Local PBS SoCaL Programs for November

Posted by Michelle Merker on

We give thanks for November’s line-up of locally originated and produced programs, presented by PBS SoCaL.

As part of our Veteran’s month programming, Sands of War recounts the overlooked story of the Desert Training Center, established by General George Patton in the Mojave Desert, to prepare one million soldiers to enter the battle to win World War II. Narrated by Emmy® Award nominee Peter Coyote, and told through the personal experiences of WWII veterans, the program provides a compelling account of the young men and women thrust onto the stage of world conflict. Sands of War will air on PBS SoCaL HD November 10 at 7:30pm, and again on PBS SoCaL plus November 14 at 9:30pm.

What do baseball, bubblegum and buffalo have to do with the history of Avalon on Catalina Island? Find out on Buried History with Mark Walberg. In this program, the popular Antiques Roadshow host travels to small-town America in a vintage hearse and starting with the tombstones of those integral to the birth of a city to their present-day descendants, he’ll piece together the clues about each town’s genealogy. Buried History with Mark Walberg airs November 1 at 4:30pm, and November 15 at 7pm. Please visit the program web page for more information.

In December we will unwrap more quality programming!
