Two unusually well-crafted reports on medical issues from this PBS affiliate won KCET a Silver Baton. "Expecting Miracles," an hour-long broadcast, followed four California couples through the agonies of accepting and trying to overcome infertility. The program carefully documented the medical and psychological struggles of the couples for three years. It is full of new information, especially on the causes and treatment of male infertility, and its emotional impact is strong. "For the Sake of Appearances" is a half-hour investigative report on abuses in the practice of cosmetic surgery in Southern California. It is first-rate consumer reporting.
