      APT WINS FOUR REGIONAL EMMY AWARDS

      Alabama Public Television has received four Southeastern Regional Emmy
      Awards from the National Academy of Arts & Sciences for documentaries
      produced on the Montgomery Bus Boycott and on contemporary Alabama
      artist Thornton Dial.

      Earning awards for excellence in Documentary Production was "Justice
      Without Violence," a 30-minute documentary on the Montgomery Bus Boycott
      of 1955 -1956, produced and directed by APT Executive Producer Amanda
      Shaw Newsome. Newsome also earned an Emmy for her script for the film,
      which was underwritten by Alabama Power, the City of Montgomery, the
      Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce, the Montgomery Convention and
      Visitors' Bureau, Montgomery County and the Alabama Department of
      Tourism

      Celia Carey, APT's Director of Documentary Productions, received an Emmy
      for a seven-minute promo for "Mr. Dial Has Something to Say," a
      feature-length documentary underwritten by Alabama Power that is slated
      to run on APT on October 16.

      "Thornton Dial," a 19-minute short underwritten by the Houston Museum of
      Art and Alabama Power, received an Emmy for producer/director Carey in
      the directing category. The film previously won at the 2006 San
      Francisco International Film Festival in the Best TV Documentary Short
      Form category and earned an Audience Choice Award at Birmingham's
      Sidewalk Film Festival.

      APT Executive Director Allan Pizzato notes, "We've said that APT is
      uniquely positioned to be Alabama's storyteller. Thanks to the talented
      people at APT who have made it possible for us to receive nine Emmy
      nominations and five Emmy Awards over the past three years, we can say
      we are Alabama's award-winning storyteller."


      APT earned a 2005 regional Emmy with "The Quiltmakers of Gee's Bend" and
      a 2006 regional Emmy nomination for "Alabama Ballet: The Making of Romeo
      and Juliet," both of which were produced and directed by Celia Carey.
