The Wide World of Sports (ABC)




The Wide World of Sports
 1966 | ABC Television

More than a mere chronicling of athletic contests around the globe, ABC’s The Wide World of Sports, in concept and philosophy, has achieved a closer relationship of countries as well as competitors. Under producer Roone Arledge’s helm, this has been accomplished in an indefinable but nonetheless measurable way that does broadcasting credit. In recognition, a Peabody Award for international understanding.
