Description
Series Description
"'And Baby Makes Three: The Hope and Risk of High Tech Conception' is a five part series aired by New Hampshire Public Radio on its daily interview show 'Perspectives,' hosted by Laura Kiernan. It explored the tough issues surrounding science and reproduction--the expense, the medical risk, the emotional ordeal and the ethical dilemmas. A detailed summary of the series is attached. "We think this series merits Peabody attention because it represents a unique effort by a very small local staff to bring a complicated national issue home to our listeners. Since Perspectives debuted in October 1993, our goal has been to connect our listeners with important issues and ideas, through intelligent, well-informed discussion. We feel this series exemplifies that effort. "The series was planned and produced by host Laura Kiernan, news producer Eric Westervelt, and assistant producer Scott McPherson. Kiernan and McPherson booked the interviews over several months--while still producing 'Perspectives' on a daily basis. Westervelt engineered on site interviews at Dartmouth College and Medical School and produced the final version of the series. All the interviews were researched and conducted by Kiernan. "Through our effort, we feel we made a very substantive contribution to discussion of an issue of great public--and private-- importance."--1995 Peabody Awards entry form.
