Belmont, Romney Highlighted in PBS Frontline Documentary Tonight
Part of the network's on-going election coverage.
The independent film crew was in Belmont last month filming locations in Belmont for a special televised event on Public Television.
And tonight at 9 p.m., the end result will be broadcast when PBS's Frontline program presents "The Choice 2012," a two-hour documentary on President Obama and Mitt Romney that "journeys into the places, people, and decisive moments that made the men who are competing for the presidency," according to a description of the program.
The Romney section will discuss his involvement and life in Belmont concentrating on his leadership in the local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
"Hundreds of hours of research and dozens of original interviews reveal new details and fresh insights about the two candidates — and our choice this November," according to the program's web page.
The crew that filmed the "B-roll" – those incidental scenes about town that are voiced over with narrative – stopped in Belmont Center and the LDS Temple on Belmont Hill.
Frontline is produced by WGBH Boston and is broadcast nationwide on PBS.
