Institutional Award: NBC and CBS
Winner 1965 | NBC, CBS
A trio of “special” one-hour TV shows in 1965 in which three of the most talented and popular of our time were given full scope to put on display their manifold talents share this year’s Peabody Award for top TV entertainment. Barbra Streisand, Frank Sinatra, and Julie Andrews—the latter ably abetted by another shining star, Gene Kelly—gave their all in programs that were beautifully planned and impeccably produced. They provided discerning television fans, short-changed in many directions during the past year, with three separate hours of unalloyed delight.
