Korva Coleman reports the headlines, including including upcoming vote on ban of assault weapons; helicopter crash in New York City with a report from WNYC's Dick Hinchliffe; violence in Kigale and the Rwandan civil war with a report from the BBC's Mark Doyle; and the caning of American Michael Fay in Singapore for vandalism and theft.
Series Description
"The entry gives a sense of the broad range of topics covered on this public affairs program which airs daily M-F on public radio KQED in San Francisco. We include a program on why people don't vote (from city hall), a state-wide broadcast on Health Care, a broadcast from Rwanda, AIDS and Profit Politics and an interview with famed physicist Murray Gell Mann. The program covers- rather extensively and with true depth- international, national, state and local matters of concern and public interest and interviews a host of people in all sciences, news making areas of many stripes-all programming passionately dedicated to higher discourse and high quality in radio broadcasting."--1994 Peabody Awards entry form.
