HUB CITY AT ITS BEST. A LOOK AT EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY INTERESTING IN BOSTON. HOSTED BY EMILY ROONEY. Series release date: 1/1997
- Program Description
Greater Boston looks at issues of gang violence, drugs, and racism and hate as they are being addressed in Massachusetts. The production will have two broadcasts, bracketing the Hedrick Smith special SEEKING SOLUTIONS WITH HEDRICK SMITH. Emily Rooney spends an evening with Boston Streetworkers, a group that aims to combat youth violence by addressing the problem where it starts: on city streets. Local comedian Jimmy Tingle has joined an ethnically mixed group of comedians in "Laughing on Common Ground," a show that takes on racial stereotypes head-on. Scott Mercer investigates Boston's drug business and meets some people who are working to rid the city's streets of drugs.
