April 12 2012 by Peter Morrill

A big congratulations to The Color of Conscience: Human Rights in Idaho team for being honored with a regional Edward R. Murrow Award. The Edward R. Murrow Awards are sponsored by the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA). An initial review of the awards list suggests that Idaho Public Television; KCET, Los Angeles; and WPBA, Atlanta were the only three public television stations honored this year in the fourteen RTNDA regions.

The Color of Conscience is an hour-long Idaho Public Television documentary that looks at the development of the modern human rights movement in Idaho. It features the story of a small group of concerned citizens who fought against the Aryan Nations, ultimately bankrupting the neo-Nazi supremacist group in north Idaho. The program also examines some of the current human rights issues in Idaho, such as gay rights, immigrant rights and hate crimes.

 

Major funding for this program was provided by: Idaho National Laboratory, The Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation, Idaho Women's Charitable Foundation and the Idaho Public Television Endowment.

 

Again, a big congratulations to our talented IdahoPTV staff!
