Series Description
"When Faith Middleton's science series, One on One, premiered 2 years ago, a survey by WGBH proved it was the most carried series of its kind nationwide. We're submitting the 2nd edition, a series of half-hour conversations with national scientists. They will amuse you, touch you, challenge you, and more. There's a lively use of sound; the conversations always take an unexpected turn; but most important, Faith specializes in making science understandable to everyone, including science-haters. We are swamped with mail about the series, which was aired via satellite, nationwide. Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society, promoted the series with a unique strategy: Sigma Xi chapters lobbied local public stations to carry the series and then created a large built-in audience in communities in advance. "The series includes...(Program 1: Shooting stars & the drummer from outer space with astronomer Harry Shipman. Program 2: Will bees prove that animals think, featuring Dr. Donald Griffin. Program 3: Adventure on the [Serengeti] Plain with Dr. Patricia Moehlman. Program 4: Searching for lemurs in the Madagascar rain forest with Dr. Allison Jolly. Program 5: Should scientists be responsible for what they create, featuring Dr. Victor Weiskopf, formerly of The Manhattan Project. Program 6: A walking tour of dinosaurs in the Great Hall with Dr. Kevin Padian. Program 7: What makes bridges stay up and fall down, featuring Dr. David Billington. Program 8: Using Bob Newhart comedy to teach physics, with Dr. William Bennett.)"--1986 Peabody Awards entry form.
