Formal request made to KBS to broadcast pro-Hwang documentary

For completeness, supporters of Hwang Woo-Suk have been calling for broadcast of a documentary by KBS television that raised questions as to whether Gerald Schatten, a professor at the University of Pittsburgh, stole patentable ideas from Hwang as they worked together on stem-cell cloning. So far, KBS has decided not to air the tape after previewing the footage because it was concerned about possible legal claims against unconfirmed evidence.

Note that KBS is distinct from MBC, which aired shows ADVERSE to Hwang Woo-Suk in 2005 (PD Notebook).
