From Steve Eidelman, Executive Director of The Arc of the United States
PBS Documentary Countdown! Six weeks
Debuts Tuesday, Feb. 15 nationwide

Welcome to 2005. It's going to be a breakout year! Mark Sunday, Feb. 20 at 11pm on your calendar for the PBS nationwide broadcast debut of "ON A ROLL: Family,Disability and The American Dream." Five years in the making, this award-winning documentary is an honest, insightful and sometimes brutal portrait of radio talk show host, Greg Smith, a man who refuses to allow his severe disability to keep him from living the American Dream. Greg is very excited about the film and what it can do to help people with disabilities get a bigger slice of the media pie. Read his recent article "Disability Culture: Ready for Prime Time?" Then, call your local PBS station and demand "On A Roll!"
