New Programs In The New Year
We’ve added a few new programs to the schedule this month. I hope most of you caught the brand new “Masterpiece Classic: Downton Abbey” last night. If you did miss it, remember an encore presentation can be seen tonight at 9:00pm on WOSU PLUS. We’ve also started a new season of “Antiques Roadshow” on Monday nights. This is the sixteenth season for “Antiques Roadshow” on PBS. There are lots of imitators out there now, but the best is only on PBS! This season the appraisers find the most valuable discovery ever made on the program and there’s even a marriage proposal!
Tomorrow night “American Experience”, one of my favorite PBS programs, is back with a focus on the Wild West! A whole month of great programs, starting with the premiere “Billy the Kid” then it’s on to “Custer’s Last Stand“, “Annie Oakley” and finally “Jesse James“. On top of all of those great programs “American Experience” follows up in February with a new documentary in their Presidents series; “Clinton“. Finally as we get ready for the Summer Olympics with a profile on one of Ohio State’s greatest athletes, “Jesse Owens“.
For you weekend watchers, “Tracks Ahead” is back on Saturday mornings with new episodes and we get ready for our annual Chefs in the City event, by featuring a new season of this year’s celebrity chef Hubert Keller’s program, “Hubert Keller: Secrets of a Chef“. Finally we have a new season of “Everyday Edisons” coming to the schedule on Sunday afternoons. Keep checking the schedule for lots of new programs on WOSU TV this winter!
