A Towering Task Coming to PBS Nationwide
A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps is coming to PBS stations across the country. There will be a nationwide premiere of A Towering Task on the PBS World channel on Friday, September 29th at 8pm and Saturday, September 30th at 3am, 9am, and 3pm.
In addition, individual stations are scheduling the film in local markets starting September 2nd. You can click this link to see the broadcasts that have been scheduled so far. And we are adding stations and dates every day.
To help get the story of the Peace Corps to as many audiences as possible, you can encourage your local station to schedule broadcasts of A Towering Task for your region! Simply call your station and ask them to schedule A Towering Task. Your station's membership services will take note! The film is available to PBS stations (through PBS distributor NETA) for the next three years - and possibly longer, if stations feel there is demand for it. With local PBS stations scheduling programming two to three months before airdate, now is the time to reach out to your station.
This is a great opportunity to educate a broad audience about the history of Peace Corps, its many successes, and the challenges the agency has faced since its founding in 1961. Find your local station here. Request a time slot. Enjoy the show!
