  • 1:00 am
    Nightly Business Report [#32192Z] Tonight on Nightly Business Report, the economy grew faster than originally thought in the second quarter. What it means for the markets, the Federal Reserve and your money. And, with tuition costs rising, students are looking for alternative ways of paying for college. In part two of NBR's series, we look at students turning to crowdsourcing as a way to pay. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE

    Tavis Smiley [#2978] 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, part 3 of 3 Tavis talks MLK - the man and his legacy - with Dr. Clayborne Carson, director of Stanford University's Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute. Carson reflects on the 1963 march - his first demonstration - and one of its complex and multifaceted leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Tavis also chats with Martin Luther King III and Rev. Bernice King. Two of Dr. King's three surviving children talk about the legacy of their activist father. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

    Frontline [#3109] Never Forget to Lie In his latest film, Marian Marzynski (Return to Poland, Shtetl) returns to the Warsaw ghetto of his childhood. Marzynski tells the story of how he as a Jewish boy escaped the Holocaust, hiding from the Nazis and surviving the war as an altar boy in a Catholic monastery. In this deeply personal film, he shares the poignant, painful recollections of other child survivors, many of whom are visiting scenes of their childhood for the last time. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

An innovative, award-winning classroom teacher, Esquith gives the backstory to his book of no-nonsense advice, Real Talk for Real Teachers. Tavis also chats with contemporary jazz and pop trumpeter and composer Chris Botti. The accomplished musician talks about winning a Grammy this year for his CD, "Impressions," and his versatility in both jazz and pop. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)

  • 5:00 am
    Nova [#3804H] Making Stuff Cleaner Most modern materials are dangerous to the environment, but what about cleaning up our world? Batteries grown from viruses, tires made from orange peel oil, plastics made of sugar, and solar cells that cook up hydrogen-these are just a few glimpses of a new generation of clean materials that could power devices of the future. In Making Stuff Cleaner, David Pogue explores the rapidly developing science and business of clean energy and examines alternative ways to generate it, store it, and distribute it. Is hydrogen the way to go? One scientist is even using America's abundance of chicken feathers to create a cheap way to make hydrogen cars safer. What about lithium batteries? Does this solve an energy problem or create a new dependency - in this case, on South America for a different kind of limited resource than oil? Can scientists instead develop a process in which batteries run on molten salts found in cheap abundance in the US or on genetically engineered viruses? Pogue investigates the latest developments in biobased fuels and in harnessing solar energy for our cars, homes, and industry in a fascinating hour full of the "stuff" of a sustainable future. duration 56:16   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

  • 6:00 am
    Nova [#3805H] Making Stuff Smarter What can nature teach us about building smarter materials? Can we create materials that sense and respond? "When describing 'smart materials,' one analogy scientists give is the evolution from the first Terminator robot, a machine made of metal and circuitry, to the shape-shifting 'liquid guy' in Terminator 2," said Making Stuff producer Chris Schmidt. Smarter looks into the growing number of materials that almost seem alive - able to react, change and even learn. An Army tanker truck that heals its own bullet wounds. An airplane wing that changes shape as it flies. For inspirations and ideas, scientists are turning to nature and biology and producing some innovative new developments in materials science. Knowledge and inspiration drawn from nature are showing scientists new ways to give our materials amazing new abilities. By understanding how geckos climb even smooth walls, scientists have created a gecko adhesive that let's robots do the same. Studying the properties of skin has led to the development of self-healing protective foam. And Pogue literally goes swimming with sharks to understand a different kind of skin that is intriguing scientists. Scientists are modeling a material after sharkskin to develop an antibacterial film that, when sprayed in hospitals, could eliminate MRSA and other anti-biotic resistant bacteria. Pogue concludes "Smarter" with a visit to a scientist who has created a material that may make Harry potter's invisibility cloak a reality! duration 56:16   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 7:00 am
    Secrets of the Dead [#903] Mumbai Massacre On November 26, 2008, what began as a typical day in a buzzing cosmopolitan city devolved into a nightmare of explosions, gunfire and death when terrorists attacked. The world watched in horror as the escalating violence was broadcast live across the globe. But within the walls of the besieged hotels, a social networking revolution was taking place. Even as the terrorists watched CNN to find out where their victims were hiding, the prisoners were texting with terrorism experts, passing information to specially set up user-groups, and even searching the web for plans of the buildings to coordinate their escapes. Told completely from the victims' perspective using their own words, voicemails, texts, and user-group postings, this episode places viewers inside the deadly cat and mouse game as it played out. duration 56:46   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: none)

    • 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 […]

    • Wed 10/15 morning: KQED Plus (KQEH) Over the Air signal down

      UPDATE: This problem has been resolved, and the OTA signal for the DT54 channels restored. (DT54.1 through 54.5) KQED Plus’ Over the Air transmission is currently off air via our KQEH transmitter on Monument Peak northeast of San Jose. Technicians are working on the problem. No current estimate regarding how long this will exist. We […]

    • KQET (DT25) Over the Air: Wed 8/27

      We are aware of the break-up issues for our DT25 Over the Air signal in the Monterey/Salinas area. This will also affect viewers of any cable or satellite signal provider using that transmitter as their source. Engineers are working on the problem.

To view previous issues and how they were resolved, go to our TV Technical Issues page.
