‘Beyond the Brink: California’s Watershed’ Available to All PBS Stations by Heather Engel Apr 14, 2020 Water News LOS ANGELES — The Chronicles Group, a multimedia non-profit organization, announced recently that its latest documentary, “Beyond the Brink: California’s Watershed,” will be available to PBS stations nationwide via the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA) starting May 16. The documentary shows the effect the climate crisis has had on the health of California’s forested watersheds and the resulting devastation. Through expert interviews, powerful imagery, and open-sourced journalism, the film narrative warns that there is little time to repair the damage. The film is directed by Executive Producer Jim Thebaut, narrated by DeDe Cordell of the Yuba Water Agency and features an interview with ACWA Executive Director Dave Eggerton. ACWA is also a co-sponsor of the film, which is available to view on ACWA’s website. “We are seeing the results of the climate crisis as it visibly, measurably impacts our water supply and, by extension, the forests that so depend on reliable year-round water,” Thebaut said. “While the world is facing unprecedented crises combating a global pandemic, the overarching issues of climate on humanity’s future can’t be overlooked or forgotten.” NETA is a professional association representing 275 public television broadcast member stations. Making the film available to PBS stations will help to better educate residents about this important issue.
