Posted on May 3, 2011

This weeks program features:

  • News headlines from the Americas by Carmen Andrea Rivera, read by Langston Blues.
  • Voices from the Peralta Hacienda, featuring the history of early California’s first Afro-Indian Governor Pico.
  • Excerpts and discussion of “Paul Jacobs and the Nuclear Gang”: A poignant and potent political documentary that exposes the government’s suppression of the health hazards of low-level radiation. Paul Jacobs is himself a victim of lung cancer, that would kill him before this picture was finished and which his doctors believe he contracted while he was investigating nuclear policies in 1957. He interviews civilians and soldiers, survivors of nuclear experiments in the 50s and 60s, testing the effects of radiation. This film won: -1980 EMMY Award for best TV program
- George F. Polk Award for investigative journalism on TV
- Hefner First Amendment Award for journalism, and the 
- Mannheim Film Festival first critics’ prize.
