Public Access producers Robert Langley and Jean Waters gave a talk at a Babylon Green party gathering on how to have your own Public Access TV Show. The audience included several other public access producers who added their experience.

It was a long path for them to become the producers of two cable TV shows, "Just Peace!" and "Peace and Justice'.' Waters and Langley owe their initiation into the world of public access TV to a couple of good friends. Public Access Producer Bob Goldberg, quite a few years ago, had first increased their awareness of the availability of citizens' rights to present their interests and issues on public access TV. More recently, their progressive friend and peoples' advocate Brian O'Haire ignited their motivation to get started themselves. As he has done for others, O'Haire himself got Waters and Langley the correct forms, made x's, and asked them to sign on the dotted line. And, they obeyed as it seemed like the right time to do it, and because O'Haire promised to guide them and help them out when they got stuck.

Langley's involvement in the Long Island music scene and the pair's acquaintances with Long Island peace, community activist and special interest groups provided them with the impetus to begin their activities. They already had purchased a few movie cameras because they had recently been able to do some traveling. And, Waters had begun to record the gigs of the bands in which Langley plays. In order to spread the word, they distribute a fliers that describes the intent and the purpose of their shows. Though, they have found that performers and presenters are most receptive to being recorded when personally presented with the shows' agenda.
