PROGRAM NOTE: MSNBC PRESENTS "OPERATION YELLOW RIBBON" HOSTED BY TOM BROKAW, SATURDAY 12-1 PM AND SUNDAY 1-2 PM

MSNBC will telecast "Operation Yellow Ribbon" this Saturday, 12-1 p.m. ET and Sunday, 1-2 p.m. ET, hosted by NBC News' Tom Brokaw. Originally broadcast during NBC's coverage of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games, "Operation Yellow Ribbon" is the story of the town of Gander, Newfoundland where, on September 11, 2001, 38 jumbo jets carrying nearly 7,000 passengers were diverted. In September 2009, Brokaw traveled to Gander with several of the grateful Americans, including the parents of a New York City firefighter who was an emergency responder at the World Trade Center; a retired Ohio State administrator who was so inspired by Canadian hospitality she helped to organize a scholarship fund for local students; and a Texas woman and British man who found true love during that fateful week in September 2001.

"Operation Yellow Ribbon" was produced by the NBC Olympics Feature & Documentary Unit headed by Vice President & Creative Director Mark Levy.
