She’s Nobody’s Baby: The History of American Women in the 20th Century





 1981 | Home Box Office, Ms. Magazine

This award constitutes a significant first in the history of the Peabody Awards. Recognizing the changing pattern of distribution of aural and visual images into American homes, the Peabody Board has chosen to recognize first the significant contributions of Home Box Office and Ms. Magazine for She’s Nobody’s Baby: The History of American Women in the 20th Century. Cable has had a significant impact on American life and Home Box Office has had a significant impact upon cable. In the opinion of the Peabody Board this program, narrated by Alan Alda and Marlo Thomas, used newsreel footage, cartoons and music to create a magnificent and truly outstanding tribute to the forward movement of American women. In so doing it has become a tribute to HBO and to the entire American cable industry. For excellence in programming, distributed by a means of unknown and unforeseen at the time of the inception of the Peabody Awards, the Peabody Board awards this honor to Home Box Office and Ms. Magazine for She’s Nobody’s Baby: The History of American Women in the 20th Century.
