Peter Jennings’ Final Doc. To Air Dec. 15

Peter Jennings Reporting” will return to ABC on Thursday, Dec. 15.

“Breakdown — America’s Health Insurance Crisis” was the last documentary Peter reported before his death. “Over the course of Peter’s long career at ABC News he made more than 60 prime-time documentaries, many of them covering public health issues,” EP Tom Yellin says. “He had planned for this broadcast to be the first of a series confronting the problems in the American healthcare system — a subject he believed was critical to all Americans.”

“Peter conducted most of the interviews for ‘Breakdown’ in the months before he learned he had lung cancer; the broadcast was written and edited while he underwent treatment. Peter’s voice was not strong enough to narrate the program, but, as you will see, it is still very much Peter Jennings Reporting.”
