January 9, 2017: TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

January 10, 2017 at 5:31 am

Governor Cuomo bucks tradition, and takes his show on the road to deliver six separate State of the State speeches over the next three days starting in Manhattan. We’ve got the details of what he said. Next, it’s a question that stretches from Indian Point, New York to Fukushima, Japan: just how do we contain tons of nuclear waste and prevent a catastrophe for future generations? The scary scenarios are ahead in the PBS Independent Lens documentary, Containment. Finally, on this night in 1983, inmates held guards hostage at Sing Sing prison. We look back at that siege and why it still matters.
