Every fall, the Third Coast Festival brings the best new documentaries produced worldwide to the national airwaves in a special two-hour program, Best of the Best: The Third Coast Festival Broadcast. The featured documentaries, all winners of the annual Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition, prove just how powerful radio can be. The stories engage, provoke, entertain, and transport listeners, proving that all you need to discover new worlds is a little box and an antenna.
This year's program includes winning segments from WNYC:
Radiolab’s “Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl” (Best Documentary: Silver Award).
Radio Rookie’s “The Modern Day Scarlet Letter A” (Radio Impact Award).
Hurricane Sandy Coverage, “Woman Emerges from the Dark” (Best News Feature).
