I was quite disappointed by your cover choice of the Sept. 23-29 issue of TV Times. Vanessa Redgrave is a wonderful actress and I am sure she gave a convincing performance in "Orpheus Descending," but a real opportunity was missed by not prominently featuring Ken Burns' superlative PBS series "The Civil War" on your cover.
"The Civil War" is clearly a major achievement, and it is unfortunate that The Los Angeles Times did not salute PBS' achievement on this occasion. I appreciate the fact that The Times Calendar section had a prominent early story on this program which was even more of a reason for the TV Times to plan accordingly.
