Discovery Health Tackles Child Abuse


Discovery Health Channel plans to premiere a two-hour documentary Monday
dealing with child sex-abuse issues.

Close to Home, hosted by David Schwimmer (Friends) and narrated by
Robin Quivers (The Howard Stern Show),profiles both child-abuse
survivors and convicted sex offenders.

Also featured during the documentary are actual group-therapy sessions in
which convicted sex offenders discuss the strategies they practice to pursue
their victims, the network said.

The special -- which the network is co-promoting with Prevent Child Abuse
America -- coincides with Child Abuse Prevention Month.
