25 years later, I finally get to see it.
19 April 2005 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

What struck me most was how little has changed, here and there. Twenty-five years ago I was living in Birmingham, AL. I was aware of the program only because of the ads against it and some mild coverage in the local press about the decision of the local PBS station's decision not to air the program. Apparently, there was enough Saudi money within our local community that put enough pressure on our own PBS station to pull the plug.

Anyway, the concepts and ideas in this presentation still stand the test of time. If anything, they foreshadow what has taken place all these years later. All faiths and religions are corrupted by fundamentalist interpretations. The MSM is even more vulnerable to corruption than that PBS affiliate was all those years ago.

One thing that has changed is that I am now a proud citizen of New York City and I finally got to see it on Frontline. I have to wonder if Birmingham was finally lucky as well.
