The Quick and the Dead

NBC Radio

To The Quick and the Dead, National Broadcasting Company, the George Foster Peabody Award for education in recognition of the success of this series in simplifying and dramatizing a difficult technical subject and in dwelling on the good as well as the evil that lies in the conquest of nuclear energy—with a special word of praise for William Laurence of The New York Times, who brought to this program a wide knowledge and long experience in popularizing science; for Bob Hope and the players who interpreted the drama of the atom bomb; and for William F. Brooks and Fred Friendly of NBC for their behind-the-scenes planning.
