A Special Gift (An ABC Afterschool Special)


A boy with two exciting talents—basketball and ballet—gives the American television viewer a real treat in the ABC Afterschool Specials presentation A Special Gift. Martin Tahse Productions took a story in which a personable young boy faced the first great dilemma of his life and brought it to life in such a way that no viewer was spared the agony of helping him make the choice. In the opinion of the Peabody Board, this excellent presentation merited recognition, thus a Peabody Award to ABC-TV for A Special Gift.
