Institutional Award: Intertel (Council of the International Television Federation) for Contribution to International Understanding
Intertel (International Television Federation)
In the fragile field of international cooperation and understanding, a strong bond has been formed by the documentaries produced by the five-year-old Council of the International Television Federation, known as Intertel, which links the English-speaking nations through the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Britain’s Rediffusion TV Ltd., and, in America, the Westinghouse Broadcasting Company and National Educational Television. By sharing these special programs which focus on contemporary forces at work in the world today, Intertel has made the first continuing contribution toward international understanding through television. In recognition, a Peabody Award.
