Ooooh, I actually heard about this on NPR this morning! It sounds great, mushroom. You think possibly your local PBS isn't broadcasting it?

Use <a href="http://www.tvguide.com/listings/" target="_blank">this</a>. Its a guide from TV guide you can customize by your channel line up. You can do searches and look at listings in the future as well. I use it to keep track of when my favorite reality dating shows are on. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Kreeli, it's a documentary of the trial (and its aftermath) of those three men who bascially lynched James Byrd in Jasper, Texas back in the late 90's. The interesting thing is that there are two film crews, one white and one black. I've heard excellent reviews of it.

The dragged him to death, by chaning him to the back of their pickup. I think that I would rather have been lynched...

Was that the guy they chained and dragged behind the pickup truck?<br><br><br><br>
[edit]ok, posted this question at the same time an answer was posted, thanks[/edit]<br><br><br><br>
You have to wonder wtf is wrong with people to do something like that. I find it hard to understand what motivates people into such atrocities.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks for the heads up... I'd like to see this documentary as well.

Right, I just considered that a form of modern day lynching. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Do the two film crews present different perspectives on the acting going on? Do you know which crew is filming a particular scene? Why does it matter if the producer decides how the whole thing's going to run together, anyway?

It is not acted, it is a documentary. A black man and a white man had been friends a long time, yet had never really discussed race. Then the killing happened and together they made the documentary...one talking to blacks, the other to whites - hence "two Jaspers"<br><br>
I am going to make my sons stay downstairs long enough to watch it with the fogies tomorrow...

Err whoops, I missed it the first time when FemmeDemonica mentioned that it was a documentary.
