I don’t think I’ve ever typed PBS’s channel number into my TV remote, which probably means I’ve been missing out seeing as it “showcases the best American history, science, music, current affairs, arts and culture”.
You would expect that to include a bit of baseball-related programming and it turns out that it does.
The channel will be broadcasting the Ken Burns Baseball series over the coming week, with Part One airing at 22.15 on Monday. Each installment will be repeated several times over the week, although it doesn’t look as though the most recent two-part ‘tenth inning’ will be included.
There is also a one-hour documentary about Roberto Clemente being shown at 21.00 on Friday.
This could just be a baseball-themed week, but it might be worth checking the schedule every now and then to see if there are any more baseball programmes on the channel.
