History_Detectives_LogoWe just got word... PBS has agreed to renew the acclaimed series, HISTORY DETECTIVES, for two more seasons!

Since its first broadcast in 2003, the series has been a hit with the OETA audiences, as well as PBS audiences across the country. Season eight of HISTORY DETECTIVES will broadcast in summer of 2010; season nine will air in summer of 2011.

Mysterious artifacts, structures and documents, often submitted by viewers, dispatch the series team of detectives across the country to hunt down the facts behind family folklore. They sleuth out the connections between puzzling objects and defining moments in history. The detectives apply their expertise and knowledge, combined with the latest forensic technology and plain old determined research to unearth the untold stories of America's past.
