“Human Adventure” for Outstanding Educational Program





 1944 | Mutual Broadcasting System

Outstanding Educational Program: For the outstanding educational program, the award goes to Human Adventure, a series of programs presented by the University of Chicago. Human Adventure explores in a dramatic form subjects as highbrow as The Origin of the Earth, Penicillin, The Wonder Drug, and even The Einstein Theory of Relativity. Such Human Adventure might have been profoundly dull; instead, it was made clear and knowledgeable. So, to Human Adventure a Peabody Award and to the radio industry, a plea for more such programs.
