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.
This weekend, gather your curious little ones for a mini-marathon of "Daniel the Tiger's Neighborhood" and "Elinor Wonders Why"at 7 p.m. on Sept. 18, 19 and 20.
Journey to three of the most exotic, mysterious and remote islands on the planet: Madagascar, Borneo and Hawaii. Isolated from the rest of the world, they harbor remarkable wildlife and pioneering human communities found nowhere else on Earth.
"Nova" explores new discoveries and how we have come this far on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Arizona PBS.
