Pubcasting documentaries feature Nobel Peace Prize winners

Two of the latest Nobel Peace laureates, announced on Oct. 7, are profiled in public broadcasting documentaries. Pray the Devil Back to Hell, one of the five-part Women, War and Peace series, premieres tonight (Oct. 11) on PBS (check local listings for times), and tells the story of Liberian peace activist Leymah Gbowee. And Johnson Sirleaf is one of the Iron Ladies of Liberia on Independent Lens. Both docs are part of the public media initiative Women and Girls Lead from ITVS, PBS and CPB, a three-year television and outreach campaign.
