CBS Reports,The Harvest of Shame
Winner 1960 | CBS Television

As Peabody recognizes CBS Reports, this award cites, in particular, The Harvest Of Shame; commends David Lowe as producer of this unflinching account of how the migrant worker lives in America, and Fred Friendly, executive producer of the CBS Reports series; and carries a special citation to William S. Paley, Chairman of the Board of the Columbia Broadcasting System, for his valor and vision in espousing the cause of public enlightenment by underwriting these documentary studies of the world of reality and airing them in the face of formidable opposition from the competing world of unreality.
