Whose Children Are These? will be offered to PBS affiliate stations to record via PBS's National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA) on August 26, 2007. Stations will then decide whether or not to air the program. PBS stations are flooded with requests to show multiple programs. Any attention that can be brought to programs, such as emails, help station programmers to figure out which ones to give priority to.
You can help immensely by sending emails to the programmers of your favorite PBS stations requesting Whose Children Are These?. Encourage them to air it and let them know why you feel it is important to show this film.
Most importantly, spread the word to friends, family, through emails, posting on list serves, blogs, social networking sites (myspace, facebook, etc). If you have any suggestions for outreach or contacts at stations, please send an email to email@example.com.
We would not be able to do this without you and we truly appreciate your support!!!! Thank you!
Here’s how you do it:
1) Find the station nearest you (listed alphabetically by city) in the drop-down menu on the right.
Stations highlighted in yellow are able to be contacted using the form below.
If a station is not highlighted, you will be taken to their contact page when you click on the station name. You can then copy and paste information on this page into the form on their page.Please make sure you type "Whose Children Are These?" as the subject line.
2) Enter your name and email address.
3) Write your request in the box allotted. There is a sample already provided for you in the text box. This is only a sample. Please feel free to add your own reasons for why you feel it is important for the film to be shown.
If you do not see your city listed here, you can find it on the PBS Station Finder at www.pbs.org/stationfinder/. Once you see your station, click on its name, and go to the bottom of the station’s website and look for ‘Contact Us.’ There, you should be directed to a page or an email address (look for Programming or Viewer Services), where you will be able to contact the station. Once the program has an airdate, check out some great ideas about how to spread the word with our Outreach Guide. (Click here for PDF).
