>Every< PBS station has received >at least< 3 seperate messages about LFM
direct from PBS HQ, detailing times, dates and coordinates. I have seen
copies of all these, which were directed to Education, Program and Outreach
Directors at the various stations. "You can lead a horse... " 

We wish you luck in convincing them to redress what would otherwise be an
unfortunate omission. The October 30th program is VERY good as an overview
both of the NASA missions, and how PTK/LFM has been able to make them
accessible to students and teachers.

Best wishes,
