CET and ThinkTV are excited to announce that we’ll be airing Rescue in the Philippines: Refuge from the Holocaust this week. This previously untold story tells the tale of how more than 1,300 Jews escaped the Nazis by immigrating to the Philippines.

 

The rescue was orchestrated by Manuel Quezon, the charismatic first president of the Philippines; Paul McNutt, US High Commissioner and former governor of Indiana; an ambitious US Army Colonel named Dwight Eisenhower; and the Frieder brothers, Cincinnati-based businessmen manufacturing 2-for-a-nickel cigars in pre-WWII Manila.

 

Here are the broadcast times for this one-hour documentary:

Sunday, April 28, at 7pm on CET

Sunday, April 28, at 11pm on ThinkTV16

Sunday, May 5, at 10pm on ThinkTV14

Ever since CET first got word that Antiques Roadshow was coming to Cincinnati last summer, the Queen City has been buzzing. We had a record number of ticket request to come to the taping event, we’ve gotten to see some of the city’s most fantastic antiques and oddities, and we’ve made some wonderful new friends.

 

Taping the three Cincinnati episodes of Antiques Roadshow was a whirlwind day and, even though people had to wait in line to see appraisers and many found out their items weren’t as rare as they’d hoped, everyone still seemed to have an awesome time.

 

Starting at 8pm Monday, April 1, on CET and ThinkTV16, we’ll all finally get to see that one, long day turned into three entertaining episodes of Antiques Roadshow! Where did that giant Abraham bust come from? Is a vase with a dragon on it worth something? What does Reds memorabilia mean to collectors around the country?

 

Here’s the broadcast information:

 

Episode 1: 8pm Monday, April 1, on ThinkTV16 and CET

Episode 2: 8pm Monday, April 8, on CET and ThinkTV16

Episode 3: 8pm Monday, April 15, on ThinkTV16 and CET

Sunday dramas on ThinkTV16 and CET are back! We’re excited to tell you that Call the Midwife season two premieres at 8pm Sunday, March 31. This new season will include eight new episodes with all the well-loved characters as well as some new faces. This new season stays true to its roots – viewers can expect to see more births, babies and bicycling as well as blossoming romance from an unexpected quarter.

 

We’re also really looking forward to a new series, Masterpiece Classic: Mr. Selfridge, which will air for the first time at 9pm on CET and ThinkTV16, just after Call the Midwife on March 31st. Mr. Selfridge follows the story of Harry Gordon Selfridge and stars Jeremy Piven (Entourage) as the wheeling-dealing American who shows 1900s Londoners how to shop.

 

Not sure if these shows are for you and would like to see the previews? Looking to catch up on season one of Call the Midwife before season two starts? Want to go behind the scenes?
