Posted by Cary Balzer on

Our Fall membership campaign continues through weekend.  PBS has announced several program changes for September that may create issues with your local newspaper television listings and PREVUE.  Here is the most current schedule listing for KSPS-TV.

Robin Williams Remembered – A Pioneers of Television Special, this tribute to actor and comedian Robin Williams features one of his last full-length interviews for the PIONEERS OF TELEVISION series.  The program will feature clips from his career and tributes from those who knew and worked with him.  ROBIN WILLIAMS REMEMBERED – A PIONEERS OF TELEVISION SPECIAL will air tonight at 11:00 PM PT.

Charlie Rose, originally scheduled for the 11:00 PM time slot will be pre-empted on Tuesday evening but will air on Wednesday, September 10th at 12:00 PM PT.

American Experience: The Big Burn originally slated for Tuesday, September 9th has been withdrawn and will be rescheduled in 2015.

PBS also announced a change for Frontline for tonight.  Frontline: Solitary Nation has been withdrawn from the schedule.  FRONTLINE: EBOLA OUTBREAK will air at various times on KSPS-TV, KSPS-WORLD, and online throughout the week.  Please note that due to subject matter – viewer discretion is advised.

From the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak, Frontline follows health officials tracking the deadly disease and trying to stop its rampant spread.  With special access to teams fighting Ebola in Sierra Leone, the film shows how the outbreak is endangering health-care workers, overwhelming medical facilities and getting worse.  Also, in the hour, Frontline investigates accounts that members of the Nigerian military have been committing atrocities in the fight against Boko Haram – the Islamist militants who kidnapped nearly 300 schoolgirls in April.  Amid worldwide pressure to fine the girls, Frontline uncovers shocking videos showing arrests, torture and summary executions of alleged Boko Haram suspects.  Please note that this program contains graphic imagery and descriptions of violence which may not be suitable for all audiences.  Viewer discretion is advised.
