I record VERA every Friday (Friday 9pm on ThinkTV 16), but last Friday, there was a special so VERA wasn’t on until later. How can I watch the shows that are uninterrupted?

Kathy M.,

Each episode of VERA is repeated a few times… 

16.1 & 16.5-       Friday 9pm        (original broadcast)
16.2-                    Saturday 9pm   (repeats)
                             Sunday 2am
                             Sunday 2pm
                            Monday 9am

The 16 Again channel is 16.2 over the air or on Time Warner 983 in Dayton. Cincinnati area viewers may or may not receive 16.2 over the air depending upon their location and antenna.But Time Warner does not carry 16’s digital sub channels on its Cincinnati system.

-Jim Wiener, Program Director

Last night I tuned in to watch the opening night of the Republican Convention.  I expected to see and hear the speeches.  To my great dismay at least half of the time I saw and heard highly biased commentary and interviews.  To alleviate my anger I had to mute my TV and turn on radio station 55 WKRC.  I was then able to get a reasonable amount of what I wanted to see and hear that accurately portrayed what was going on. PLEASE convey my TOTAL Disappointment with PBS's broadcast!

There’s two approaches to a news event like this. One is to have unfiltered access to those at the podium and everything the convention sponsors want you to hear, and the other is coverage that involves excerpts from the podium, interviews with officials on the convention floor,

Spontaneous occurrences (e.g. a heckler being removed), and analysis and commentary.

The latter is what I’ve watched on conventions for some 50 years, be it on CBS, ABC, NBC, and later on PBS, Fox and cable news channels.

The former is more of the C-Span style:  camera fixed on podium and it captures whoever’s at the microphone.   

I’d suggest that if you simply want to hear whoever is at the podium, you can always find uninterrupted coverage on the PBS NEWSHOUR YouTube channel:  www.youtube.com/pbsnewshour
