Seeking Proposals for a New Documentary

Seeking Proposals for Cold War documentary

PBS North is seeking an independent producer for DULUTH IN THE COLD WAR (w.t.), a new documentary exploring the major role of Duluth and surrounding towns (like Finland, MN) during the Cold War. Brigadier General Raymond Klosowski joined the 179th Fighter Interception Squadron as a fighter pilot in 1963 – eventually becoming commander of the Minnesota Air National Guard. Raymond will be a key interview for this documentary, discussing the missile sites in our region as well as Duluth’s role as an early warning system for nuclear attack. Duluth was an epicenter for command and control to launch aircraft in the case of attack. This documentary will tell that story.
