And the Emmy Goes to...Oil Spill

Discovering Alabama: Oil Spill received two regional Emmy awards from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in Atlanta this past Saturday, June 20th. Last year, the long-running series known for celebrating the natural wonders of Alabama won its first Emmy for Discovering Alabama: Space. Although not a news-oriented series, when the oil began spewing into the Gulf of Mexico,  it was impossible to ignore the long term questions that left many wondering about the impact. Time has passed. News crews have moved on to new stories. Yet this documentary reminds us that this story is far from over. Natural history doesn't have the luxury to just forget.


And the Emmy Goes To...Us!

Discovering Alabama: Alabama in Space won in the category "Writer--Program (Non-News)." For 25 years Discovering Alabama has been celebrating the natural history and wonders of Alabama and for six decades CPT&R has been producing public television. This award reflects what teamwork and vision can accomplish.
