METROFOCUS: FEBRUARY 26, 2019

February 27, 2019 at 5:30 am

An ambitious housing program offers afflicted New Yorkers a better life by moving them out of institutions and into private homes. Frontline, in partnership with ProPublica, investigates how this sudden independence has proven deadly. We have their findings. In an era when racial segregation defined the south, 2 little league teams, one black and one white, stepped onto the field and helped change the game forever. More than 60 years later, the players reunite to discuss the momentous game. From the big screen to the great white way. The anchor desk takes the stage in the Broadway adaptation of the Oscar-winning film “Network.” One of the show’s stars Tatiana Maslany joins us tonight.

Aired on February 26, 2019.
