    Independent Lens [#1405] Soul Food Junkies Baffled by his dad's reluctance to change his traditional soul food diet in the face of a health crisis, filmmaker Byron Hurt sets out to learn more about this culinary tradition and it's relevance to black cultural identity.

  • 6:00 am
    Cafeteria Man All across America, school food is undergoing a major transformation to help reverse the childhood obesity epidemic. Cafeteria Man provides a unique, behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to bring fresher, healthier food to the millions of kids in our nation's schools, with the ultimate goal of enhancing their well-being. It follows nationally-recognized, charismatic chef Tony Geraci for several years as he works to revamp school food programs in Baltimore and Memphis. Says best-selling author Michael Pollan in the documentary: "If Tony makes this happen here, I think you'll see this happening all over the country." duration 59:00   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 7:00 am
    Frontline [#3214] Separate and Unequal 60 years after the Supreme Court declared separate schools for black and white children unconstitutional, Frontline examines the comeback of segregation in America. The film focuses on Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where a group of mostly white parents are trying to form their own city with its own separate school district, leaving behind a population of black students. Through the battle in Baton Rouge, Frontline shows the growing racial divide in American schools and the legacy of Brown v. Board of Education.
    Also this hour: Frontline updates the story of Omarina Cabrera, a struggling student from the Bronx who today is excelling at an elite prep school in New England because of a groundbreaking program to stem the high school dropout crisis. Drawing on the 2012 film, Middle School Moment, Frontline follows Omarina's achievements and challenges and shows the contrasts to her twin brother, who has remained in the Bronx.

    • KQED all channels, planned overnight maintenance: early Fri 12/19 midnight-6am

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later. Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion. These switches should cause momentary outages only, and most receivers […]
