Paley Center & the Peabodys: Finding Excellence in Media
Thursday, May 16, 2013
6:30 pm ET
Excellence in media has always been difficult to judge, but the George Foster Peabody Awards has been doing it for more than seventy years. Our stellar panel of multiple Peabody winners will examine how the concept of excellence has evolved over the years in a variety of genres. Each of our panelists brings a special insight into creating work that is the gold standard for the industry from Amy Poehler's shrewd look at local government in Parks and Recreation to David Simon's complex investigation of urban decay in The Wire to Charlayne Hunter-Gault's incisive look at apartheid for the NewsHour. Our panel will also consider what programs have served as benchmarks over the decades, and how television can continue to create work of the highest order.
In association with the George Foster Peabody Awards
The Paley Center Salutes Broadway

12:30 pm ET
In honor of the annual broadcast of the Tony Awards, the Paley Center is happy to partner with Opera Index and the 2013 Tony Awards Film Series to screen two programs from our collection: the 1971 Tony Awards broadcast and the 1967 Armstrong Circle Theatre version of Carousel with Robert Goulet.
Special Screening: 1971 Tony Awards
The 25th Annual Tony Awards ceremony (held on March 28, 1971) was a first-class affair from start to finish. Produced by the late, great showman Alexander Cohen (with a witty, literate script by Cohen's wife, Hildy Parks), it paid tribute to every show that had won the Best Musical Tony Award during the previous quarter-century. The star-studded list of participants who re-created their original roles included Zero Mostel (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Fiddler on the Roof), AlfrEd Drake (Kiss Me, Kateand Kismet), Robert Preston (The Music Man), Gwen Verdon (Can-Can, Damn Yankees, andRedhead), and Carol Channing (Hello, Dolly!). The program was hosted by Lauren Bacall, Anthony Quinn, Angela Lansbury, and Anthony Quayle.
