Description: Episode #26 OBD: 1964-03-30 TRT: 30 min Description: AT ISSUE cameras crews will report on-the-spot from Caracas, Venezuela, for the first-hand look at that country’s reaction to last Thursday’s (March 19) report of a possible shift of U.S. policy toward Latin America rightist and military dictatorships. The reported policy change involves continued forceful opposition to Communist dictatorships such as Cuba, but the U.S. would no longer attempt to punish military juntas for overthrowing democratic regimes. This reversal of the Kennedy policy is designed to avoid involvement in domestic political crises in Latin-American republics, according to the Senate Department officials. AT ISSUE public affairs teams will probe the response of Venezuela toward this policy by interviewing top government officials of the country, journalist, leading businessmen, and some students. Host: George Sherman, former Latin American correspondent for the Washington Evening Star, and now state department correspondent for the newspaper. AT ISSUE A 1964 National Educational Television production Executive producer: Alvin Perlmutter Producer: Leonard Zweig
