'Libby, Montana' airs August 28 on PBS
Documentary on Libby asbestos health crisis
July 10, 2007
The award-winning feature documentary “Libby, Montana”, produced by High Plains Films, will have its North American television premiere on August 28, 2007, on the PBS series Point-of-View. Produced by Doug Hawes-Davis and Drury Gunn Carr for High Plains Films, a non-profit documentary media production and distribution company based in Missoula, the film is available for worldwide television markets.
The film chronicles one of the worst public health crises in U. S. history, more than 200 deaths and hundreds of victims with asbestos-related lung abnormalities, and events that led to a ten-count criminal indictment against top executives and managers of W. R. Grace and Company.
Point of View celebrates its 20th Anniversary with a new slate on PBS on consecutive Tuesdays at 10 p.m., June through October.
PBS is available on channel 68 in Libby.
