Treasures of the British Crown

NBC Television, British Broadcasting Corporation

One of the really remarkable television programs of the year resulted when the BBC, in association with NBC, took American viewers on a fascinating tour to view the priceless Treasures of the British Crown. Four members of the British Royal Family—Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, and the Queen Mother Elizabeth—joined Sir Huw Wheldon in conducting this incomparable view of a priceless collection. For giving the common man such an experience, a Peabody Award both to BBC and to NBC.
