Donna Hamilton, husband produce show on peace

June 21, 1991|By Eric Adams

An article in the Today section yesterday listed an incorrect time for "The Peacemakers" on Channel 13. The show airs at 7 p.m. Sunday.

An alternative look at the Middle East situation will be presented Sunday night at 8 on Channel 13 with "The Peacemakers," a documentary by former "Evening Magazine" host Donna Hamilton and her husband, David Paulson, who have created the Mockingbird Company, an independent TV production firm.

In the wake of U.S. efforts to orchestrate a post-Gulf War peace conference in the Middle East, the show focuses on the subdued voices within Israel that speak out for peace and understanding between the conflicting cultures. Despite centuries-old hostilities, peace between Arabs and Jews, they say, is not only possible, but is necessary for the region's growth and prosperity.


During Passover and Easter observances, Ms. Hamilton, who is also the show's host, traveled to Israel and interviewed authors, philosophers and teachers, reporting their views from historic sites in the Holy Land. Among those featured are Rabbi David Hartman, a philosopher, teacher and political advisor, and Israeli author Amos Oz.

This is the first production for the Mockingbird Company, which is owned by Ms. Hamilton and her husband, a former reporter and bureau chief at WJLA in Washington.
