Problems with Pollution and Cancer in Toms River, NJ

Friday, May 24, 2013

Dan Fagin tells how a small New Jersey town was ravaged by industrial pollution. When a cluster of childhood cancers was scientifically linked to air and water pollution in Toms River, it spurred a decades-long struggle that culminated in 2001 with one of the largest legal settlements on toxic dumping. Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation is about the residents' fight for justice and about the pioneering scientists and physicians who first identified pollutants as a cause of cancer.

Isn't this, as well as all of today's other segments, being rebroadcast from previously aired shows?

Shouldn't this be made clear on the web site, as has been done in the past?
