KCOS, El Pasoís PBS Station, and Capstone Productions Inc. announce the broadcast premiere of "Last Tour of the El Paso Smelter, Volume 1 The Stacks" on El Pasoís PBS station on Channel 13 over-the-air and on cable.
The one-hour TV documentary takes viewers inside the former Asarco smelter, an American industrial giant that was shut down in 1999, with never before seen footage of its fiery furnaces in operation. The program also goes inside the smelterís towering 828-foot smokestack, a place few people have seen, and no one will ever see again. Both of the smelterís smokestacks were demolished in 2013.
This live pledge event will feature additional commentary from the filmmaker, Jackson Polk and opportunities to donate and support public broadcasting.
