"This one-hour news magazine, 'MORE, ' consists of four reports and a final essay. The first report, 'The Black Ships, ' offers an oral and visual history of prohibition-era rum-smuggling in Massachusetts. 'Incest: A Family Affair' is the second report. It reveals the pain incest victims feel--and tells where they can find help. The third piece is a profile of four craft-workers preparing their unique creations for the holiday season. The fourth piece focuses on an often mis-understood religious group--The Black Muslims. [The] final essay takes a humorous look at the pains and pleasures of the Christmas season."--1981 Peabody Awards entry form.
