Winner 1981 | ABC Television, T.A.T. Communications
The ABC Theatre for Young Americans presented this truly outstanding program,which has provided a valuable lesson for young and old alike. The Wave, produced by T.A.T. Communications, was based on a true story of an experiment conducted in a California classroom. The Wave demonstrates a remarkable variety of truths, but none more important than it recognizes the ease with which cruelties can be perpetrated in the name of the state, supposedly in response to the passion of the masses for what they believe to be an ideal. The Wave was produced from Johnny Dawkins’ excellent script by Fern Field and directed with care and competency by Alex Grasshoff. Virginia L. Carter was executive producer. This is a fine example of the craftsmanship of a great network and for this, a Peabody Award.
