What makes a website work? By Jack Brighton, Director of New Media & Innovation, email@example.com What makes us delighted about the Web? In the most basic sense, it’s finding what we’re looking for. Or finding something great that we didn’t expect. As your public TV and radio stations, we can provide on our website most everything we do on the air. We can make it more accessible and interactive, allowing you to time shift, download and travel with us anywhere in the world. We can also make it the most confusing experience anyone ever imagined. Confusion is not our goal! The new WILL website was built on the lessons we’ve learned since University of Illinois students Marc Andreessen and Eric Bina developed NCSA Mosaic in 1993, pioneering a still-unfolding revolution in how we access, share and create information, media, knowledge and nonsense of all types. You will probably notice that our new site is less cluttered and faster to use. The site also works well on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, and is an example of a technique called Responsive Web Design. Most importantly, the new WILL website makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. How do we know this? Analytics technology allows us to understand how people are using our site. We can see which pages people visit, how they got there and how long they stay on particular pages. We can’t see who they are, and we aren’t about to invade anyone’s privacy! But we can tell what most people are looking for, so we can build in ways to make that information readily apparent. That’s why specific things are obvious when you go to our new home page: News, Agriculture, Schedules, Weather and Listen. The vast majority of our website visitors are looking for these things. Meanwhile, our new navigation provides quick access to everything else on the site. And because we also want you to find great things you didn’t expect, we present tantalizing glimpses of station events, specials and highlights, without clutter and confusion. At least, we hope we’re doing these things well, and that our new website works for you. If so, I’d love to hear it, but if not I want to hear that, too! As always, your feedback and suggestions help us make our website better tomorrow than it is today.
The Bletchley Circle follows four women with extraordinary ability to break codes—a skill honed during World War II when they worked undercover at Bletchley Park, site of the United Kingdom’s main decryption establishment.
theory about the crimes seriously. When she realizes the murderer is creating a pattern without knowing it, Susan becomes convinced she and her former colleagues can crack the murders and bring the culprit to justice.
Susan, Millie, Lucy and Jean have returned to civilian life, keeping their intelligence work secret from even family and friends. But a series of ghastly murders targeting women reunites the team as they set out to decode the pattern behind the crimes.
The new three-part series, which combines a vivid portrait of post-war Britain with an original mystery that is equal parts thriller and whodunit, debuted last September in the U.K. to critical acclaim. The first episode follows Masterpiece’s Mr. Selfridge at 9 pm Sunday, April 21, and continues at that time Sundays, April 28 and May 5, on WILL-TV.
Two-time BAFTA award-winner Anna Maxwell Martin (South Riding, Bleak House) stars as Susan, now a housewife with two children, who has collected data on a series of murders and tried, unsuccessfully, to convince the police that another is imminent.

New murder mystery set in 1950s London
Rachael Stirling (Women in Love, Boy Meets Girl) is Millie, the feistiest of the bunch, conversant in 14 languages, worldly and street smart. Sophie Rundle (right) plays Lucy, a young woman equipped with a photographic memory. Julie Graham (Doc Martin), oldest of the four, is the former head of the Bletchley Park unit. Initially unaware of her Bletchley background, the police don’t take Susan’s PATTERNS • APRIL 2013 1

Looking forward to our April radio membership drive After our first Clear the Air campaign for WILL Radio in February—which exceeded our $40,000 goal by more than $3,000 without pledge interruptions of more than 60 seconds—many listeners wonder if every drive will be like this. While we were thrilled with the response we received in February, we also realize that one approach doesn’t work for all listeners. For example, despite the fact that we matched our February 2012 drive total, 2 PATTERNS • APRIL 2013

we heard from 90 fewer pledgers and saw a very significant decline in new members. Although financial goals are a big part of our fund drives, we also see the drives as a great opportunity to attract a diverse group of new supporters to WILL. So our annual spring membership drive toward the end of April will include more typical pledge breaks—which remain one of the best ways WILL can share the story of our stations and the importance of our funding partnership with loyal listeners. But thanks in part to the strength of the Clear the Air campaign, we’ll also be experimenting with decreasing the amount of “pledge talk” during our core shows and suspending pledge breaks during some programs. And when we reach our drive goal, we promise to end all pledge breaks. We’re working to find the best balance between sharing our message, meeting our financial goals and providing the fewest content interruptions possible. Thank you for your support!
Coming soon: New WILL Radio app! Soon you can listen to WILL Radio anywhere by downloading our new free WILL Radio app for smart phones and mobile devices. The new app will be a way to listen with one touch, said Lisa Bralts, marketing director at Illinois Public Media. “The new app will make it easy to listen to programs that aired earlier in the day, such as Focus or Live and Local. If you get interrupted, you can stop listening and pick up where you left off,” Lisa said. “It’s another way of meeting people where they are,” she said. “Especially now that we’re streaming our FM signal, we want to make it possible for people to listen on demand.” We expect the app to be available within the month, if not sooner. Stay tuned!

A new way to listen to WILL-FM One of the reasons we’re excited about our new website is that we’re able to stream our FM radio signal over the Internet. WILLAM streaming began in July of 2000, but WILL-FM streaming was delayed because of requirements that we report our playlists to rights holders for the music.

Radio listeners told us they were eager to connect to FM on a Web stream. “It gives us another platform to make our quality FM programming available,” WILL station manager Bob Culkeen said. “We made it a priority during the redesign of our website.” During the first week of FM streaming, our Web server reached the limit on listeners able to connect to the radio streams. “That’s a good sign that people were already taking advantage of the new PATTERNS • APRIL 2013 3

What we’re focusing on By Lindsey Moon, Focus producer As a supporter of WILL, you already know that Focus has been transitioning. I’m here to assure you that the dedicated and talented team at WILL is determined to make this transition an empowering part of Focus’ rich legacy. The show has always inspired a special kind of community, one that values truth and is made up of people who can see past skin color, religious/ political affiliation, ethnic identity and gender to talk civilly about the problems and controversies that are relevant in our world today. Just like you always have, by tuning in to Focus, you’re still joining that community. We are continuing to foster conversation and answer your questions, and I’m working to make Focus more lively and engaging than ever. Our conversations may only be on the air for an hour each day, but we’re going beyond the headlines online 24/7. On WILL’s new website and on Focus’ new Facebook and Twitter pages, you can find out what’s coming up and can give us input about what you want to hear and who you want to hear from long before a show makes it to air. We’re creating a new schedule for regular program guests, and the show is soon getting theme music. Tune in every third Friday for personal finance advice, and let us know what questions you have about your lawn and garden every second Friday of the month from now until October. As producer, I’m committed to building the Focus community and making the show stronger than ever. I can’t wait to hear your feedback. Reach me on Twitter @lindseysmoon or @Focus580 or email email@example.com.

Singing America’s music
Girl Model, a new film from POV, goes behind the facade of the modeling industry by following two people whose lives intersect because of it. Ashley is a deeply conflicted American model scout, and 13-year-old Nadya (right), plucked from a remote Siberian village and promised a lucrative career in Japan, is her latest discovery. As the young girl searches for glamour and an escape from poverty, she confronts the harsh realities of a culture that worships youth—and an industry that makes perpetual childhood a globally traded commodity. The 90-minute program airs at 9 pm Friday, April 19.
The individual side of exercise Our one-size-fits-all approach to maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle is rarely questioned, but with recent advances in genetic testing technology and brain stimulation techniques, scientists are uncovering the new and surprising truths about what exercise is really doing to our bodies, and why each of us responds to it differently. Now, in The Truth About Exercise (9 pm Wednesday, April 10) physician and journalist Michael Mosley reveals those truths.

Ken Burns examines a notorious crime
Late in the evening of April 19, 1989, Tricia Meili, a 28-year-old investment banker, went jogging through Central Park in New York City. When she was found hours later, she had been brutally raped, beaten and left for dead. The Central Park Five (8 pm Tuesday, April 16), a new film from Ken Burns, examines the notorious crime, the media response and the public outcry it triggered. In addition, the film addresses the miscarriage of justice that followed the crime, probing larger issues about our nation’s complicated past.

Jon Shenk’s The Island President is the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced—the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. After bringing democracy to the Maldives after 30 years of despotic rule, Nasheed is now faced with an even greater challenge: a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives, one of the most low-lying countries in the world, enough to make them uninhabitable. The Island President captures Nasheed’s first year of office, culminating in his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009, where the film provides a rare glimpse of the political horse-trading that goes on at such a top-level global assembly. When hope fades for a written accord to be signed, Nasheed makes a stirring speech that salvages an agreement and marks him as a powerful voice for urgent action on climate change. Join us for a free screening of The Island President and a follow-up discussion beginning at 6 pm Tuesday, April 9, at the Champaign Public Library. The program also airs on WILL-TV at 9 pm Monday, April 22. 18 PATTERNS • APRIL 2013

Look after the future of WILL Join our Legacy Circle members What we pass on to future generations goes beyond the shape of a chin or ability to sing in tune. It’s more than handing down a special recipe, stories about World War II or a fierce loyalty to the Cubs or the Cardinals. Through a lifetime of experience, we learn how to position a mitt to catch a fly ball, to build a sturdy sand castle, to stretch a meal for unexpected company and to rally support for a worthy community cause. That knowledge and caring doesn’t stop with us—it continues in the lives of people we’ve known, places we’ve cherished and organizations we’ve been a part of. We all want to leave something of ourselves on this Earth. And we do so in more ways than we can imagine, often without knowing how we’ve influenced the life of another person. As a supporter of Illinois Public Media, you’ve helped us touch the lives of thousands of users of our service.
