Backhauling




Backhauling
 1990 | KCTS-TV, Seattle, Washington, MacNeil/Lehrer NewHour, New York, New York

Public television station KCTS 9 in Seattle utilized the services of numerous talented people to produce a chilling look at what happens in the trucking industry when haulers transport toxic chemicals one way and then transport food products on the return. This investigative report was presented on the “MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour” on PBS during March of 1990. The production group spent more than four months interviewing, videotaping, examining documents and truckers’ log books and even utilized home videotapes in putting the report together. Recognition by the Peabody Board should go to Barry Mitzman, Les Crystal and Gregg Ramshaw who served as Executive Producers, to Producer/Director Chris Sharp, to Vivia Boa, Associate Producer, to Valerie Vozza who served as videographer/editor, and to Lee Hochberg, the featured personality.
