Politics of Poison


KRON-TV used the multi-talented John D. Ravinovitch to put together a frightening appraisal of the results of herbicide spraying in northern California. The resulting documentary was television at its best. Narrator Michael Learned was an ideal choice in bringing the picture and narrative into gripping focus and the result was a television presentation which the Peabody Board found worthy of all the recognition possible. To KRON-TV, a Peabody Award for Politics of Poison.
