The Peabody Awards

United Nations Project





 1949 | NBC Radio

No subject is more vital to the welfare—yea, the very existence—of mankind than international understanding. And no radio program during 1949 was better designed to contribute to international understanding than the NBC United Nations Project. This concentrated, coordinated effort to explore the structure, philosophies, and accomplishments of the agency most concerned with world harmony has been important to the UN itself in the fulfillment of its far-flung mission. As such it richly merits this George Foster Peabody Radio Award for outstanding programming in promotion of international understanding.
