First year of Emmy for Interactive TV

This year will be the first time there will be an Emmy for Interactive TV. The scope is broad, covering on TV-screen graphics as well as related Web sites and is being seen as a first step in full recognition. Interestingly it will be given during the engineering awards presentation and will be a plaque, not a statuette. The article also refers to the 1950s TV show “Winky Dink and You” as being the first interactive TV show.
