Bullets flying. Choking teargas. Angry crowds chanting for justice. Eleven dead people, five of them children. This is the epic true story of the intrepid journalists of a Philadelphia television news department whose creativity and dedication brought the 1985 MOVE disaster to a live television audience despite daunting logistics. Told through the eyes of the field producer who coordinated much of the live coverage, Liveshot documents the step by step process the news staff of WCAU-TV followed to research the story, plan coverage and, most importantly, improvise as the story unfolded. The incredible team work of the reporters in the field, producers and editors in the newsroom and the managers in charge earned WCAU the Columbia-Dupont Award for excellence in journalism.  Harvey Clark, Karen Fox, Larry Kane, Jay Newman and author Tom Kranz shared in that award. Now, you can too.
