The program, Islam vs. Islamists, was rejected for national broadcast by PBS due to production and content concerns. The program's producer felt those concerns were not valid and would not make requested changes.
Islam vs. Islamists is now being made available for broadcast to individual public stations.
Georgia Public Broadcasting convened a group of experts on Islam to seek advice on the program's content. Those experts took issue with some of the elements within it. But they also felt the program included information important for Georgians to know of and understand.
GPB aired Islam vs. Islamists in that context and it was followed by a discussion of the content within it among several Georgia Islamic experts.
Program originally aired on August 28, 2007
