FULL FOCUS

Welcome to the archive for Full Focus, a documentary program that aired for several years on KBTC. Producer-host Daniel Kopec was responsible for the bulk of the Full Focus programs with additional programs toward the end of the show's run produced by Forrest Burger and Tom Layson. Many Full Focus programs have not been converted to digital media for viewing on the Internet, but as time an resources allow, the goal is to make more programs available.
