Bill Moyers Responds to Chemical Industry Attack on Investigative Report
Based On Confidential Industry Documents

'TRADE SECRETS' Premieres on PBS on March 26 From 9-11 P.M.

NEW YORK, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- ``TRADE SECRETS: A Moyers Report'' is a
two-hour program that lays out an historical record of chemical industry
behavior and devotes 30 minutes, 25% of the broadcast, to a panel discussion
of issues such as what scientists know about the health effects of
chemicals,  how fully chemicals are tested before they come to market,
worker safety and  whether the public is fully informed about chemicals and
their impact on personal health.

The portion of the program that lays out the historical record is based on
the industry's own words, preserved in black and white in confidential
industry documents that the public was never supposed to see.

The panel discussion, which will be produced live-to-tape the afternoon of
the program premiere, includes two representatives of the chemical industry,
a representative of the public health sector, and a representative of an
environmental organization.
