This series, not to be confused with the show on CNN, offered a more civilized debate on the issues of the day. In one format, a panel of experts took questions from a studio audience. In the other format, a debate took place featuring two advocates and two challengers. After the cases were presented, the chairman summarized the ideas of both parties and then asked the audience to decide who had the stronger argument. These four shows were considered a companion to Citizens’ Forum.

Producers: Art Stinson and Cliff Solway
