America in Black & Blue

America in Black & Blue

July 15 at 9pm and July 17 at 4pm on CET

After a week of violence, grief and horror, with five police officers shot dead in Dallas, and two African American men shot dead by police officers in Minnesota and Louisiana, America in Black and Blue will dig deep to explore the roots of these events, competing accounts of responsibility and justice, and televise the conversation that America is having around so many losses, mutual fears, and also around the common ground where progress may be made.

The special will draw on recent and upcoming PBS content, including FRONTLINE’s Policing the Police, the Gwen Ifill special America After Ferguson and the forthcoming documentary, The Talk, about the talk that many parents of color have with their kids about interacting with police.

America in Black and Blue, a PBS NewsHour Weekend Special, will be hosted by journalist Alison Stewart, with reporting from PBS NEWSHOUR WEEKEND anchor Hari Sreenivasan, and special correspondents Chris Bury and Michael Hill.

Jim Q&A

I keep getting emails that DOC MARTIN’s new season begins 9/20/2017. When will Cincinnati carry it?
MaryAnn A., Cincinnati

DOC MARTIN has premiered its 8th season, but in the U.K.  The series won’t be available here until 2018, and we hope to air it starting 1/11/18. 

The same scenario will likely play out for DOC’s 9th and final season.  It will be available in America around January 2019

Spectrum screwed up (again) while we were out of town last week and didn't record episode 1 of VIETNAM WAR.  Will there be reruns on WCET? if so, when?
Larry B., Hamilton

The only repeats are late night, a few hours after primetime. 

But the series will be repeated in its entirety on Tuesdays 8pm starting 10/3 on CET 48.

Thank you for MILK STREET cooking show. Missed my guy on test kitchen. Love MILK STREET and thank you again.
Tina K., Dayton

And Chris Kimball missed you.  He won’t admit it and will claim that the tears were from cutting onions.  But he knows the trick of how o prevent that, so I’m not buying it.

There was a parting of the ways on AMERICA’S TEST KITCHEN a few years back.  But Kimball went out and started up his own series and companion magazine.  CHRISTOPHER KIMBALL’S MILK STREET TELEVISION now airs Saturdays 11am on CET 48 and at 2:30pm on ThinkTV 16. The menu is a bit more international, and the kitchen color scheme is more “subtle earth tones.”  Otherwise, the slightly taciturn Kimball is back doing what he does best.
