The tenth hour of the 25th anniversary of viewer calls focused on the year 1989 and on the role of the U.S. in the world. Mr. Hitchens talked about U.S. foreign policy over the past decades, military operations in the Persian Gulf War and current efforts in Iraq, and the challenges to U.S. foreign policy since the end of the Cold War and in the future. He also responded to questions and comments from viewers. 

An interview with 25th anniversary essay contest finalist Christina Carlson of Lihue, Hawaii, and clips from previous programming were aired. 

The program was part of a 25-hour call-in marathon commemorating 25 years of viewer calls that began with television’s first-ever, regularly scheduled, national viewer call-in program on October 7, 1980, when the 19-month-old network televised a live viewer call-in program from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. close
