DOE Grantee Bari Scott Wins Award for NPR's DNA Files
SoundVisions Productions, founded and directed by Barinetta Scott and Jude Thilman, won a Silver Baton award for The DNA Files in the 2000 Alfred I. Du PontColumbia University television and radio competition. Hosted by John Hockenberry, the series consisted of nine 1-hour programs broadcast on National Public Radio. It was funded in part by the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications component of DOEs Human Genome Program.
Twelve winners were selected from 650 submissions aired between July1, 1998, and June 30, 1999. Bill Moyers won a Gold Baton for Facing the Truth, a 2-hour documentary about the aftermath of apartheid in South Africa. Other Silver Baton winners included Diane Sawyer (20/20: The Unwanted Children of Russia); Youth Radio, Berkeley (E-Mails from Kosovo); and CBS News and Bob Simon (60 Minutes II: The Shame of Srebrenica). The DuPontColumbia awards, among the most prestigious in broadcast journalism, began in 1943.
For this school year, Scott is a Knight Science Journalism fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
