UNC-TV to air documentary on environmental activists

North Carolina Public Television will launch a television documentary that profiles environmental heroes from North Carolina on Feb. 24 at 9:30 p.m.

Students and faculty from the School of Journalism are co-producing the program. Tom Linden, director of the medical and science journalism program at UNC, will serve as the show’s executive producer.

The documentary will profile Black Mountain, N.C., arborist Will Blozan, who is trying to control a hemlock tree-killing insect.
It will also profile Alex and Betsy Hitt, who practice sustainable agriculture at Peregrine Farm in Alamance County.

The show also documents the work of Diana Tetens, executive director of the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association in Durham. Tetens and her volunteer group are working to restore health to the creek, which flows from Durham to Falls Lake and supplies drinking water for nearly half a million people.
