Description
Episode Description
This broadcast is one in a series of public affairs programs from KQED called Forum. In this program, Michael Krasny and his guests discuss AIDS in America, mostly as it relates to hemophilia and the public's growing distrust in medical companies. Listeners from across California call in to ask questions of the experts and give their own opinions. Guests include: Todd Smith, president of the Northern CA chapter of National Hemophiliac Foundation; [Maya Crece], KQED reporter covering AIDS in Costa Rica; Tom Drees, former president of Alpha Therapeutics; and Merwin Auslander, attorney for hemophiliac AIDS patient Channon Phipps. After the episode, Ray Suarez previews an episode of Talk of the Nation on the subject of violence in South Africa. Korva Coleman reports the headlines, including negotiations between Nelson Mandela, F.W. DeKlerk, Mangosuthu Buthelezi of the Inkatha party, and a Zulu leader. She also reports on deadly tornadoes in Georgia and Alabama; a church in Alabama was destroyed on Palm Sunday; comments from journalist Lane Weatherbee are included. Coleman introduces a report from Mike Shuster about the development of biological weapons by the Russians. Finally, Coleman reports on conflict in the Middle East and gives stock market figures.
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.
