Robert Cromie and “Book Beat”
 1968 | WTTW-TV, Robert Cromie

The only national televised series of its kind, Robert Cromie’s Book Beat fills a neglected niche with taste, humor, unvarying high standards, and a sense of purposeful inquiry. Moreover, Mr. Cromie’s enthusiasm for books and authors is warmly contagious. In recognition, a Peabody Award for television education.
