Tune in to KYUK – TV for  season 3 of MASTERPIECE CLASSIC “Downton Abbey,” season two of the hit BBC drama “Call the Midwife” and more exciting new programs from PBS.

The Crawley family’s fate hangs in the balance when MASTERPIECE CLASSIC “Downton Abbey, Season 3” returns to PBS on Sunday nights beginning in January.  A bonanza of new dramas and documentaries and the return of several other hit series means a powerful winter/spring PBS season and KYUK-TV will bring it all to you.

Season two of the runaway British hit CALL THE MIDWIFE will air on KYUK on Sundays throughout the spring, along with “Mr. Selfridge,” a new drama from MASTERPIECE, continuing the celebrated night of destination dramas.

AMERICAN EXPERIENCE’s bold new series THE ABOLITIONISTS premieres in January; MAKERS: WOMEN WHO MAKE AMERICA, a three-hour special about the role of women in shaping America over the last 50 years, premieres in February; Ken Burns’s film THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE airs in April; and in May, CONSTITUTION USA with Peter Sagal looks at the U.S. Constitution — how it works and how it doesn’t.

Other high-profile programs include intimate portraits of Mel Brooks and Philip Roth from AMERICAN MASTERS; new seasons of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW and MARKET WARRIORS; and the return of the best independent films to Monday nights, with POV’s “Reportero” and INDEPENDENT LENS’ “Soul Food Junkies” leading a crop of acclaimed titles. A new season of PIONEERS OF TELEVISION, narrated by Ryan Seacrest, begins, and new “Exploration Wednesday” science and nature programs feature NATURE’s “Attenborough’s Life Stories” and NOVA’s “Earth From Space” and “Australia’s First 3 Billion Years”.   PBS and KYUK’s ongoing commitment to arts programming on Fridays offers SHAKESPEARE UNCOVERED, a star-studded new series about Shakespeare’s greatest works.

Previews of many highlighted shows are available on PBS YouTube Channel.

KYUK-TV is your destination in Bethel for the best in drama, science, independent film and much more.  PBS programs can be seen in Bethel on KYUK channel 15.1 or GCI cable channel 7.
