The Video Blizzard of '86: Bravo Breslin

by Bob Brewin

The Village Voice, Jan. 6, 1987, v. 32, no. 1, p. 46

The late-night television program Jimmy Breslin's People will be canceled by ABC. Jimmy Breslin used television as a visual medium and let the pictures tell the story, often with no dialogue or narration. A recent episode of the show produced by Jimmy Breslin and Sian Evans, was a powerful and sensitive piece on those buried in New York's Potter's Field, and raised the story to the level of "a moving essay on the human condition".
