On the April 12th edition of The New York Times Close Up, Sam Roberts talks with Times National Correspondent for higher education Richard Perez-Pena about the increasing competition for the top colleges despite the increased cost – the subject of his front page article this week and his cover story in this Sunday's Education Life.
The writer and actor Harvey Fierstein describes the play "Casa Valentina," now in previews, and the subject of Patrick Healy's cover story in this week's Arts and Leisure section.
The lawyer and writer Philip K. Howard returns with his latest book, "The Rule of Nobody: Saving America From Dead Laws and Broken Government."
Times Senior Editor Sam Sifton and NYTimes.com looks at how to make pizza dough from scratch at home.
And the Times Reporters Roundtable convenes.
Produced in association with The New York Times, The New York Times Close Up gives viewers an inside preview of the most compelling reports from Sunday's Times, with the correspondents who filed the stories.
The show is hosted by New York Times Urban Affairs Correspondent Sam Roberts, and features Times reporters, columnists and editors examining the week's top New York City stories.
The hour-long program airs each Saturday at 10 p.m. and repeats each Sunday at 10 a.m.
