KCTS 9, the largest public TV station in the Pacific Northwest, recently produced three, one-hour specials to help Washington residents deal with the local effects of the financial crisis — focusing on unemployment, housing and personal finance. These specials were also translated and shown on V-me, KCTS's digital Spanish-language channel. If you missed the series, called "Tough Times," you can watch the episodes online.
Note: We had trouble viewing the Web site on our office computers, but you should be able to see the profiles of panelists if you scroll down further. From there, you can click on links to watch the videos.
