Join us for a Veterans Day special, as we pay tribute to the men and women who serve our country with a look at issues affecting them. We start with the history of the G.I. Bill with Arizona state historian Marshall Trimble. Former Arizona governor and U.S. senator Ernest McFarland is credited with being the father of the G.I. Bill. Then, we take you to downtown Mesa where one veteran-owned shop is having success in the brewing business. We also visit a job fair aimed at helping veterans. We wrap up our special with the U.S. Army Field Band.
There are still parts of our planet yet to be discovered. Explorer and naturalist Steve Backshall pursues incredible journeys and world firsts — unclimbed peaks, unexplored cave systems and uncharted landscapes — setting foot where no human has been before. "Expedition with Steve Backshall" comes to Arizona PBS Wednesdays at 9 p.m. starting Jan. 15.
The Emmy Award-winning anthology series featuring unforgettable people, communities and moments in history returns to Arizona PBS on Mondays at 9 p.m. starting Oct. 28.
