Institutional Award: National Public Affairs Center for Television (NPACT)
NPACT (National Public Affairs Center for Television)
NPACT (The National Public Affairs Center for Television) has been the primary national producer of public affairs programming for the Public Broadcasting Service’s member stations. At no time has it performed a more meritorious public service than it did during 1974 with its programming dealing with Watergate and the move toward impeachment. The turmoil of 1974 served to demonstrate what NPACT could do—and did. And for this, a George Foster Peabody Award.
