Beautiful Days

Ten years ago, there was an empty space in my heart.

A remembrance of Fred Rogers, who died on February 27, 2003.

David Thiel and Fred Rogers.

I’m reminded that it was ten years ago today that Fred Rogers left us. Here’s the tribute that I wrote that morning, which was subsequently picked up by the public broadcasting news outlet Current as well as several PBS station program guides.

Mister Rogers was one of the first programs that I can remember watching. I was, of course, part of the show’s target demographic back then. I can’t recall much from my preschool years, but I do know that I loved the trolley, I loved the neighborhood and I loved Fred Rogers.

Sunday Nights Will Be British Drama Nights

"Midwife" to return, "Mr. Selfridge" to debut.

Jeremy Piven will star as Mr. Selfridge in the hit drama beginning March 31, alongside a new series of Call the Midwife. And that's not all!

The midwives of Call the Midwife.

There's something exciting happening on Sunday nights. Buoyed by the massive success of Downton Abbey, PBS is investing heavily in fresh British drama. 

A second series of Call the Midwife will air on WILL-TV Sundays at 7:00 pm CT starting March 31. In eight new episodes, Jenny, Trixie, Cynthia and Chummy continue their challenging work in London's East End of the 1950s. Babies and bicycling ensue. And will romance come to Nonnatus House?
