Fall and early winter will bring many new offerings to our Public Television schedule. In addition to October’s exciting annual Wine & Epicurean Auction to benefit the station, we begin our second Student to Citizen independent film project. Funded by a private donor, there will be seven monthly independent film presentations on KRCB Tuesday nights from October through May of 2010. A complete listing, along with summaries and study guides are at http://www.krcb.org/student-to-citizen-film-series.
You will notice that the long-running series, Foreign Exchange has left our air due to a shutdown in production. But we now are bringing you a wonderful series on investments titled Moneytrack on Friday evenings and Sunday mornings.
I hope you are enjoying the series Life Part 2, Tuesday nights at 7:30. If you are a “Boomer” like me, don’t miss it.
If you are a fan of the piano, don’t miss a wonderful night of programming on Wednesday, October 28. You will enjoy Piano Forte and Note by Note. Program details at http://www.krcb.org/tv-22-schedule.
November is, among other things, National Native American Heritage Month, Veterans’ Day and, of course Thanksgiving. KRCB presents many special programs saluting all of the above.
With the H1N1 flu virus becoming more prevalent in our lives this fall, KRCB is presenting a double broadcast of a very informative health special from the producers of Second Opinion on November 2nd and November 17th at 11am.
November 7th at 6pm, you will experience a live experiment on PBS. Live by Request with John Fogerty comes to KRCB. You will be able to support your favorite Public Television station here in the North Bay and hear your favorite John Fogerty requests played live. Check it out.
Speaking about supporting Public Television, our annual winter membership drive begins Thanksgiving night with wonderful memories from Julia Child and the music of the 1950’s. The drive continues through the first half of the month with eciting new specials from Ande Rieu, Andrea Bocelli & David Foster, Rick Steves and Levar Burton as well as programs featuring Ed Sullivan, the Radio City Rockettes and Frank Sinatra.
And finally, of course, look for your favorite end of year holiday programming in December. Details on all the above special programs at http://www.krcb.org/tv-22-schedule.
We are still hearing from viewers, old and new about our clear digital signal and multiple channels. New digital antennas are up, converters are properly tuned and many of you are enjoying our three digital over the air services, with PBS programming (much of it in high definition) on DTV-1, PBS Create programming on DTV-2 and our sister station, KRCB-FM audio on DTV-3.
Also, this fall, watch for a new look and feel to your favorite nightly news source, "The PBS Newshour". Jim Lehrer is not retiring. He will be joined by additional co-anchors who will add increased depth and analysis to this already award-winning news series.
That's it for now.
Happy holidays and thanks for watching and supporting KRCB Public Television.
