Uncharacteristic, I know, but every once in awhile, someone broadcasts something worth watching.
Case in point: next Wednesday (April 21st), many PBS stations will air Food, Inc. as part of their “P.O.V.” (which stands for Point of View) documentary series. Check your local listings for times. TVGuide.com simply listed it as “P.O.V.,” which threw me for a moment, but don’t be fooled!
If my sources are correct, it’s airing in St. Louis at 9:00pm and Burlington, IA at 8:00pm. Personally, I prefer 8:00pm — less chance of interfering with my bed time and all, but I’ve been curious about Food, Inc. for awhile. Now I can watch it at my favorite price (FREE), while sitting comfortably on my couch, wearing what I want (i.e., sans pants).
Tune in and celebrate Earth Day Eve by learning about the connection between farming and food systems, our health, and the health of our planet — just remember to unplug the t.v. or flip the switch on the power strip when it’s over!
