Programming Notes for Mid-April
Written by Holly on Friday April 15, 2011
A few notes about the next few days on OETA...
8pm EDWARD AND WALLIS, A ROYAL LOVE STORY – Prince Edward believed he could use the power and majesty of the throne to pursue his obsession with his twice-divorced American mistress, Wallis Simpson. This documentary recounts the familiar tale from a fascinating new perspective, exploring warning signs that were evident in Edward from an early age that ultimately led to years of scandal and controversy in the 20th century British monarchy. This documentary will air again 4/25 at 8pm.
1:30pm INSIDE E STREET – Season Two premiere -- Looks at the latest developments around the country affecting economic security, health care, job security, civil rights, and retirement. Featuring lively discussions from experts and insiders. SECOND OPINION will return when they release their next new season.
ARE YOU BEING SERVED? – Preempted tonight and next Sunday due to the length of the 9pm program from PBS. It will return to its regular time on Sunday May 1st.
8pm AMERICAN MASTERS “John Miur in the New World” -- A century after his death, John Muir is remembered as the father of the environmental movement. Just one of many "Earth Day" themed programs airing this week.
9:30pm GAMES OF THE NORTH -- Follows modern Inuit athletes and they compete in ancestral Inuit sports in the unforgiving Arctic.
8pm FRONTLINE “The Silence” – Looks at the decades of abuse of Native Americans by priests and church workers in Alaska. Also in this hour, a re-airing of "Flying Cheaper," an investigation into the outsourcing of major airline repair work to lower-cost independent maintenance operations in the U.S. and abroad. (Tonight’s episode was originally supposed to be “Educating Sergeant Pantzke,” but was changed by the producers just this last week. Some papers and listings sources might still have the old information.)
