In the case of “The Soldier’s Heart,” legal assessment indicates that this program will be more difficult to defend before the FCC than the case presented in “A Company of Soldiers,” where expletives were used in the heat of battle.
PBS and FRONTLINE urge stations that usually carry FRONTLINE at 9 p.m. local time to carry the edited version of “The Soldier’s Heart” at their usual time. For those stations that normally air FRONTLINE at 10 p.m. or later, PBS will also make available the unedited version. Any PBS station broadcasting the unedited program prior to 10 p.m. local time does so at its own legal and financial risk.
If your stations doesn't air the uncensored version, it will be online later this week.
