Beth Pike, BJ ’86, and Stephen Hudnell, BJ ’73, both Emmy award-winning journalists from Columbia, won first place in the Best Foreign Language Film category of the China Academy Awards Documentary Film for “Deadline in Disaster.” The story shares the The Joplin (Mo.) Globe’s response to a violent EF-5 tornado that devastated the southwest Missouri community on May 22, 2011. “Deadline in Disaster” faced stiff competition, placing ahead of “80s: The Decade That Made Us,” produced by National Geographic; “History of the World,” by BBC; and “How We Invented the World: Phones,” by Discovery Productions.
