Documentary on Church to Air Nationwide

A two-part documentary about the Church will air nationally on PBS April 30 and May 1, 2007. American Experience and Frontline, both PBS programs, have teamed up to release the four-hour documentary The Mormons, directed by award-winning filmmaker Helen Whitney.

The documentary, not produced by the Church, will focus on the Church, from its origins in the 1800s to the Church today. The documentary will air in two installments: the first night will focus on the history of the Church, while the second night will focus on the Church today.

For more than three years, Whitney interviewed hundreds of people for the film and was given access to the leadership of the Church on all levels. Whitney traveled cross-country and sent a crew to Ghana to show that the Church exists throughout the world. Whitney also attended ward meetings and went on visits with home teachers.
