Winner 1980 | KCET-TV, Adrian Malone, Dr. Carl Sagan

When a group of specially talented individuals sits down to create a new and better way of explaining what our universe is all about it should not be a surprise if they turn out to be successful. Such a talented group from the outstanding Los Angeles public television station KCET; Adrian Malone, executive producer; and Dr. Carl Sagan, an internationally recognized scholar, produced Cosmos, an intriguing, exciting and exhilarating program that the Peabody Board deemed worthy of recognition. With funding from ARCO, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, this group of experts made Cosmos an instant success with those who look for real quality in television, and for this a Peabody Award.
