Camera Three


Camera Three is a stimulating, instructive, quiet and civilized program produced by WCBS-TV, New York, in cooperation with the State Education Department of the University of the State of New York. Camera Three set out, in its own words, “to put fact and conception together and to use the tremendous potential of the television camera in exploring the realities of man and his world, his arts and sciences, his ideas, his problems, his relationships to himself, to other men and to his world.” This is a large order, but Camera Three has mightily succeeded. We recall, especially, fine programs devoted to the art of the dance, to readings of Shakespeare, and to discussions of the emergence of Western man. In recognition, the George Foster Peabody Television Award in education is hereby presented to Camera Three.
