Description
Episode Description
"The 'instant turnaround documentary' reported and explained the events of the Williamsburg (Va.) economic summit -- held Memorial Day Weekend 1983 - from the vantage point of 24 hours after the summit's conclusion. An overview of the summit and its issues was presented, especially focusing on interest rates. A report gave the background of these summits and their history; one looked at different attitudes toward valuation and exchange of money; one looked at the possibility of a new Bretton-Woods-style conference on the international monetary system; one discussed problems posed by U.S. attitudes toward trade with such issues as 'free trade' and protectionism; and one looked at international economic issues involving agriculture. An interview with Treasury Secretary Donald Reagan gave the U.S. view of what the summit meant; interviews with an official of Manufacturers Hanover and with a correspondent for 'Le Monde' gave alternative interpretations. In conclusion, a report looked at the media-event aspects of Williamsburg's summit, and at its effects on the area's tourism. "*PLEASE NOTE: NBR is a series seen every weeknight; but this special was done as a one-time documentary, with different funding and program lengths."--1983 Peabody Awards entry form.
