“A Chilling Report on Several Fronts”

October 11, 2011

That’s The Baltimore Sun‘s David Zurawik on The Anthrax Files, our season premiere airing tonight on PBS (check local listings or watch it now online).

So what’s the film about? Michael Kirk, producer of The Anthrax Files and Dr. Claire Fraser-Liggett, whose lab made one of the scientific breakthroughs in the investigation, discussed the film and FBI’s controversial investigation of the 2001 anthrax attacks on The Takeaway this morning, including the pressure investigators were under to make a break in the case and the lessons we’ve learned since.
