DPI and SciFi Network to present "Battlestar Galactica: A Retrospective"

Through its newly established Creative Community Outreach Initiative (CCOI), the Department of Public Information (DPI) aims to partner with the international film and television industries to raise the profile of critical global issues....

In a second event organized by the CCOI this month, DPI and the Sci Fi Network will co-host a panel discussion in connection with final episode of the Battlestar Galactica (BSG) television series, on Tuesday, 17 March at 7 pm in the ECOSOC Chamber.

The discussion will explore some of the themes that are of importance to both the United Nations and the critically acclaimed television show: human rights, terrorism, children and armed conflict, and reconciliation and dialogue among civilizations and faiths.

The panel will be moderated by Academy Award-winning actress and producer Whoopi Goldberg. Oscar-nominated actress Mary McDonnell, Emmy Award-winning and Oscar-nominated actor Edward James Olmos, BSG creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore, and BSG creator David Eick will participate in the panel.

Why thank you!

It's from one of the many BSG parties I attended at Dragon*Con last summer.

And this is why I like working at the UN- we get into all sorts of crazy stuff. Maybe I'll see you there...

I love how every so often there’s a random influx of Total Awesome, like, “Oh, yeah, Ennio Morricone and a full orchestra are going to drop by.”
