NBC University Theatre


nbc unversity theatre

In 1944, NBC brought 'World's Great Novels' to radio, offering high quality adaptations of some of the great works of literature. Some colleges offered college credit in conjunction with the radio broadcasts. In 1948, the series was re-titled 'NBC University Theatre of the air' and production was moved to Hollywood. The first broadcast of the new series aired July 30, 1948. These adaptations were again of high quality and again colleges offered credit in conjunction with the broadcasts. In 1948, the Peabody was awarded to the NBC University Theatre. Long after the demise of regularly scheduled dramatic radio in the United States, these shows were still being heard in school classrooms across the nation.
