This is the award-winning 60-minute public television documentary of John Robbins? Diet For A New America. When it was first produced by KCET, the Los Angeles PBS affiliate, the National Cattlemen?s Association mounted an aggressive campaign to discredit the program and keep it from being aired. But the attempt to thwart the show failed, and the program went on to be one of public television?s all-time most successful documentaries. When the Los Angeles Times described what happened in a lead editorial, the newspaper called this documentary: ?Controversial, powerful and beautiful? the kind of thing that public television should be doing, and often isn?t. . . Outstanding!?
