100+ TV stations nationwide to air documentary

September 10, 2009 by

More than 100 ABC television stations nationwide plan to broadcast the new documentary, “Interrupted Lives: Catholic Sisters Under European Communism,” when it’s released this Sunday.

Stations from Alaska to Florida and Hawaii to New England will air the one-hour program based on the decades of research by Sisters Mary Savoie ad Margaret Nacke, both Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia.

The list of stations is available on the web site for the Interfaith Broadcasting Commission (www.interfaithbroadcasting.com), a coalition of American religious organizations that provide faith programming to the major television networks. “Interrupted Lives” was submitted by the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops, which provided part of its funding, and is being offered to ABC affiliates as part of the network’s “Vision and Values” series.

The IBC list, while extensive, is not complete. As one example, KTKA-49, the ABC affiliate in Topeka, is scheduled to air “Interrupted Lives” at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 13, but it is not included in the IBC list. (KTKA had earlier announced that the documentary would air Sunday night, but the time has changed, according to the station’s posted schedule.) Viewers can check the schedules of specific ABC stations by going to their web sites or calling their offices.

    So happy that so many affiliate stations will air your documentary, Mary and Margaret. It is such an inspirational film. Unfortunately, here in Atlanta, while I have contacted our affiliate station, they have chosen not to air it because of a full schedule. They are aware of the documentary and know that the DVD is available, however. Congratulations on all of your hard work. Many will benefit from its compassionate contents for sure!
