*Not to mention it was where I got my introduction to Doctor Who, only one of my top ten shows of all time.
This is a program KTCA did several years ago, when they were celebrating their 50th anniversary on the air. It was a different time; KTCA truly was dedicated to educational television, so much so that they were one of the last public stations to affiliate with PBS, which they saw as something of a betrayal of their original mission. This half-hour show will give you a real taste of what educational television was like, once upon a time. It was local, serving the community; it was niche programming, without regard to ratings; and it had a little something for everyone. Now, that doesn't always mean it was good. But if you read the program listings I post each week at Radio Discussions and Radio Insight, I dare say you'll recognize several of the titles from this show.
Note particularly. around the 13 minute mark, a program called Christmas in Tyrol; I wrote about that, too, once upon a time - it was hosted by Monsignor Richard Schuler, our old pastor at St. Agnes in St. Paul, Minnesota. Such a grand old man. Anyway, I think you'll find public TV has changed just a bit over the years.
