Documentary taped at Stanford to be shown on local cable TV

STANFORD -- A one-hour documentary taped at Stanford University will be shown on a local public access cable television station Tuesday, June 7, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on the Mid-Peninsula Access Corporation's Channel 6.

Channel 6 is available to basic cable subscribers in Atherton, East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Palo Alto and Stanford.

Entitled "Education in Ignorance," the video features personal accounts from people who were involved in a series of recent incidents - including a three-day hunger strike in May by Chicano students and the vandalism of the outdoor artwork Gay Liberation.

The show also focuses on the aftermath of the layoff of a Chicana administrator, Cecilia Burciaga, including a confrontation between students from the Stanford Review and Jose Antonio Burciaga at the Chicano theme house where the Burciagas serve as resident fellows.

The program will be repeated at a later date. For more information, call Jenny Rabin, producer, at MPAC (415) 494-8686.
