Around 1989 (maybe early 1990's), the PBS station during their fundraising drive would run a special (maybe multiple specials) by an economist who was a strong proponent of global trade. I think the name was Jim Peters but seemingly wrong since I can't find it on google. It was a white middle aged guy, neither fat nor slim. He stood on some sort of stage in darkened hall with mic in hand before a live audience.

I am looking for the guy's name, video links if you have them.

Thanks!
