Personal Award: Steve Allen for “Meeting of Minds”


Steve Allen has created and hosted a truly original show in Meeting of Minds, presented by KCET, Los Angeles, on the Public Broadcasting Service. As historical celebrities come alive in a discussion rich in philosophical fireworks and engaging wit, host Allen keeps proceedings as orderly as possible. A Peabody Award is presented to Steve Allen, creator of this fascinating show—and a bow to his wife, Jayne Meadows, who often plays historical characters in productions of Meeting of Minds.
