The Quick and the Dead




The Quick and the Dead
 1950 | NBC Radio

To The Quick and the Dead, National Broadcasting Company, the George Foster Peabody Award for education in recognition of the success of this series in simplifying and dramatizing a difficult technical subject and in dwelling on the good as well as the evil that lies in the conquest of nuclear energy—with a special word of praise for William Laurence of The New York Times, who brought to this program a wide knowledge and long experience in popularizing science; for Bob Hope and the players who interpreted the drama of the atom bomb; and for William F. Brooks and Fred Friendly of NBC for their behind-the-scenes planning.
