Galactica Collects The Peabody Award
Hot off SciFi Wire:

Battlestar Galactica executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick were on hand in New York June 5 to accept a prestigious Peabody Award for the SCI FI Channel original series. They were joined by cast members Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Jamie Bamber, Katee Sackhoff and Grace Park at the 65th annual Peabody Awards ceremony, hosted by TV satirist Jon Stewart, which took place at the historic Waldorf-Astoria hotel. The show's writing staff was also in attendance.

Video of Moore and Eick's acceptance speeches - as well as praise from fellow Peabody winners and South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone - have been posted on SCIFI.COM's SCI FI Pulse video feature.

Peabody winners were announced in April by the event's organizer, the University of Georgia. The awards honor "distinguished achievement and meritorious service by radio and television networks, stations, producing organizations, cable television organizations and individuals."

ScoreKeeper interviews BATTLESTAR GALACTICA'S Bear McCreary!!!
ScoreKeeper with an interview he conducted with Bear McCreary, the composer of the new BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.

Greetings! ScoreKeeper here filling the between-seasons-void for "Battlestar Galactica" fans everywhere by posting my recent interview with "Galactica" composer Bear McCreary. The music is one of the aspects of this show that truly sets it apart from other network television series. Bear is not only the composer but also a huge fan of the show which is clearly evident in his music. Here’s a little behind-the-music magic while you’re anxiously awaiting Season Three.

SCOREKEEPER: What about "Battlestar Galactica" can you tell people who aren’t familiar with the show that this is really a series they should check out?

McCREARY: Honestly, I have yet to find a way to convince people. I think a lot of people see the words "science-fiction" or even worse, they hear the word “spaceship” and they tune out. So I’ve found that it’s easier to let people hear about it. I have friends that I’ve told them to watch the show and they said ‘I don't like science-fiction shows.’ A year later they call me up and say ‘I love Battlestar! Why didn’t you tell me how different it was?’
