After Newtown

Program explores all sides of tragic school shooting and its aftermath

Friday, Dec. 21, 2012

Watch Preview: After Newtown on PBS. See more from After Newtown.

One week after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, PBS continues its participation in the national conversation begun in Friday’s PBS Newshour coverage by bringing together its news and public affairs teams in a joint effort to analyze and illuminate the issues. After Newtown airs Friday, Dec. 21 at 9/8 pm on KET.

After Newtown will address access to guns and the politics of gun laws, mental illness in young adults, the science of detecting violent impulses, and how communities react to unspeakable tragedy and begin to heal. The question of how to respond to this tragedy faces all of us: government at all levels, educators and mental health professionals, the media and individual Americans.

The broadcast will be anchored by Gwen Ifill and will include a number of key studio interviews as well as a conversation with regular contributors to Washington Week.
