Winner 1982


Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

A unique and innovative approach to the presentation of history, 1905 captures the essence of what it sought to do—tell what life was like in 1905. The many tools of radio production, from voice-over narration to music and sound effects, are used to chronicle events in that year. The panoramic review ranges from global policy issues to popular music, effectively communicating the political, social, and cultural climate of the period. The Peabody Board recognizes 1905 as one Board member put it, “an outstanding example of how well the Canadians understand the medium of radio and how adept they are at using it.” A Peabody for the CBC for 1905.
