This show is produced to inform Texas viewers about the issues of law and fact that affect Texans and Texas Families. Our whole premise is that the facts of life are the moving forces of the law. The law is a reflection of the way people act. If people did not steal, there would be no law against it. It's that simple. Everyone's actions impel the law. Tune in each week and see for yourself. You deserve to know about your legal system, good, bad, warts, human behavior, controls, behavior that needs control. We try to specialize in one topic of the law every week. We discuss more issues about an area of people's legal (illegal-unlawful) behavior in one 30 minute show than politicians discuss in an entire election year. You watch, and you'll see. No other show is like it. This show is local. Wish we had more time to devote to it. Can you help?
If your programmer of your cable company needs a quality 30 minute show, with time for commercial inserts, Texas Lawyers' TV is available for licensing, call Broadway Video Studio at 903-581-7883 for details.
