FBS HAS TWO WORTHY SPECIALS THIS week. In Families First (Wed., March 25, 9 P.M. ET) Bill Moyers looks at programs that try to work with families in crisis (from drugs, physical abuse, etc.) rather than placing the children in the overburdened foster-care system. Such family-preservation programs exist in 37 states.
Faith Under Fire (Tues., March 31, 10 P.M. ET) is filmmaker DeWitt Sage's stirring study of how clergy and their flocks dealt—in some cases meekly, in many instances heroically—with 40 years of repressive Communist rule in Eastern Europe.
