PBS to Carry Expos Games This Season

Issue #40

PBS has agreed to carry 50 Montreal Expos games this season, with the hope of diversifying its programming. "There are many forms of wildlife that frequently inhabit Olympic Stadium," explains French cinematographer/director Jean Rousseau, who will film the games with a crew of 20 that is expected to outnumber the amount of fans in the stands. "Sometimes there are pigeons and squirrels and cats on the field. I think we will be serving sports fans and nature lovers alike by broadcasting these games."

While a portion of each broadcast will be dedicated to the events transpiring at the plate, PBS plans to have pledge drive breaks in the tops of the 3rd, 6th and 9th innings. "Anyone who pledges $150 will get a free cap and program for that day's game -- worth an estimated $8.00," boasts PBS spokesman Charles Nelson Reilly.

Doing play by play of Expos games will be Bill Moyers and Charlie Rose.
