Blatant self-promotion. The project I've been working on since December finally airs tomorrow. [More:] It's a two-hour documentary called The Atlanta Child Murders, about the killings that happened in Atlanta in the late 1970s. I was lead video editor on the show.

It'll air tomorrow (Thursday June 10) on CNN at 8 PM (update: with a repeat at 11 PM) Eastern and Pacific, and then it'll repeat this Saturday and Sunday at 8 PM and (I think) 12 AM. Obviously, the show is probably not safe for impressionable youngsters, if you have any of those around.

So if you're near a TV with cable tomorrow night, check it out! :)

Also, I got interviewed for an online promo for the show (used in-house and on some websites, apparently, though I haven't been able to find out any details about that).

Is this something I would have to have a TV to...

Actually I don't have a TV, do you know if it will be available online? And yay, good for you!

Only very short excerpts, desjardins. And thanks!

I look forward to watching this, thanks for the heads up, BP. I'm trying to watch the promo and the video about Patrick Baltazar but I can't get them to load here at work, will have to wait until I get home. This is the first I've heard of Patrick, how sad. I want to know the particulars.

It must be cool to see something you worked long and hard on finally be ready for public consumption like this.

Awesome. Will set DVR.

Congratulations on your project hitting the air, BoringPostcards! I;m in the same boat as desjardins, so I'll have to settle for the excerpts. Will check 'em out this evening!

Oh, I vividly remember the Atlanta child murders -- that was all over the tv news for weeks and weeks. Really wish I could see the show! Congrats!

I wish I could see this where I live. Maybe it'll be shown on the Crime network or something at some point.

Ohhh, that looks good, BP! And so cool seeing you "live". I wanna steal your glasses.

Good on ye, lad!

In the early 80's I ran out of a 7th grade class (LA suburbs)after being bullied. Some kid came after me and said "Look what's happening to the kids being murdered". I didn't watch or read the news
so I had no idea until much later what he meant.

(Sadly I will not be anywhere near a TV tonight. But maybe I can get someone to record it for me.)
