WRAL-TV will air its sixth installment of the Focal Point documentary series on Thursday, April 21, 2005, at 7:30pm. “Focal Point: Space Available” examines the controversial NC Global TransPark and why the project has failed to live up to expectations.
WRAL-TV Anchor/Reporter Cullen Browder hosts this 30-minute inspection of the project that began with great expectations in 1991. Over the years the Global Transpark project has been plagued by permitting delays, management problems and scandal and has failed to live up to its promise.
“Space Available” takes a realistic look at the past, present and future of the Global Transpark in Kinston, asking the people who operate the GTP why the project has failed to live up to expectations and what they are doing about it. It will also ask key policymakers, including the Governor, whether it’s time to pull the plug on the GTP and if not, how the state can finally make the project succeed.
