Portrait of America


Portrait of America is an ambitious series which attempts to present a rarely seen positive view of our country. Each 60-minute episode concentrates on a single state, allowing executive producer Ira Miskin and producer Marty Killeen the opportunity to discover the diversity of land and people within its borders. In an era characterized by limited-run programs long on action and violence and short on substance, the WTBS commitment to 50 unique programs is truly exemplary. The Peabody Board recognizes this extraordinary attempt by owner Ted Turner and his associates to share the American experience on Superstation WTBS and the Board looks forward to the remaining programs in this series.
