Storyline

Launched in 1989, NBC's "The More You Know" series of brief public service announcements has utilized the talents of some of Hollywood's brightest stars (almost only actors appearing on NBC-TV programs at the time), writers, and directors to deliver messages about such topics as tolerance, mentoring, parental involvement, and the prevention of violence. The winner of numerous Emmy and Peabody Awards, "The More You Know" has been praised for its effectiveness in harnessing the power of television for a greater good. Written by Anonymous

Powerful Television Indeed
15 June 2015 | by jlthornb51See all my reviews

Important messages of profound depth delivered in a way that caught viewers attention and opened their minds in an essential way. This was television at its most vital, educating, enlightening, and broadening the understanding of the public. Valuable commercial time was actually sacrificed by the network in order to bring information to the attention of viewers and none of them could be casually dismissed. Unfortunately, the list of contributors is woefully incomplete in the IMDb listing. For instance, significant work was done by Kathryn Erbe of Law and Order: Criminal Intent and there is simply no mention of that among the lengthy cast. She added gravitas and depth to the message she delivered and to overlook her is beyond belief.
