Ted Koppel tackles security vs. liberty

September 10, 2006|By David Zurawik | David Zurawik,Sun Television Critic

No one in television news clarifies complicated issues better than Ted Koppel, and tonight at 8 on the Discovery Channel, he takes on one of the thorniest: how to find a balance between security and civil liberties in post-Sept. 11 America.

Viewers sifting through the crush of anniversary programming looking for one show that will best help them make sense of the fallout from the attacks of 2001 need look no further. Though engaging and slickly produced, Koppel on Discovery: The Price of Security is above all a public-affairs program that addresses viewers as citizens with the goal of informing them about the changing world in which they live.
