Editor's NoteOne of the earliest documentaries produced exclusively for television, the 26 episode VICTORY AT SEA won both an Emmy and a Peabody Award for its accomplishments. Featuring narration by Broadway actor Leonard Graves and a musical score by the legendary Richard Rodgers, VICTORY AT SEA took hours and hours of footage shot by the navy during the Second World War and trimmed it down to create a narrative of the war from the perspective of the major sea battles and maneuvers. Airing in the 1952-53 television season, VICTORY AT SEA went a step further than the newsreel format of the day while anticipating the coming era when footage from all over the world would be seen by television audiences as soon as events happened.
