Subject: Alcor in TV Documentary

A few weeks ago, I mentioned here that Alcor had refused to participate
in a syndicated TV spot on cryonics, supposedly because I would be
featured in it. My source for this statement was the producer of the show,
who told me several times that my presence in the show was the reason that
Alcor preferred not to be featured. However, I have since heard from
someone at Alcor who insists that this is not the whole story, and Alcor
had other problems with the conception of the show. Either way, I
understand that Alcor did eventually resolve its differences with the
production company, and decided to participate. I was glad to hear this.

According to the producer, the 5-minute feature will be aired via many
large regional TV stations, as a part of their nightly news. I don't have
any information about the probable broadcast date.
