Local PBS SoCaL Programs for March

Posted by Michelle Merker on

Don’t forget to “spring forward” this month as March features locally originated and produced program favorites for viewers to enjoy, presented by PBS SoCaL!


Adventures take flight in honor of Women’s History Month with “The Legend of Pancho Barnes and the Happy Bottom Riding Club”. This documentary chronicles the thrilling life and extraordinary times of Southern California native and aviation pioneer Florence Lowe "Pancho" Barnes, one of the most colorful and accomplished women pilots of the earliest 20th Century. You can enjoy the film Sunday, March 8 at 9am and 3pm on PBS SoCaL plus.

Our salute to remarkable women continues with an encore of “Mia, a dancer’s journey”. Maverick ballerina Mia Slavenska broke audiences’ conventional thought about ballet, and chose to express dance as an art form. She was one of the first women to own her own dance troupe, and was the first to turn a popular play/movie into a successful ballet. This film takes a bow Thursday, March 26 at 7pm on PBS SoCaL.
