UA’s “Discovering Alabama” Brings Home Emmy Awards

Discovering Alabama: Oil Spill received two regional Emmy awards from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in Atlanta on June 20th, 2011. Last year, the long-running series known for celebrating the natural wonders of Alabama won its first Emmy for Discovering Alabama: Space. Although not a news-oriented series, when the oil began spewing into the Gulf of Mexico, it was impossible to ignore the long term questions that left many wondering about the impact. Time has passed. News crews have moved on to new stories. Yet this documentary reminds us that this story is far from over. Natural history doesn’t have the luxury to just forget.
