RARA-AVIS: Re: Homicide: Life On The Streets

Thu, 15 Apr 1999 13:36:57 -0700 This documentary/actual show combo was aired on sundry public tv
stations last year (and is probably still being shown). Unfortunately,
Court TV isn't a cable option in San Francisco. The documentary did a
better job than the show in describing the complexity of the physical
circumstances the trapped endured until his death. It was terrific
watching how the creators took an idea gleamed from an HBO taxi special
and developed it into a tight show with excellent momentum.
