Famed TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey visited Fairfield, Iowa, USA in October to interview students at Maharishi School, the Vedic Pandits, Mayor Ed Malloy, and others for a program that will air as part of a new series early next year.

The weekly primetime series, titled Oprah's Next Chapter, will premiere January 1 on OWN, Oprah's cable network, with the Fairfield documentary being among the first six episodes. The program will be shown on Sunday evenings at 8:00 p.m. US Central Time.

A press release for the new series says that ''Oprah steps outside of the studio for some riveting, enlightening, in-depth conversations with newsmakers, celebrities, thought leaders, and real-life families.''

Oprah's film crew spent several days on campus in advance of her visit, conducting interviews. She previewed the footage and arrived at Maharishi School having identified three students she wanted to interview further. . . .

She had also identified others she wanted to interview, and after leaving Maharishi School, she visited the Vedic Pandit campus in Maharishi Vedic City and interviewed some of the pandits via an interpreter. She also interviewed others in the community, including Mayor Ed Malloy.

Late in the afternoon she walked around the Fairfield square, greeting people. MUM students Baruti and Mina KMT-Sisouvong had the opportunity to chat with her in Café Paradiso.


Oprah then joined the group program in the Ladies Dome, practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique with the group for part of the time. An image from this group meditation has been among the six distributed as part of the initial publicity for the new series.
