> stations requirements, phone them and say you'd
> like to submit a half-hour
> program on DVD for broadcast. Also, ask if they will
> accept the entire Iraq
> Eyewitness series with one application.
> List of Programs
> After fulfilling their requirements (generally,
> filling out a simple
> application), contact us with the station's mailing
> address and we'll mail

> All stations airing our programs will be listed on
