On May 21st, 1996, PBS videotaped the proceedings of a public policy forum organized by the Partnership for Responsible Drug Information (PRDI), which was entitled "Seeking Solutions to Problems With Our Drug Policy" and which featured a keynote speech by Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke. PBS videotaped the proceedings as possible footage for its syndicated show "Rights and Wrongs: Human Rights Television" with Charlayne Hunter-Gault.
We have been advised that PBS will utilize clips from the PRDI forum in a nationally broadcast presentation of "Rights and Wrongs". The half hour show, which is entitled "Human Rights and the War on Drugs", will air during the period of July 18th through July 24th, 1996. A schedule of stations and broadcast times follows at the end of this post.
"Human Rights and the War on Drugs" will feature an interview with President Clinton's 'Drug Czar', General Barry McCaffrey. Also featured will be Richard Stratton, editor of Prison Life Magazine, and Jamie Fellner of Human Rights Watch.
Please watch "Human Rights and the War on Drugs" and inform your colleagues and friends of its broadcast schedule.
This is a schedule for major media markets. Check your local listings for your local Public Television station in smaller markets that are not listed.
