    This was the last series John Robbins hosted for the renamed Children's Television International (CTI). Its format was tapped directly from Cover To Cover: Robbins introduced a book and drew a scene from it, while a narrator read a passage from the book. Virtually every show had the narration end at a "cliffhanger" moment. Robbins told viewers to read the book to find out the whole story. For John Robbins, Storybound was one of his last efforts produced for the late Ray Gladfelter.moreless

    PBS (ended 1999)
    Jacques Pepin's Kitchen: Encore with Claudine is a famous cooking series produced by KQED-TV for PBS. The shows which were produced in San Francisco in 1998, feature the world-famous cook Jacques Pepin with his American daughter Claudine. In every episode, Jacques teaches Claudine recipes which are inspired by both French and American gourmet cooking. Basics are taught such as cleaning salad greens up to boning and stuffing quail. Most recipes have an American feel despite the apparent French influence and need minimal ingredients and direction. As the first show with his daughter started in 1995, this series is only one of the many shows the father-daughter tandem hosted. Pepin is very noted for being the personal chef of three French head of states before coming to the United States in 1959. He particularly channels this expertise well by teaching the general public through these shows. This series ran for about six months before finally ending in April 1, 1999.moreless

    PBS (ended 1968)
    From its first telecast February 7, 1965, WVIZ-TV in Cleveland was devoted, under the 28-year leadership of president Betty Cope, to provide educational materials for schools. Among the first "TV teachers" on WVIZ was Brenda Veal. She brought tothe local public audience music education, an element so rare at any time in PBS history (think back to the short life of The Charlie Horse Music Pizza). Brenda Veal's achievements caught the attention of a company in Bloomington, Indiana called (at the time) the National Center for School and College Television. Their efforts brought Brenda Veal to a nationwide audience. The result was Stepping into Rhythm, whose two releases in 1967 and 1974 are legendary. This guide has been established to honor the 1967 edition of Stepping into Rhythm. It is the result of an exhaustive online search which yielded the print material pictured here. Episode synopses will emerge shortly.moreless

    Timeline

    Timeline

    Follow
    PBS (ended 1989)
    One of the forgotten gems of the eighties, Timeline was an educational series with the brilliant premise of having a TV news team report straightfacedly from some of the Middle Ages' greatest turning points. Rarely has this startling mix of hard mediaeval history and the inexplicably fantastic intrusion of TV news ever been attempted. The best comparison is Walter Cronkite's You Are There, but Timeline wins over with its modern wit amidst a feudal backdrop. Curtis Olmstead has noted that Timeline series creator Gary Witt may have drawn inspiration from the 1969 proto-Python series The Complete and Utter History of Britain, though to be fair, Peter Watkins' Culloden pioneered the format as serious documentary on the BBC in 1964. And as Witt and series producer Leo Eaton have kindly pointed out, the original incarnation of Timeline on PBS was as a series of shorts called Newscast From the Past. Timeline had a long list of international producers, location shoots in Turkey, Spain and England, and a price tag of over $2 million. But PBS virtually killed the series by mismanaging its broadcast schedule (this your editor can attest to, from memory, and see dates below). Its current distributor has 5-minute RealVideo samples of each episode online; see link at left. The production companies included Maryland Public Broadcasting System, KRLU-Austin and The Newscast Company of Texas, Turkish Radio and Television, Television Española, and Holmes Associates and Molinare/Visions of Great Britain.moreless

The group and their tutor leave the PBS studios from time to time and travel throughout New York City looking for mathematics in real-life situations. A visit to the city's botanical gardens inspires the song "Eco-count" and a New York Yankee ballgame brings out the song, "Points Unknown." moreless

    This 16-part ITV series boasted excellent production values. John Robbins, famed for Cover To Cover, introduced the dramatizations in The Short Story and directed a handful of them as well. Much like Cover To Cover, Robbins set the stage for a book. The remainder of each program played out the story in Masterpiece Theatre fashion. The late Ray Gladfelter wanted to duplicate this formula when he started production of The Novel in 1980, but would run into problems.moreless

    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
