This New Frontier


This New Frontier, produced under the skillful guiding hand of Phil Johnson, news director for WWL-TV, New Orleans, is an outstanding attempt to interpret the nation of Israel for the viewers of WWL-TV. It presents, in a unique way, an old country, sacred to three great faiths, and oftentimes a battleground because of those faiths. Depicting the people of Israel as they strive to forge a new nation, This New Frontier has made a significant contribution to American television and for this contribution, the Peabody Board presents this award.
