FRONTLINE |”The Silence” Excerpt | PBS

www.pbs.org “The police were not called. Even when there was an eyewitness to the abuse,” attorney Ken Roosa tells FRONTLINE in “The Silence,” airing April 19. FRONTLINE investigates the sex abuse of Native Americans by priests and other church workers in Alaska. “The Silence” is the first of two FRONTLINE magazine segments airing Apr 19. FRONTLINE examines a little-known chapter of the Catholic Church sex abuse story — decades of abuse of Native Americans by priests and other church workers in Alaska. Through candid interviews with survivors, this FRONTLINE report focuses on the abuse by a number of men who worked for the Church along Alaska’s far west coast in the late 1960s and early 1970s. All told, they would leave behind a trail of hundreds of claims of abuse, making this one of the hardest hit regions in the country. As part of FRONTLINE’s new magazine program, The Silence airs as the lead segment on Tuesday, April 19, 2011, at 9 PM ET on PBS. Watch on air and online beginning Tuesday, April 19 at 9 pm ET on PBS (check local listings) www.pbs.org
