Buddha documentary premieres Wed, April 7, on PBS

A documentary on Buddha will premiere this Wed, April 7 at 8 p.m. EST on PBS. The documentary filmmaker, David Grubin, says, “We try to set his life in its historical context, but it’s so long ago that we don’t know what he really did…But what…matters is the story and the meaning of that story and the message of hope that the story carries. And so you won’t find in this film a searching for the historical Buddha. What do find is a great story with great interpreters of the story.”
