2-14-12 The Adventists Documentary Returns to PBS Stations
 Gabriel Award winning documentary by Doblmeier on PBS for two more years
Dr. Len Bailey and Baby David  
The critically acclaimed documentary film The ADVENTISTS returns to PBS stations for an additional two years beginning April 2012. Originally released in April 2010, the film was widely broadcast on PBS stations, won the prestigious Gabriel Award as the best film on a topic of religion, and has become a national best-selling DVD.
"We are delighted the program has been invited to return to PBS stations for two more years," says filmmaker Martin Doblmeier, who also produced BONHOEFFER, The Power of Forgiveness, and more than 25 documentary films on faith and spirituality. "It will give millions of viewers another chance to see an inspiring story and explore the connections between religion and healthy living, faith and healing."
The ADVENTISTS tells the story of Seventh-day Adventists, an American-born religion whose members are living up to 10 years longer than most Americans. Adventists run many of the country's more progressive hospitals and health care facilities, all based on the idea that the body is the "temple of God" and health care work is "sacred work."
Also profiled in the film is Dr. Leonard Bailey of Baby Fae fame, as he performs an open-heart transplant to save the life of a dying infant.

The ADVENTISTS is a presentation of SCETV and distributed by American Public Television. For more information about the film visit: http://journey1.timberlakepublishing.com/content.asp?contentid=884
