My vote for the PR success story of 2006 is Al Gore's film An Inconvenient Truth. It's being credited with moving the conversation about the environment to the tipping point - that is, where the process takes a dramatic, expoential leap forward.
The environment has been Gore's message since his college days and in An Inconvenient Truth, he presents his life study in a clear and compelling way - when I googled An Inconvenient Truth, I got 2,270,000 results. It's a stand out example of sucessfully getting your message across to multiple audiences.
