Video "The Public Square"

Sorry for the cross-posting, but someone of course needs this ASAP.

I have another wild-goose chase. A student wants me to find for her
research project a source for renting or buying a video of a PBS show (or
series?) called "The Public Square." It was produced by Peggy Noonan (or
Newman?), was on television "within the last few years" and included a
report on Father Newhouse. I called PBS, and they say they don't have it.
Does anyone know if it was ever available on video, and if so, where it
might be found now?

Since her information was so vague, I suppose it's possible that she
doesn't even have the correct title (& what else could be wrong? - how to
spell "Newhouse"?), so I'd be glad to accept suggestions if you know of
other titles that happen to fit this general description.

Thanks in advance to anyone who would like to take a guess on this.
