Experiment in Television


This series exemplifies the breadth of television as an art form. Among the past year’s productions were three original plays: A film by and about Federico Fellini-his first venture into television; and an unorthodox documentary on “Pinter People,” a striking feature of which was highly sophisticated animation paraphrased by filmed street scenes of London today. The productions are inventive, imaginative, and original in concept and execution and immensely stimulating. In recognition of the high level of purpose and achievement, the George Foster Peabody Award for television entertainment.
