TV Premiere of 'The Revisioniares' Tonight and Tuesday on PBS

by Dan Quinn

Starting tonight, everyone gets a chance to watch the award-winning documentary “The Revisionaries,” a film by director Scott Thurman that tells the story of the religious right’s culture warriors at the Texas State Board of Education and the Texas Freedom Network’s efforts to stop their efforts to undermine instruction on evolution and politicize social studies classrooms. In fact, TFN President Kathy Miller and our work are featured prominently throughout the film.

You have two ways to watch “The Revisionaries.” The first opportunity comes your way when it premieres on PBS’ Independent Lens as a one-hour film. Most PBS stations will air the program tonight (Monday), but some have scheduled it for Tuesday. See below for air times in Texas cities. Many PBS stations will re-air the program again later this week. Check your local listings.

You can also watch the full director’s version — which is closer to 90 minutes — by contacting the Texas Freedom Network. TFN can help you put together a screening of the full film for a group or organization. If you would like to set up a screening of the director’s cut, click here to email TFN Outreach Director Val Benavidez.

Either way, we strongly encourage you to watch the film Michael Moore says every American should see.

Again, most PBS stations will air “The Revisionaries” tonight (Monday) at 9 p.m. (Central time). Below are air dates and times for some Texas cities. For air dates and times in other cities in Texas and across the country — and for re-airing dates — click here to check your local listings.
