The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced the winners of the 33rd annual Emmy Awards last week. The Emmys for new approaches to news and documentary programming, the online portion of the awards, go to Time Video for “Beyond 9/11: Portraits of Resilience” and to the Council on Foreign Relations & MediaStorm for “Crisis Guide: Iran.”

At a time when Iran is drawing more international scrutiny, the latest “Crisis Guide” examines Iran’s history, its oil-driven economy, controversies about its nuclear programs and more.

The project is both a chilling narrative of the violence in Washington, D.C., and a public service.
