Siberia: A Day in Irkutsk





 1966 | NBC Television

Persistence and journalistic enterprise were rewarded when NBC News obtained permission from the Soviet authorities to film an hour-long program in the city of Irkutsk, in Siberia, the remote heartland of the USSR. The universality of man’s objectives and problems were affirmed by this comprehensive and intimate view of the life of the people of the Soviet frontier. This program merits a Peabody International Understanding Award.
