I don’t know if you have been following all the “Waco” TV coverage. 2018 marks 25 years so there are a slew out outlets with specials, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and A&E I know about and I have interviewed with most of them. I think many of you know I published a book, with Gene Gallagher, in 1995, Why Waco (UC Berkeley University Press), still in print, and testified before Congress in 1995. I also spoke with Janet Reno in 1995, after the disaster, when she visited our campus.
The main event, getting massive publicity, is of course the six part scripted series “Waco” on Paramount TV (formerly Spyke TV), Wednesday evenings at 10pm EST in which I in fact have a character—well at least a “composite” character—I am known as Dr. Arnold Tabor (so Phil Arnold’s role can be combined with my own!). So far the series has been really well done in my view. The third episode aired last Wednesday so there are three to go. There are major actors involved, including Taylor Kitsch and Michael Shannon. After each episode there are short segments interview with the “real” characters. You can catch these on Youtube or with the Paramount App—they are called Revelations of Waco . Mine was last week but I think I will be in the next two as well. Here is the master link, that connects to the rest:
