P.O.V., public television's award-winning independent non-fiction film series presents
KPFA ON THE AIR
By Veronica Selver & Sharon Wood
A co-presentation with the Independent Television Service (ITVS)
Week of Tuesday, September 19th at 10PM ET
In 1949, America’s first listener-supported community radio station, KPFA, began broadcasting from Berkeley, California. The station quickly became a living testament to free speech and cultural diversity--a vital community of the air that often found itself embroiled in conflict. This riveting film takes us through KPFA’s passionate 50-year history, including its founding by pacifists and poets, through its defiance of Cold War conformity, to the present day challenges that confront this on-going experiment in democratic media.
