Utah NOW Show Archives: December 2008 Shows
This week on Utah NOW, an encore presentation. We're profiling the Body World's exhibit now on display in Salt Lake City. The show uses real cadavers stripped of their fat and skin and arranged in poses. It's giving us an opportunity to explore our cultural, religious and artistic impressions of the human body - dead and alive.
This week on Utah NOW we're exploring the role of private contractors in the modern American military. This is the story of the five former Blackwater guards who've been accused of killing 14 unarmed civilians in Iraq. We're talking about the case and the questions of accountability in the confusion of a war zone. (Photo: Courtesy Rick Egan, The Salt Lake Tribune)
