The leaflet says your local PBS station has decided to stop broadcasting South Africa Now; perhaps they believe that apartheid is over or that their viewers don't need to stay informed about Southern Africa. The leaflet says South Africa Now is an Emmy-award winning weekly TV show; if you want to save the show, a delegation of concerned citizens should try to meet with the local program or station manager or members of the station's Board of Directors to lobby for South Africa Now; Public Television is there to serve the public. The newsletter discusses the ANC (African National Congress), Chief Buthelezi, Inkatha, Tandeka Gqubule, Carolyn Craven, Producer Victor Sanchez, and the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations.
