PBS was born on this date 44 years ago!
Over the course of a year, nearly 90% percent of all U.S. television households and 82% of all children ages 2-8 watch their local PBS station. And in September alone, Americans watched more than 261 million videos across all of PBS’ web and mobile platforms; 74% of these streams were delivered on a mobile device.
Thank you for your support! What’s your favorite PBS memory?
I remember this logo!
Not For Ourselves Alone: The Story of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton by Ken Burns. Thank you Julie and Ronnie.
She was the voice of the famous suffragette in the Ken Burns documentary Not For Ourselves Alone. Ronnie Gilbert voiced her best friend and fellow activist Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Might re-wattch that tonight in memory of Ms. Harris. RIP
Happy 60th Birthday to our friend, Ken Burns!
Ken’s acclaimed documentaries have earned 12 Emmys and 2 Oscar nominations.

I love this man. Genius director. Master storyteller. Champion of America.
Drawn by the scent of a recent production of Norma (her signature role) Maria Callas deigned to visit the Kennedy Center Opera House.
This is hilarious! It’s like “Flat Stella” or “Flat Stanley”!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISTER ROGERS!
PBS legend Fred Rogers would have been 84 years old today. He passed away in 2003.
Fred Rogers was a pioneer in children’s television who created a place where children feel safe, respected and cared for.
For more than forty years Mister Rogers has served as a trusted guide to help children learn about themselves, their neighbors and the world around them.

A beautiful man in a beautiful neighborhood. The only one in my life who ever told me he likes me just the way I am. :’(
Make these Whole Grain Gingerbread Pancakes for a breakfast that tastes like dessert.
It was my ambition to create cocktails for all three Crawley sisters (because original cocktails for the whole cast, while admirable, might be a bit daunting). First up is Sybil, the youngest, and my (and maybe your) personal favorite. Sybil is so easy to like…she’s sweet without being saccharine, headstrong, and a bit stubborn. For her, I created a cocktail with delicate, rarefied flavors (St. Germain and champagne) that’s grounded with something a bit more everyman (London dry gin). The end product is sweet, lovely, and stronger than you’d expect.
makes 1 cocktail
1 oz gin
3/4 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur
brut champagne, chilled
Combine the gin and St. Germain over ice. Shake and strain into a flute. Top with champagne. (via Downton Abbey Cocktails: Sybil | The Kitchn)
