I have worked in public broadcasting for 32 years and can truthfully say some of the programming we see on AETN and PBS NOW are among the most compelling television in quite some time. For instance, MASTERPIECE is soaring - first "Downton Abbey," then "Great Expectations" and "Birdsong." What great drama...and , boy, "Birdsong" the heroic and heartbreaking intertwined stories on "Birdsong" were just terrific. you can see these and many other of the great shows on AETN and PBS by going to aetn.org and going to the "Watch AETN" page, or visit watch.aetn.org. You can click on programs and see many high-definition programs in their entirety. And don't forget to support your AETN and public broadcasting. It is a team effort!
