever and poignant-an elderly couple wishes to adopt an orphan, a strong boy who can help around the farm. But, who should arrive other than Anne Shirley, freckle-faced, red-haired, and handsomely homely. And, definitely, a girl. This is a story about disappointment and achievement, expectation and reward, but mostly it is a moving production. The Peabody Board salutes all who had a part in this outstanding program and presents an award to WQED-TV as a representative of all those who made Anne of Green Gables possible.
