A Moyers Report

TRADE SECRETS: A MOYERS REPORT is an investigation of the history of the chemical revolution and the companies that drove it and how companies worked to withhold vital information about the risks from workers, the government, and the public. Journalist Bill Moyers and producer Sherry Jones rely on an archive of documents the public was never meant to see - documents that reveal the industry's early knowledge that some chemicals could pose dangers to human health that were not disclosed at the time.

But the documentary also reports a much larger story a never- before-told account of a campaign to limit the regulation of toxic chemicals and any liability for their effects.

Today, every man, woman and child has synthetic chemicals in their bodies. No child is born free of them. Are they safe? Does anyone know? What is the industry doing to keep us fully informed about the health and safety effects of chemicals? These are the crucial questions raised by the documentary and addressed in a panel discussion moderated by Bill Moyers in the program's final half hour.
