At the Michigan Association of Broadcasters 2013 awards ceremony recently held in Lansing, Delta College’s Q-TV received a Broadcast Excellence Award for its locally produced documentary, THE KOREAN WAR – Voices from the 38th Parallel.
Bob Przybylski, Director and Co-Producer, and Christine Santiago-Drake, Writer and Co-Producer, won the Best in Category – Documentary award for the program which tells the stories of local Korean War Veterans. Twenty-three veterans from throughout the Great Lakes Region and Michigan were interviewed for the documentary, which premiered on Delta College’s Q-TV in September, 2012.
“It was an absolute honor to meet and tell the stories of these ‘forgotten war’ veterans and see them finally get some recognition for all the hardships they went through during the war and even after they returned home,” said Przybylski. “And to be recognized with this award by our peers for all the hard work we put into creating this documentary really means a great deal to all of us here at Q-TV.”
This is the fourth time Q-TV has won the Best in Category Broadcast Excellence Award from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters. Previous winning documentaries included:
Tracks Through Time: Michigan Railroad - History & Impact (2008)
Sawdust & Shanty Boys - Logging the Saginaw Valley White Pine (2006)
Vanishing Voices of World War Two (2005)
THE KOREAN WAR – Voices from the 38th Parallel will be re-broadcast on May 14, 2013 at 8 pm during Q-TV’s May Fest Pledge Drive. For more information, contact Bob Przybylski at 989-686-9569.
