The Long Eyes of Kitt Peak


Television has often made it delightfully possible for us to go places and see things we could never have experienced in the flesh. KOOL-TV in Phoenix used television to do just that. Joining Bill Miller, who wrote, directed and produced, with cinematographer Manny Garcia, and calling upon the excellent narrative talents of Mary Jo West, KOOL-TV took viewers on a memorable trip to examine The Long Eyes of Kitt Peak and see the largest and most complex astronomical research facility anywhere. It was a fascinating—and rewarding—trip which, in the opinion of the Peabody Board, merited this recognition.
