For many years I've watched different shows on PBS, but I particularly enjoy Friday evenings on PBS. My Mother is discovering she likes it as well. :o)
I enjoy Horizon, Washington Week and the McLaughlin Group, mostly because it's the news behind the news that you hear, to get an idea of what's really going on beneath the surface.
The other show I really enjoy is called NOW on PBS. The latest show was on India and their new economy with the new jobs being shipped from the U.S., as well as those being created as a result of their economy. Be sure to check out India Rising, as well as a previous show, Taxing The Poor. You will find these to be very enlightening.
