LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A two-hour documentary tracing the roots of Los Angeles' 1992 riots will air on ABC April 28, one day before the 25th anniversary of its outbreak, the network announced today.
 
``Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992,'' is directed and produced by Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley and is being made in partnership with ABC News' Lincoln Square Productions.
 
``Let It Fall'' examines the tensions across the city for the decade before the riots, according to ABC. It will include interviews with eyewitnesses and people directly involved in the events from diverse neighborhoods across the city, including black, white, Hispanic, Korean and Japanese-Americans.
