Assignment: India (NBC)
1955 | NBC Television
In the spring of 1955, NBC dispatched a supervisor and crew of cameramen to bring back the story of new India. Because of his understanding of life and progress in that country, Chester Bowles was invited to interpret and narrate the program, an important part of which was a conversation with Nehru. Assignment: India was first shown November 24, 1955. The acclaim was such that it was repeated on December 25. All who saw this program have a better understanding of a large and important part of the world and its relationship to the international situation generally. In recognition of this brilliantly done production, a Peabody Citation for contribution to international understanding is hereby presented.
