Dr. Kurt Schlichting on PBS: Monday, Feb. 4


The history series, American Experience, will air the documentary, "Grand Central," on PBS on Monday, from 9 to 10 p.m., based on a book by Kurt C. Schlichting, Ph.D., the E. Gerald Corrigan Chair in sociology and anthropology, at Fairfield University. The documentary was produced by award-winning filmmaker Michael Epstein ("The Battle Over Citizen Kane"), and tells the dramatic story of the famous landmark's construction through interviews with historians, architects and engineers, while weaving in contemporary portraits from present-day New Yorkers who describe their personal connections to Grand Central. Dr. Schlichting has a major on-screen role in the documentary and was filmed last summer.
