PBS “Frontline’s” well-reported, rather alarming special airing Tuesday night, titled “Amazon Empire – The Rise and Reign of Jeff Bezos,” unpacks the smiling cardboard box and finds a lot that should worry us.

Kids, it’s time to activate your creature power suits. Chris and Martin Kratt will be in town Tuesday for “Wild Kratts Live 2.0.” The show brings “Wild Kratts” adventures to the stage. “Chris and I are in real life doing our ‘Wild Kratts’ thing,” said Martin Kratt, who co-hosts the popular PBS Kids nature show with his brother. The brothers’ other shows include “Zoboomafoo” and “Kratts’ Creatures.”
He is best known for what he meant to children. That was, after all, what Fred Rogers’s life and career were all about – every song he sang, every puppet he voiced, every considered word he spoke on his beloved television program, “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” Rogers was for kids.
PBS documentary “KOREA: The Never-Ending War” examines the lasting social and political costs of the Korean War – a conflict largely forgotten in the U.S.
Its main points are that there were people living in the Americas for millenniums before Columbus entered without knocking from the east (around 100 million when he got here, though that number was soon to fall precipitously); that these people formed diverse and complex societies with a common reverence for nature, from which they do not see themselves as distinct; that their science, from astronomical observations to experimental agriculture, was also a form of worship; that tradition and storytelling were the keys to their survival in the face of oppression, slaughter and Christian missionary zeal; and that corn is king.

PBS says more witnesses have detailed sexual misconduct allegations against talk-show host Tavis Smiley, who was suspended in December and later fired.
In making a documentary about disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, PBS’ “Frontline” wanted to focus less on what he did than on how the alleged sexual misconduct went on for so long.
The low-key, low-tech “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” presented Rogers as one adult in a busy world who always had time to listen to children. That legacy burns for many in these turbulent times.
A television series – “We’ll Meet Again” – that begins this month on PBS includes an episode – “Rescued from Mount St. Helens” – built around the 1980 volcanic eruption.
“ ‘Places to Love’ is about finding the experiences, the destinations, but, most importantly, the people who really make us feel like we’re part of a place,” Brown said.
Talk-show host Tavis Smiley isn’t just upset with PBS for firing him on sexual misconduct charges. He’s upset about his depiction in the media.
Tavis Smiley has defended himself from allegations he had sexual relationships with subordinates and created an abusive workplace environment, denying any wrongdoing and saying PBS made a mistake by suspending him from his talk show. PBS almost immediately fired back, saying he “needs to get his story straight.”
PBS has suspended radio and TV host Tavis Smiley after finding what it called “troubling allegations” of sexual misconduct, making him the second high-profile star to be ousted from a network known for its high-brow, genteel programming.
CBS News and PBS both cut ties to Charlie Rose on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after several women who worked with him on his PBS interview show alleged a pattern of sexual misconduct, including groping and walking naked in front of them.
PBS says it is immediately halting distribution of Charlie Rose’s interview program and CBS News suspended him following The Washington Post’s report of eight women who accused the veteran newsman of multiple unwanted sexual advances and inappropriate behavior.
