Animal Rights NOW!
Cable access shows are an effective way to reach a
large audience. Phyllis Bedford, the volunteer producer of Animal Rights
NOW!, a cable access show in Atlanta, Ga., regularly shows graphic footage
from inside animal research laboratories and on factory farms, coverage of
animal rights protests, interviews with individuals in the animal rights
movement, and more.
Animal Rights NOW! is in its sixth consecutive season
thanks to Phyllis' dedication and persistence. Since the station grants air
time on a first come, first awarded basis, Phyllis camps out in front of the
station's door before 6:30 a.m. on the first day the station accepts
applications. Because the office doesn't even open until 10 a.m., she
usually beats out the other producers and is assured air time for the next
"I'd really like to encourage other activists to check
into getting a show on their cable access station," says Phyllis. "PETA is
so generous with their video resources that it makes it easy to expose
animal suffering that is normally hidden from the public. And if the public
doesn't know the problem exists, change is not likely to happen."
