The Last Word
1957 | CBS Television
A program concerned with words, their meaning, and their use is educational. It is also literary. In the case of The Last Word, it is entertainment and public service—made so by the wit, charm, and erudition of Bergen Evans, John Mason Brown, and their distinguished guest panelists. This sparkling weekly discussion of words, the basis of all understanding and progress, makes it clear that learning can be fun, and that educational programs do not have to be dull. The Last Word has, therefore, rendered the kind of meritorious public service for which the Peabody Awards came into being—and richly deserves the recognition.
