How to get A TOWERING TASK shown on your local PBS station

 

 

If you were fortunate enough to see the new and brilliant documentary about the Peace Corps entitled A Tower Task that had its World Premiere at the Kennedy Center last weekend (or if you have just heard about it from other RPCVs) then you can drum up interest in having it shown on your local PBS station simply by calling the station. Your interest will nudge the station into realizing that there is ‘local interest’ in our great government agency and they might contact PBS back in Washington. If there is enough interest ‘out there” then the PBS folks would contact producer and director Alana De Joseph (Mali 1992-94) and ask her to let them show the documentary on all their stations. A little phone call from you can’t hurt and it might help bring the Peace Corps–and what you did as a PCV– into the living rooms of all Americans.

  • Here in New Mexico, which figured so prominently in the founding of the original Peace Corps, esp in Latin America, we certainly want to NM PBS to air the documentary. What do we do ?? ! Favor ! John Turnbull, Lower Canoncito, NM.

  • Thanks, John.
    To answer your question I would do what I suggested: ” you can drum up interest in having it shown on your local PBS station simply by calling the station. ”

    Not complicated.

    Thanks
