TV Premiere of ‘The Revisionaries’ on PBS Next Monday

Don McLeroy and Cynthia Dunbar are coming to your home.

Relax. We don’t mean literally. No, we mean they’ll be there along with TFN in “The Revisionaries.” The critically-acclaimed and award-winning documentary that premiered in theaters last year is making its TV premiere Jan. 28, one week from today. And you also have a chance to help screen the director’s cut of the movie if you organize a group or represent an organization (more on that in a bit).

First, the TV details. “The Revisionaries” will premiere on TV, edited down for length as a one-hour film on PBS’ Independent Lens next Monday. For most people in Texas, the film will air at 9 p.m., but to be on the safe side and to verify on which channel, you should click here to check your local listings.

    Okay it looks like here it’ll be on Wednesday, January 30th at 8 PM on GPB Knowledge, channel 246 on Comcast.

    I’m gonna git me a big bowl of popcorn and a big box of Kleenex and sit down and watch. The popcorn is for the munchies, the Kleenex to soak up the tears of laughter.
