    What I remember most about this show is that on each episode, they would read a chosen letter or two from viewers. This one thing stands out in my mind:

    During the Three Mile Island meltdown, they read a letter from a farmer in the area who lived in a spot designated "safe" by the authorities. But in the person's letter to Real People the farmer said that there was something that was really bothering them. Usually on the farm, there would be a number of flies that are normal for a farm.

    The writer said that there were no flies on the farm during the radiation leak, anywhere.

    Does anyone know what episode that is, and if there is a clip anywhere of the show broadcasting the letter?
