    It is an epic overflowing with heroes and hopefuls, scoundrels and screwballs. It is a saga spanning the quest for racial justice, the clash of labor and management, the transformation of popular culture, the limits of legality, and the unfolding of the national pastime. It is history as witnessed from the sun-drenched fields of small-town America and the gritty, makeshift diamonds of urban sandlots. Here is the story of a nation at work and play. Here is your story. Experience it anew in ten thrilling "innings" from master storyteller and award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns.moreless

    This PBS one-hit wonder features former Playboy stars Audrey and Judy Landers, leading the "Buggsters" on adventures through learning, from various life lessons (expressing your feelings, good hygiene habits, good sportsmanship, etc.) and topics of children's interest (farm animals, dinosaurs, music, etc.), with some help from the mascots:

    UNCLE HUGGABUG - a four-armed blue bug, with a cowboy hat (and twang, to boot), who enjoys a good "power-packed hug"

    MISS OOPS-A-DAISY - a clumsy pink flower who reminds kids that making mistakes is OK, though she makes some herself

    AUNTIE BUMBLE - a grandmotherly bee, who explains friendship, caring, and other values to the Buggsters

    LOVEY-DOVEY - a Jamaican dove (tells the story, but nothing more)

    It appeared on select PBS stations, such as WLVT (Lehigh Valley, PA) and WNYE (Brooklyn, NY), from 1995-2001. It can still be seen today on KTV (a Christian channel).

    Roadtrip Nation is a PBS television series (and grassroots movement) that lets young people and students travel across America to interview men and women who have become leaders in their own ways and who have inspired others. Its first season aired in 2004. The show formulated as an idea between four friends in 2001 fresh out of college: Mike, Nathan, Brian and Amanda. They decided to get an old RV, paint it green and travel the country looking for inspiring people to interview. They realized that every young person wants to know what they'll do with their own lives, so they decided to go and ask others who have done what they have wanted to do within their life! The young travellers in Roadtrip Nation interview entertainers, entrepreneurs, artists and scientists; all who have not given in to conformity and have become successful by going their own way. The show is as free spirited and adventurous as its young travellers themselves are! It has lasted seven seasons so far.moreless

    PBS NewsHour is the long running news magazine broadcast every weeknight on PBS. The show was created by veteran newsmen Robert MacNeil and Jim Lehrer, and has been on the air since 1975. In 2009, the show previously known as The NewsHour With Jim Lehrer became The PBS NewsHour. This updated version also featured co-anchors, something that hadn't been implemented since the mid 90's when MacNeil co-anchored. Current correspondents and contributors for PBS NewsHour include Jeffrey Brown, Gwen Ifill, Hari Sreenivasan, Ray Suarez, Margaret Warner, and Judy Woodruff. One of the major differences between network news and the PBS NewsHour is that because the show is publicly funded, there are no commercials. This allows the NewsHour to dedicate more time to comprehensive reporting. Since its premiere, the show has been the recipient of countless awards. In 2009, it won the National Association of Media Literacy Education, Media Literate Award; in 2008 PBS NewsHour was awarded the News and Documentary Emmy Award for Outstanding Coverage of a Breaking News Story in a News Magazine.moreless
