The Cronkite Report: The Faltering Dream (The Discovery Channel, 8-9 p.m.): I've heard Walter Cronkite acknowledge that he feels more than a little unhappy over CBS's failure to make better use of him after he left ``The CBS Evening News'' more than a decade ago. After all, he had been a CBS correspondent for 31 years, the last 19 spent as anchor and managing editor of ``The Evening News,'' and during that time was named in a U.S. News and World Report survey as ``the most influential person in broadcasting.''

But at least the network's oversight does give him time to make specials like this one, a documentary - hosted by Cronkite - that assesses race relations 30 years after Martin Luther King Jr.'s ``I Have a Dream'' speech. Focusing on the growing number of African-Americans who choose to live in their own communities, the program examines America's efforts at integration. It speaks with residents - from both the inner city and the affluent suburbs - around Washington, D.C., and with students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. African-American leaders like the Rev. Jesse Jackson and filmmaker Spike Lee are also interviewed.
