  • 12:00 am
    PBS NewsHour [#10722] Bradley Manning * Cancer Studies * Military Sexual Assaults * Honduras * Assisted Living duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)
  • 1:00 am
    Nightly Business Report [#32170] Tonight on Nightly Business Report, what's behind the surge in home prices, which just posted their biggest annual gain in seven years? And, who pays for college? It's not mom and dad. They're paying less these days, shifting more of the financial burden to the student. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)
  • 1:30 am
    Tavis Smiley [#2956] Tavis talks with musician Taj Mahal - considered by many as an American blues original.

  • 2:00 am
    Intelligence Squared U.S. [#105] Should Genetically Engineered Babies Be Prohibited? Imagine a world free of genetic diseases, where parents control their offspring's height, eye color and intelligence. The science may be closer than you think. Genes interact in ways that we don't fully understand and there could be unintended consequences, new diseases that result from our tinkering. But even if the science could be perfected, is it morally wrong? Would it lead to eugenics and a stratified society where only the rich enjoy the benefits of genetic enhancement? Or would the real injustice be depriving our children of every scientifically possible opportunity? duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Nature [#3004#] An Original DUCKumentary Working with "Hummingbirds" producer Ann Prum, Nature features another popular, beautiful and fascinating bird - the duck. The story follows a wood duck family and discovers how a male and female create a bond, migrate together across thousands of miles, nurture and protect a brood of chicks and come full circle as they head to their wintering grounds. But our stars are just one of some 150 species of ducks. They come in all shapes and sizes and abilities - some are dabblers popping in and out of the surface of a glass lake and others swim with powerful webbed feet underwater. They fly through the air on short, stubby wings, traveling in large, energy-efficient formations over thousands of miles. Some are noisy and gregarious, others shy and elusive. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • MORNING
  • 6:10 am
    Jewish People: A Story of Survival "Through thirty and more centuries, he has wandered about on earth, despised and rejected, bruised and beaten, yet all the time wandering on ... He has seen far-flung empires crack and crumble, and mighty peoples dwindle to naught... But he, the Jew, still lives on... Lewis Browne, 1926.
    This is their story, the story of Jewish survival. How did a band of desert nomads, against such overwhelming odds, survive four millennia and shape the course of world history?
    duration 1:20:00   STEREO
  • 7:30 am
    Edge of the Everglades: Big Cypress National Preserve Narrated by Peter Thomas (Nova), this program tells the story of the massive, mysterious marshland that continues to inspire deep passions for - and bitter debate about - one of the last great wild places in the world. On the western edge of the Everglades, beyond the sawgrass prairies of the famed River of Grass, lies the cypress-studded marshland known as the Big Cypress Swamp. The vast wet wilderness - a mosaic of marshes, cypress trees, pinelands and prairies once slated to house the world's largest jetport - now stands as a testament to compromise. In 1974, unlikely allies - conservationists and hunters - brokered a controversial deal which attempted to satisfy both environmental and recreational interests. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

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

      (this includes all DT9, DT54 and DT25 channels, along with all paid services) We will be doing upgrade and maintenance work in our Master Control area during the overnight hours of late Thurs/early Fri 12/19.

    • 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 […]
