Profiles In Courage

NBC Television, Robert Saudek

A Pulitzer prize-winning book written by a President of the United States is a formidable challenge to the television producer. To Robert Saudek and his associates, and to the National Broadcasting Company, a Peabody Award for their faithful, artistic, and sensitive portrayal of some of the most moving episodes in American history. By adapting this book to the television screen, Mr. Saudek and NBC have added the vital dimensions of sight and sound to enrich the nation’s understanding of its past, and to deepen the nation’s perception of its heritage.
