Timing and Cues

Each feed flows as a self-contained 59-minute program, but is formatted so that each 29-minute segments can air as a stand-alone half-hour program. The end of the first 29-minute segment flows into a billboard for the second half-hour, concluding with the phrase, "when Humankind continues in a moment." This is followed immediately by a :30 music bed for local ID, etc. The bed begins at 29:30. Second half of the program begins at 30:00 and concludes at 58:55 with the PRI audio logo.
