DESCRIPTION:
(from PBS's press release, September 2012) WNET is pleased to announce the renewal through June 30, 2013 of its national weekly newsmagazine, Need to Know. The series - with Jeff Greenfield, Maria Hinojosa, Scott Simon, and Ray Suarez -- is part of PBS's news and public affairs programming and is broadcast during primetime on Fridays nationwide, with repeats over the weekend in some markets. (Check local listings.) The program's single-topic, 30-minute format features in-depth, documentary-styled reports focusing on how policies set in Washington affect Main Street. During the past season, the show has filed original stories from around the nation on many of the most pressing issues of our times: unemployment and under-employment in a monthly "Help Wanted" series; the foreclosure crisis; the difficulty of getting by on food stamps; healthcare reform; veterans care; prison reform; EPA regulation, the lingering effects of NAFTA, and how Chinese dumping of solar panels has cost Americans jobs.
