Winner 1976

The Garden Plot: Food as a Weapon

Associated Press Radio

Excellent writers and producers for Associated Press Radio have taken what is inherently a low-interest topic and produced a remarkably high-interest program with substantial meaning for all Americans. Thoroughly researched and meticulously produced, this documentary made a very real contribution to radio during 1976 in the United States. By this recognition, the Peabody Board acknowledges the contribution of the Associated Press to radio broadcasting in 1976 and hopes this excellent contribution from a newcomer to the radio documentary scene heralds a substantial move in this direction, both by the AP and by others.
