INTERESTED IN BTTC AIRING ON YOUR PBS LOCAL STATION?
Here are some suggestions from PBS stations on how you can notify them to request Breaking Through the Clouds.
Send a polite, enthusiastic personal note, email, or letter to your local PBS station. The Viewer Services department can help guide you to the correct area if the contact is not immediately obvious.
PBS stations are part of the community and like community involvement so let them know if you are able to:
- Publicize their airdates:
- Mobilize screening parties in the community
- Get articles and features in the local media
- Spread the word about their airdates via your social media
- Promote their airdates at events in your community
One cautionary note: Please don’t call the programmer directly or threaten a station with withdrawing your membership or refusing to watch their channel if they don’t air the show.
Much like PBS stations, independent filmmakers rely on community as well. A supportive community is something the women modeled in the 1929 derby & their legacy in that vein continues today as evidenced by everyone's support.
THANK YOU to all the everyone out there for your help, enthusiasm, support and kindness.
