Miles To Go Before We Sleep





 1979 | WTTW/Chicago Public Television

The American preoccupation with youth often lets us forget the certainty of growing old and the often cruel and thoughtless shunting aside of those who are not necessarily incapable of doing good work. WTTW/Chicago Public Television, in association with PBS, has documented in an extraordinary way the problems of all of us-for we are all aging. The presentation, funded by the Continental Bank of Chicago, was capably done, in the opinion of the Peabody Board, and deserves special recognition, especially for co-producers Ken Voss and Chuck Collins. A Peabody Award to WTTW/Chicago Public Television for Miles To Go Before We Sleep.
