    Following an Orientation program, Wally "Famous" Amos guided viewers through the five-part Reading series. Basic concepts such as fact vs. opinion, satire, parody, emphasis, figurative language, and repetition were covered, as was map and table reading. Interspersed through the programs were reading passages and short quizzes on what was just read. The six-part Science series, hosted by Pamela Lewis, spanned biology, chemistry, and physics. Interspersed through the programs were reading passages and short quizzes on what was just read. The Social Studies series covered American history through five programs. It made use of reading passages as well as timelines and tables. The ten-part Writing series (identified as Write Right) were produced by Mississippi Public Broadcasting. In these programs, Traber Burns played Arthur, a textbook author who gave casual writing instructions to Sonya, an Eastern European immigrant, and Freddy, her co-worker at the Lacy's Department Store. In the course of these shows, writing skills are introduced, then used to build on good writing. The 15-part Math series (entitled Adult Math) were produced earlier than any of the other programs. These centered around Frank Hall, who was returning to an adult education center to help students improve mathematical skills. Starting with fractions, the class applied the principles of mathematics to understand proportions, decimals, percentages, and the first light into algebra, geometry, and converting measurements. The 43-part GED on TV series wrapped up with a program on taking the GED test itself: the format of the test and how to prepare for it.moreless

    True to the tradition of The 1900 House, The 1940s House, Frontier House and Manor House, PBS has crafted yet another way for ordinary people to "bond" on television. This time around, the participants involved were racially diverse as well as being both American and British. This was an eight-part series that aired two episodes back-to-back on consecutive Mondays and Tuesdays between May 17 and May 25, 2004. In this version, executive producer Beth Hoppe had selected people to bond in creating a community that would inspire the birth of the United States. 2004 Emmy Nominee: Outstanding Reality Programmoreless

    Dinner At Julia's was a cooking show from Julia Child that was filmed at the Swank Hope Ranch outside of Santa Barbara. This show was unlike her other cooking shows, because it allowed her to be a hostess to her guests. She was able to interact with all of her guests, instead of simply staying in the kitchen and cooking throughout the whole show. Child's dinner parties were often themed as well, and her recipes from each episode were thoroughly explained while Child was in the kitchen.moreless

    Science is Elementary is an educational series from the American Pubic Broadcasting System that teaches exploratory science to kindergarten and first-grade students. The educators in the show set out to nudge scientific exploration into the minds of children through experiments that include fun and games. The season starts with "Let's Explore Weather and Seasons" where students can learn about the fours seasons and how climates change by playing a weather game. Next in the series lineup is, "Let's Explore Water." In this segment children find out why water is so important by experimenting with plants and animals. In "Let's Explore Air," kids play with balloons, and in "Let's Explore Light and Shadows" children get to take home a shadow portrait of themselves while teachers explain how light creates the somber images. In every episode, after the show's educators instruct teachers and students, music plays with displays of colorful on-screen images during the task's execution.moreless

    Welcome to the Meeting of Minds guide at TV.com. Steve Allen, already the originator of the Tonight show, later created what one critic called "the ultimate talk show" and presented, on the PBS network, a series called Meeting of Minds which was constructed in a typical chat-show format, but featured guests who played important roles in the drama of history. Among those who appeared were Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, Queen Cleopatra of Egypt, Marie Antoinette, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Paine, Francis Bacon, Thomas Jefferson, Voltaire and Charles Darwin. The multi-award winning series still exists in the form of video cassettes, audio cassettes and a four volume set of books, published by Prometheus. Most of the women's roles were played by Allen's wife, Jayne Meadows. Allen clarified at the time "The idea is that every syllable will be part of an actual quotation. The degree of the exact quotation varies from character to character. In the case of some people who played important roles in the drama of history, of course, there is no record of anything they ever said or wrote. Two examples that come to mind are Cleopatra and Attila the Hun. Nevertheless, they were both fascinating characters for our show. And there's nothing difficult in creating dialog for them. You bring factual information into conversational form -- and commit no offense in doing so. The more scholars know about the people we're dealing with, the more impressed they are with how accurate our renderings are. It's remarkable how little negative criticism we've received." Meeting of Minds encourages the viewer and reader, who may be historically illiterate, to become more familiar with the great thinkers and doers of the past and to whet their appetites for more research and study. It is an exciting classroom tool (through audiocassettes, videocassettes and books) for students of history and philosophy. "I felt that putting the greatest figures of all time together and showing them interacting was an entertaining way not only to have a better understanding of what is going on in the world today, but also to be in a better position to make decisions for the future." It took Allen some 18 years to bring this project to fruition. When it finally reached the national marketplace, it was honored with a multitude of awards, among them the Peabody Award, one national Emmy, three national Emmy nominations, a TV Critics Circle Award, the Encyclopedia Britannica Award and the Film Advisory Board Award. The series was produced in the studios of KCET, the PBS outlet in Los Angeles, with Loring d'Usseau, a prime and early supporter of the Allen brainchild, acting as executive producer. In 1989, Prometheus Books published the 24 scripts in book form, and in 1992, Dove Audio, Inc. released the programs on audiocassette. From SteveAllen.commoreless

    PBS
    Franny Fantootsie has the most wonderful adventures. This smart, friendly little girl is the star of children's animation "Franny's Feet", in which she is seen spending time with her Grandpa, the owner of "Fantootsie shoe repairs". Invariably, each episode begins with Franny doing something away from the front counter, or trying to help her Grandpa - only to be interrupted by the ringing of the bell on the door and her trademark cry of "A customer!" - at which she is seen skipping over to the counter to pull up a stool to stand on. Grandpa takes in a pair of shoes which need fixing, and asks Franny to "put them in the fix-it box, please". That's where her adventures begin, because when she tries on the footwear, anything is possible, as Franny knows; when she asks "Where will my feet take me today?", she really doesn't know! She could be in Jamaica on a beach, trying to explain to a child who has never seen snow, how it looks and feels - or by a lake, trying to get a Flamingo and a Peacock to stop arguing and co-operate - or in the jungle, cleaning up after a monkey who litters the jungle floor from a tree. Franny's feet is an absolutely beautiful 2D preschool animation which runs in a 30 minute slot, 2 x 15 minute episodes, and helps children to explore the inner world of their minds through imagination, play and co-operation. It's a direct relationship with the audience which endears children to this entertaining and brilliantly thought out cartoon, which will keep audiences spellbound.moreless

    Welcome to The Steven Banks Show guide at TV.com.

    "My name is Steven, how the hell are you? I said good evening, how the hell are you? This is my show, in case you didn't know, So sit right back, don't have a heart attack or a stroke. This is my show, so now you know."

    "On this show, I am the wacky neighbor" comedian/musician Steven Banks commented on this rare American-produced PBS comedy series. The show was taped before a live audience in Altadena and presented by Brandon Tartikoff's Easting Down productions and WYES-TV in New Orleans.

    The Steven Banks show began as Banks' play "Home Entertainment Center," which aired on the Showtime Network. The play depicts Steven coming home from work and having to provide a speech to the board of directors at work. Rather than work on the speech, chronic procrastinator Banks embarks on various diversions, such as picking up various musical instruments in his cluttered apartment and improvising entire songs. The play became the basis of a pilot which Showtime aired, but never developed into a series. PBS picked up Steven Banks for his own show in the summer of 1994, when public television was under pressure from right-wing critics who criticized PBS as a "liberal media elite", and gave him a limited 8-episode run on Monday nights from July 11, 1994 to September 5, 1994.

    The series was based on the pilot, and featured Michael Kostroff and Teresa Parente as the entire supporting cast, as well as various other one-time roles. Banks was still himself, still a bachelor in his mid-thirties, acting out his own fantasies and procrastinating in his cluttered apartment in what some critics described as "Pee-Wee's Playhouse for baby-boomer shut-ins."** However, the show vanished from the air in September of 1994, leaving 5 episodes untelevised in the U.S.
