Frontline: The Choice (PBS)




Frontline: The Choice
 1988 | Frontline, Boston, Massachusetts, Time, Inc., New York, New York

The 1988 Peabody entries provided an extraordinary challenge to the Board as it selected the winners. There were many, many fine programs that brought viewers information of value and importance. None, however, seemed to succeed as well as FRONTLINE in covering the major candidates during the Presidential campaign. In a documentary special titled The Choice; the Frontline team, headed by the able David Fanning as executive producer, along with Sherry Jones, producer, and Garry Wills, author/writer, put together more than 150 background and 40 on-camera interviews with the candidates and with others. This was broadcast journalism at its finest and for this achievement a Peabody Award to FRONTLINE: The Choice.
