Fantastic! In case anyone out there in LUGland doesn't know it, the Peabody
is the t.v. journalism equivalent of the Pulitzer.....

Thanks, B.D.
I was part of a team that included several other photographers and
writer/producers for  "A Sunday Journal." In New Orleans it had higher
ratings than a certain CBS News Magazine that played just adjacent to
our time slot.  I had the great fortune to be given full artistic
freedom in the shooting and editing of my segments, and was usually
just let loose to bring back the goods.  This was not a "hard news"
show, and it always seemed like I was on vacation instead of at work
when I was involved with a segment.  Jim Metcalf, host and executive
producer,  was an old line reporter with a soft edge;  A real prince
to work with.


From the Peabody Awards webpage:
Year: 1975
Title: A Sunday Journal
Organization(s):  WWL-TV
City/State: New Orleans Louisiana
WWL-TV is no stranger to the Peabody Awards. In 1975, this New Orleans
giant presented with uniqueness and beauty a striking series of
exceptionally well-done programs titled “A Sunday Journal.” Host Jim
Metcalf blended each facet of the programs together with skill and
aplomb. His efforts were marked by good writing, excellent
photography, and artistic presentation. In the opinion of the Peabody
Board, “A Sunday Journal” is an excellent example of what a dedicated
television station can do, utilizing its own community and its own
staff, both to their best advantage.
