WETA, which oversaw production of the America at a Crossroads series, will make an uncensored version of one of the films, Operation Homecoming, available to stations that request it but hasn’t publicized the offering, reports the Los Angeles Times. PBS will only offer a sanitized version of the film depicting soldiers’ war stories, some of which include profanity. “Our policy, in the name of trying to eliminate errors so a station doesn’t unwittingly punch up the wrong version, is to keep it relatively clean and straightforward,” said John Wilson, PBS programming chief. The film is scheduled for 10 p.m. Monday, which falls within the FCC’s “safe harbor” for edgy content, but will air an hour earlier in the central time zone.
