    PBS
    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

    God in America is a PBS documentary series which sets out to explain how religion, particularly Christianity, has influenced the development of culture on the North American continent, starting at Columbus and ending in modern times. Consisting of six one-hour long episodes, the series covers a variety of topics, such as how the New World caused the faith of the Old to evolve, how the notion of religious liberty came to the founders, how religion colored the Civil War, how modernization challenged old beliefs, how the post World War II era of the Cold War became one of "faith versus godless communism," and finally ends in an exploration of the challenges religion faces in today's world.

    Clifford the Big Red Dog is a fun show aimed towards younger audiences. Clifford, a 20 foot tall red dog, plays with his dog friends, Cleo and T-Bone, and has great adventures with them. Clifford's best friend, however, is Emily Elizabeth Howard, his owner. Emily has friends of her own and all the characters live peacefully on Birdwell Island. Each Clifford the Big Red Dog episode consists of two stories, linked by a "Speckle Story," a story read to Clifford by Emily Elizabeth about the adventures of a dog named Speckle. At the end of each episode is a "big idea" presented by Clifford, followed by a short promotional spot for one of the characters on Clifford. Please note that some online guides list two big ideas for each episode. The "big idea" listed in this guide will always be only the one that actually airs at the end of the episode itself. Also included is a short segment featuring a real kid with his/her dog. However, most, if not all, PBS stations no longer show this segment. These segments are available for viewing on Clifford DVDs. Production of Clifford The Big Red Dog officially ended when John Ritter returned to ABC primetime in the fall of 2002, as the star of 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter. The final seven Clifford the Big Red Dog shows aired on PBS in February 2003, and the production of episodes was discontinued to make way for the spinoff show, described below. However, there are indications that some produced episodes haven't yet aired, so keep an eye out! Brach's recently announced a special mail-order video and there could be more coming. With John Ritter's unfortunate passing the following September, there are no plans for new production. Repeats continue on every weekday except Wednesday on most PBS stations. There is also a movie, "Clifford's Really Big Movie", which is now out on DVD and video. Clifford the Big Red Dog is so popular that it now has a spinoff!

    PBS
    Five years in the making, Between the Lions has set out to get kids "wild about reading". Between the Lions is written by many of the major greats of Sesame Street, such as Christopher Cerf. Many former Arthur staff are involved as well, including Joe "Toolbox" Fallon and Ken Scarborough. New episodes are now airing! In every episode, there can be found countless sight gags, puns, parodies, songs, and more, all of which are designed to help kids better understand the pronunciation of everyday words.

    The setting for the show is, fittingly, a library, where husband-and-wife team Theo and Cleo are the Librarians. Their inquisitive cubs, younger sister Leona and older brother Lionel, often help them out, while another character - the Information Hen - dispenses information to perplexed Library patrons.

    Among the other colorful characters likely to be encountered, is a statue of the library's founder, Barnaby B. ("Don't Call Me Buster!") Busterfield III, who makes sarcastic comments about the silliness he often witnesses going on in the library. There are also two dim-witted pigeons, Clay and Walter (get it?) who hang around the statue, keeping him company - but he just wishes they'd go away!

    Additional characters include Click the Computer Mouse, who has the amazing ability to extract characters from books and bring them to life, and can even place real people in books! Arty Smartypants is an oily entertainer usually seen "reading words without any assistance whatsoever!" And, believe it or not, Dr. Ruth Westheimer can sometimes be seen dispensing advice, also. (About words, of course!) And likeable, white-haired Fred Newman provides a vast repertoire of hilarious "mouth sounds."

    Between the Lions was cancelled, but then brought back thanks to the help of Mississippi Public Broadcasting (MPB), working together with WGBH.

    Yes, it's quite a library.

    Between the Lions is funded in part by a Ready To Learn Television Cooperative Agreement from the U.S. Department of Education through the Public Broadcasting Service. National corporate sponsorship is provided by Chick-fil-A. Additional funding is provided by the Krueger Charitable Foundation.

    Between the Lions can be found online at (pbskids.org/lions. The Between the Lions team is committed to making quality television available to all children. Each episode is accessible to blind and visually impaired viewers through WGBH Boston's innovative, Emmy Award-winning Descriptive Video Service (DVS). The series also is closed captioned by the Media Access Group at WGBH for viewers who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.

    Between the Lions is seen on PBS, which means that it's broadcast time varies from station to station (10:30 on one station, 3:30 on another, etc). Check your local listings, for time and channel (the time and day listed below is for the New Jersey Network, or NJN).

    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

    Welcome to the Sagwa, the Chinese Siamese Cat guide at TV.com. Meet Sagwa, a spirited and playful Chinese kitten. Sagwa is the middle kit and has an older brother named Dongwa and a little sister named Sheegwa. The show is based on the book of the same title that is written by Amy Tan ("The Joy Luck Club", "The Kitchen God's Wife") and illustrated by Gretchen Schields. The story is set in the time near the end of the 19th century in China(1), where The emperor is the head of the country, but delegates the taxing and ruling work to subordinates known as "magistrates" who rules a province. The show airs on any PBS affiliates, the PBS Kids cable channel, and on the PBS satellite service in the US, and on various networks in Canada. It was also available over Disney Channel in Asia, on TCS Central in Singapore, and on TV2 in Malaysia. It is produced by Sesame Workshop and CinéGroupe Canada. Note 1: The network listed below, PBS, is the first known network that picked up the show. It does not implies that PBS is the only network that is airing the show. Note 2: (1) According to one of the Curious Cat segments (Specifically, the one in episode #129). And for those inquiring minds, here's an English translation of the Sagwa theme song. (Music composed by Judith Henderson) Hao peng yo, Hao peng yo Sagwa shi wo de hao peng yo (Repeat 2x) Sagwa, you're my best friend Sagwa...~! (Repeat whole song 2x) Cast Of Sagwa: (Contributed by Jespera, expanded from the editor's H2G2 entry on Sagwa) Sagwa: The star of the show! A very curious and inquisitive Siamese cat, she often gets into adventures... or misadventures! Kind, curious, quick thinking, creative and often bossy, Sagwa (Who'se name means either "Silly Melon Head", "Fool" or "Stupid" depending on how mature your understanding of Mandarin is or which online translation website you used) was originally pure white in colour, but gained her current Siamese cat look after an accident in which she fell into an ink-pot that was on the Foolish Magistrate's desk in episode #101--. Sagwa also has the best artistic skills of the three siblings and she is very talented in Calligraphy. She is being trained to be a calligrapher like her parents and ancestors. Sagwa is voiced by Holly Gauthier-Frankel, known best for her role as Fern Walters in Marc Brown's Arthur. Fu-Fu: Sagwa's best friend, a very clumsy but intelligent and lucky bat that wears glasses with cracked lens. ("Fu" means luck in Chinese but it also can mean bat.) It's Fu-Fu who often has to rescue Sagwa and also give her advice. He lives in a cave with other bats on a mountain side not far from Sagwa's residence. Fu-Fu is voiced by Rick Jones, whose other accomplishments include playing evil rat "No-Tail No Goodnik" in HBO's "The Country Mouse and City Mouse Adventures" as well as other bad guys on various other cartoons, writing for Nickelodeon game show "You Can't Do That on Television", and appearing as a guest star in one episode of TV series "The Saint". Dongwa: Sagwa's older brother by two years. Intelligent, hardheaded and with a preference for Tai-Chi, he thinks he's mature and likes to hang out with the alley cats outside the palace premises. Dongwa (who'se name literally means "Winter Melon"), is often annoyed by his younger siblings, but he does play with them like a good brother. He is the only male child of the family. Dongwa is cream coloured and has marks over his face like Sagwa. Dongwa is voiced by Oliver Grainger, who played Arthur's sister, D.W., in Marc Brown's Arthur from Season 3 to Season 5. Sheegwa: Sagwa's younger sister by two years. Curious, friendly, cheerful and full of energy, Sheegwa (Who'se name literally means "Watermelon") always looks to the bright side and tries to befriend every living thing2 in her path. Her giggle (hee hee!) is her trademark and her fur is pure white (hasn't developed the siamese markings yet). Sheewa's as curious as Sagwa and looks up to her siblings. Sheegwa is voiced by Jesse Vinet, who is known for her role as Cailou's baby Sister, Rosie, in newer Caillou episodes. Baba Miao (@ Win Bao Miao, Full name mentioned in #13602 - The Name Game): Sagwa's father. A very refined and dignified cat, he and Mama Miao are the official calligraphers of the foolish magistrate. Baba is also a teacher to his children. He is strict when duty calls, but playful in the off hours. Baba Miao is of the same colour as Dongwa. He is voiced by Arthur Holden, known for his part as Mr. Emil "Nigel" Charles Ratburn in Marc Brown's Arthur. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Baba Miao acts and sounds suspiciously like Mr. Ratburn. Mama Miao (@ Shao Fung Miao, Full name mentioned in #13602 - The Name Game): Sagwa, Sheegwa and Dongwa's Mother. She has characteristics similiar to that of Baba Miao, but a little less so. She has a colour scheme similiar to that of Sagwa. Also a very skilled calligrapher, she is also a better artist. While she may often come across as a nagging mother who scolds her children, Mama does have a playful streak and enjoys spending time with her family. Mama Miao is voiced by Ellen David, who is known for her role as Buster's Mom, Bitzi, in Marc Brown's Arthur. Nai-Nai: Sagwa, Sheegwa and Dongwa's grandmother. Grey in color, she is old-fashioned albeit patient and full of wisdom. She often tells the kits stories and is one of the authoritve figures on the show. Nai-Nai is voiced by Sonja Ball, known for her role as Mrs. Jane Read in Marc Brown's Arthur. Yeh-Yeh: Sagwa, Sheegwa and Dongwa's grandfather. Like Nai-Nai, he is old-fashioned albeit wise and patient. However, his nose is giving up on him and he tends to enjoy food that tastes good but smells terrible (i.e. 100-year-old tofu). He is, however, a good storyteller. Yeh-Yeh is voiced by Neil Shee. The Mice: Consist of Shei-Hu, his cousin Shei-He, and a couple of others. They are close friends of Sagwa and do no harm to the palace nor it's inhabitants. However, the Foolish Magistrate and his family panic at the sight of them dispite them doing no harm. The Alley Cats: Cats that're friends of either Sagwa or Dongwa, but does not belong in the palace. Can be divided into two groups: "Annoying" and "pleasant". Chet-Chet and Lick-Lick and a few others falls into the annoying catagory. Ling, Han-Han, Fan and a couple more falls into the pleasant catagory. The Sleeve Dogs: Consists of Ping, Pong and Pang. They are called the sleeve dogs because they live in the sleeve of the Foolish Magistrate's wife's robe. The Sleeve Dogs are annoying, dumb and obnoxiously noisy, and spend much of their time arguing among themselves or wreaking havoc in the palace. They think that they're superior to the cats, but the truth is the other way round. They are easily the least liked characters in the show. The Foolish Magistrate: He is a "mayor" of a small village and lives in a little palace. A hasty, henpecked, sometimes immature and particularly hungry fellow, the Foolish Magistrate spends most of his time writing out rules and eating noodles. Known to jump to conclusions or perform actions without considering the side-effect, possibility or consequences. For the most of the first episode of the show, he is particularly nasty as well, penning down all sorts of dumb rules, mostly backed or conspired by Tai-Tai. But after the ink-pot incident(in episode #101--), he achieves enlightenment, revokes all the no-fun rules, and is now a easy going and fun loving man (although he is still quick to jump to conclusions and sometimes still makes his old mistakes while under pressure from Tai-Tai, but the mistakes are not as severe as the ones in the first episode, and are quickly rectified at the end of the episode). He is the Miao cats' owner. They and their ancestors have worked together for many years, the cats serving as calligraphers for him and his family. The Foolish Magistrate is voiced by Hiro Kanagawa, who recently appeared as a guest star in a few episodes of Smallville. Tai-Tai: The Foolish Magistrate's wife. She is materialistic and thrives on prestige. Pompous, arrogant, cocky, old-fashioned and rather irritable, Tai-Tai is also just as hasty as the Foolish Magistrate and often carry out her plans without evaluating the consequences, only to realize the impact it has made on everyone later and corrects it. While often exasperated by her husband's immatureness, she does show a sweet side and comes off as being a great wife and mother. She owns Sleeve Dogs, a trio of yappy little Pekingese dogs that are constantly at odds with the Maio kittens. She keeps the Sleeve Dogs in the sleeves of her robes. Tai-Tai is voiced by Khaira Ledeyo. Ba-Do, Luk-Do, Huang-Do: The triplet of the Foolish Magistrate and Tai-Tai. While their faces are identical, their personalities, hair styles and clothes are different (Ba-Do wears pink, Luk-Do wears blue, and Huang-Do wears yellow). onstantly argues among themselves, but they complement each other and are each other's best friends and playmates. Ba-Do is voiced by Kathy Tsoi, Luk-Do is voiced by Leanne Adachi, and Huang-Do is voiced by Rosa Yee. The Reader of The Scrolls (a.k.a Reader): A somewhat childish but wise and quick-thinking character, wo is a live-in "secretary" to the Foolish Magistrate, he goes out into the village and announces the latest rule imposed on them by the Magistrate... much to the villagers' boredom and chagrin. A bespectacled man, the Reader shows tremendous patience when working with his boss. He is often the victim of mishaps that're caused by others in the palace. When he's off duty, he can almost always be found with the Cook. Reader is played by Russell Yuen. Cook: Also lives at the little palace with the Magistrate's family, the Cook's job is... well, cooking! An excellent cook at that, too, and he's capable of dishing out feasts when special events take place. The wisest human character in the show, The cook not only prepares meals (which consists of noodles most of the time), but sometimes also attend to medical emergencies around the palace. He can almost always be seen with The Reader of the Scrolls during his free time. The Cook is voiced by Raugi Yu. Jun: First arriving at the palace in the episode "Three Graces", Jun is the Magistrate's daughters' private tutor. She is also one of the nicest characters on the show and well-liked by the daughters and the other residents alike, including the cats.moreless
