The Peabody Awards

Institutional Award: BBC Radio




Institutional Award: BBC Radio
Winner 1992 | BBC Radio

For more than six decades, BBC Radio has been a source of information, education and entertainment for English-speaking audiences both in Britain and abroad. It is especially fitting that this award be made this year, in which the BBC World Service celebrates its 60th anniversary. During its deliberations, the Peabody Board noted the range, variety and breadth which characterize BBC Radio programming. From popular and light entertainment to sophisticated radio drama, from compelling coverage of breaking news to insightful analysis, the BBC remains a model for radio broadcasters worldwide. In making this award, it is hoped that commercial broadcasters in the west and a new generation of radio broadcasters in developing nations will follow the example of the BBC in using the full capabilities of the sound medium. To BBC Radio, an institutional Peabody Award.
