CNN to broadcast Blair Mountain documentary Sunday August 14th at 8 PM EDT
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- On Sunday evening, CNN will broadcast a new hour-long documentary -- "Battle For Blair Mountain" -- about ongoing disputes regarding mountaintop-removal mining near the historic site of the 1921 battle between 10,000 union miners and company guards from Logan County.

In making the documentary, Soledad O'Brien spoke to people on all sides of the issue, often focusing on a recent decision by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to deny a permit to Spruce Mine No. 1, near the town of Sharples in Logan County at the bottom of Blair Mountain.

Arch Coal was planning to begin operating what would have become the largest mountaintop-removal mine in the state.

Sunday's broadcast will begin at 8 p.m. CNN also will rebroadcast the new documentary about Blair Mountain on Aug. 20 at 8 p.m.
