Please pass on to your diectors and producers that 70-year old eyes do not appreciate their attemps to make a video more dramatic by introducing bright flashes between scenes (as in your preview of the catacombs program)and other methods of 'transitioning' from one scene to the next that are so difficult for older eyes to adjust to and follow. Although an older viewer, I am intensely interested in history and find this type of program very interesting to watch. But they are interesting to watch because of the subject matter, not because of the videomakers' attempts to introduce drama through these special effects.

I can not find this info anywhere but can you please tell me when I can find when the program "Avalanche on the mountain" will be on the air again? Sal
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  Rotaries: Avalanche on the Mountain is not due to air again at this time.  You may want to check our schedule from time to time.  It is possible that it might be shown again.

I have searched cpt12 and pbs info and cannot find any mention of this 4 episode series that was mentioned in your recent fundraising letter. I do not want to miss it. When is it on, did I already miss it, is it part of Nova or ??? Please more info on Super Skyscrapers. Thanks Jane Anderson
CPT12 Response:
I am not sure what was said in the recent fundraising letter but I think the episode you are looking for is NOVA: Ground Zero: Supertower.  It looks like we aired that in September.  There are complicated rights with the NOVA series and we generally don’t repeat them unless they get re-fed from satellite.
Here is a link to PBS that has NOVA episodes that you can watch:
Here is the link to the NOVA series on our website - http://www.cpt12.org/tv_schedule/program_details.cfm?series_id=5910072.  You can also watch episodes on our website.
Hope this helps.
