Since first going on the air in 1954, KQED has been an integral part of the Bay Area's media and cultural landscape. The station produces its own unique local and national programs and collaborates with filmmakers and documentary producers.
KQED also produces three independent film series: Truly California, which showcases documentaries that focus on local, regional, and statewide issues; Film School Shorts, a half-hour weekly series that showcases short student films from across the country; and Imagemakers, a collection of internationally acclaimed short films.
KQED national productions include Jacques Pépin: Heart and Soul. In addition, KQED has had a major role in producing programs of local interest to national audiences with such programs as San Francisco Ballet's Nutcracker for Great Performances and the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival for Austin City Limits as well as contributing to other national PBS series including American Experience, The NewsHour, and NOVA ScienceNow.
Michael Isip is the Vice President, Television Content. Scott Dwyer is KQED's Director of Programming.
