The Adams Chronicles


The Bicentennial Year brought many things to Americans—some exceptional, some noted for being singularly non-exceptional. One of the best things the Bicentennial year brought to Americans through television was The Adams Chronicles, produced by WNET/Thirteen in New York City. Shared with millions of Americans through the magic of our interconnected public broadcasting network, The Adams Chronicles brought new understanding and shed new light on the contributions of John Adams and his family to our fledgling nation. For the exceptional effort and the exceptional accomplishment of WNET/Thirteen through The Adams Chronicles, a well-deserved Peabody Award.
