TERRORISM SHOW WILL BE UPDATED
A documentary about terrorism, scheduled to air Wednesday night, will be updated to include the hijacking of a TWA airliner by Shia Muslim militants, a spokeswoman for CBS said Monday.
“Terrorism: War in the Shadows,” anchored by Walter Cronkite, is due to air Wednesday at 10 p.m. (Channels 2 and 8). It examines how the problem of terrorism has been growing around the globe and what the United States is trying to do to combat it.
And, even more pertinent to the TWA incident, in which the Arab hijackers demanded the release of Lebanese prisoners in Israel, Cronkite also traveled to the Middle East to report on the terrorism problem in that part of the world.
