Screen-L members might be interested in my new PBS trade book
from Prima Publishing called PBS:BEHIND THE SCREEN. It is 320
pages long, hardback, and deals with the early history of the
network and specific programs: Sesame Street, MacNeil-Lehrer,
Bill Moyers, Frontline, American Experience, The Advocates,
Firing Line, The French Chef, This Old House, Masterpiece
Theatre, Mystery!, Monty Python, Yes, Minister, Free to Choose,
etc.
The preface will be by Van Gordon Sauter, former president of
CBS News.
I'm sure the publisher would be interested in either classroom
orders (there are 13 chapters, perfect for a semester
course) or library orders. The number is (916) 632-4400. Probably
journal editors could get review copies, and you might be able
to talk them into preview copies for classroom consideration, I
don't know.
 
I'd be happy to go lecture and talk about -- or debate -- the
book with students and faculty after it comes out, if anyone is
interested in extending an invitation. My publicist at Prima is
named Christine Lemmon and her number is also (916) 632-4400.
