On September 9th, hundreds of PBS stations across the United States will air Milking the Rhino, the award-winning 2008 Kartemquin film by David E. Simpson and Jeannie Magill. The film will then stream for free for 30 days on the PBS website. Check here to see if your PBS station is showing the film.
The re-broadcast of the documentary about community-based conservation in Kenya and Namibia will take place through PBS' "Global Voices 500" season, with many affiliates carrying the film on the WORLD channel. In 2009, the film originally aired on PBS Independent Lens to great acclaim, and has played in 25 countries on six continents, winning major awards worldwide.
PBS now has over 63 stations that subscribe to WORLD, including stations in top markets around the country such as WNET/WLIW in New York, KOCE in Los Angeles, WHYY in Philadelphia, KERA in Dallas, WGBH in Boston, and KAET in Phoenix.
After September 9th, Milking the Rhino will also be available for free online streaming on PBS's video portal as part of the Global Voices Collection for 30 days.
