    The Emmy Award winning This Old House is the television's premier home improvement series. The show that unlocked America's passions for home, celebrates its 25th anniversary season on PBS this year. This Old House's mission is to demystify the home improvement process and to celebrate the fusion on old world craftsmanship and modern technology. Each season features two renovation projects. Project One traditionally consists of eighteen or more so episodes and is filmed in Massachusetts. Project Two is taped in a different region of the country to highlight the variety of American architectural styles and renovation issues. Additionally, the second project is generally located in a town with a mild climate where outdoor work can be undertaken in the winter months. New episodes of This Old House are broadcast exclusively on PBS. Vintage, off-network episodes of the series, entitled This Old House Classics, air on Home and Garden Television network (HGTV), Do It Yourself network (DIYnet) and on selected commercial broadcast stations around the country (Syndicated). This Old House can be seen in the UK on Discovery Home & Leisure and on Australia's Lifestyle Channel. America's favorite home improvement series just got even better. The new This Old House Hour, exclusively on PBS, starts off each week with a new episode of the latest This Old House project.

    Bill Moyers: Genesis – A Living Conversation is a PBS original mini-series that explores the first book in the Bible. From creation, Adam and Eve, Noah and the flood, Abraham and Isaac, to Joseph's exile in Egypt, the book of Genesis contains some of the most popular stories in the whole Bible. Studied by Jews, Christians, and Muslims for thousands of years, to this day, the stories told in Genesis continue to captivate minds and inspire many millions of people. Bill Moyers: Genesis – A Living Conversation aims to do exactly what the title lays out, converse and explore this ancient text. In the words of Bill Moyers himself, "In this series we've invited people of different opinions to talk about these old stores. Not for the sake of consensus, or even debate, but for the experience itself." Renowned for his journalistic skills and integrity, Bill Moyers is the perfect host and guide to the first book of the Bible which often contain stories that lack happy endings, leaving readers with difficult questions and much to think about.moreless
