Avoiding Armageddon Documentary

I received an email about this today and I thought it might be of interest to people around here...

"Avoiding
Armageddon" examines
the threats posed by nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and brings viewers
face-to-face with the people racing to use them. It looks at the explosive
connection between terrorism and these weapons, and it asks whether the world
has the ability and the will to control the weapons.

The timely series is hosted by renowned journalist Walter Cronkite, and each
episode concludes with a discussion on the provocative issues raised.

"Avoiding Armageddon" is composed of four two-hour episodes, each focusing on a
particular aspect of the threat. "Silent Killers: Poisons and Plagues" is about
chemical and biological weapons; "Nuclear Nightmares: Losing Control" tells of
past and present nuclear dangers; "The New Face of Terror: Upping the Ante"
explores the dangerous intersection between global terrorism and these weapons;
and "Confronting Terrorism: Turning the Tide" asks how mankind can create a
safer world while preparing to combat the worst.

We expect this program will be provocative and will address many of those issues
related to weapons of mass destruction that are not being currently addressed in
mainstream media. If you are interested in learning more about the program, you
can visit their website at www.avoidingarmageddon.org.



The show airs on PBS April 14-17 from 9-11pm

I know that I plan to watch... I hope I'll learn something

I'm planning to watch this as well. We all know about all of the horror and tragedy the evils of terrorism and biological and chemical weapons can cause. We all need to be informed to deal with these things.
