Adopting tomorrow’s technology today By Mark Leonard, General Manager Master control has traditionally been the technical “hub” of a television station—where programs are recorded, stored and played back over the air for broadcast via the transmitter. With the move to digital technology, these facilities have become increasingly complicated and short lived, requiring a much shorter replacement cycle than we faced previously. For WILL, most of the equipment is less than 10 years old, yet is approaching the end of its useful lifespan. With federal grant programs for equipment replacement now eliminated, the prospect of funding a $1 million master control facility is daunting, particularly with analog television and radio studios long overdue for replacement and upgrade. Instead of replacing our existing master control, Illinois Public Media is entering into a partnership with nine other public television stations to establish a shared master control facility. Reliable, highspeed Internet connectivity now makes it possible to have a single facility serve multiple stations’ program recording and playback needs remotely, sharing not only the equipment investment, but also some of the related staffing. The technology has been applied previously within commercial television broadcasting, usually linking stations owned by a single owner. In public broadcasting, each station is independently owned and licensed, making the move to shared facilities a bit trickier. We have moved cautiously, spending the last several years researching our options and exploring different budget scenarios. We have opted to join the Digital Convergence Alliance, a group of 10 founding stations that are outfitting a “hardened” facility in Jacksonville, Fla., with state-of- the-art digital storage, switching and backup capability. The facility was built to military specification to survive a category 5 hurricane, and features backup power and redundant Internet connectivity. It will be staffed 24/7, ensuring increased quality and reliability for the partner stations. This change won’t be noticeable to our viewers, and all programming decisions will remain with WILL staff. Much like the computer industry, we see this shared “cloud” facility as a necessary step to controlling out-of-control hardware expenses while also addressing reliability and upgrade challenges that our industries share.
Time to make more history with Downton If it seems that you’ve been waiting forever for Downton Abbey’s third season, you’re among the more than 17 million fans who made the show’s second season the most watched series in Masterpiece history. Your patience will be rewarded as the new season premieres with a two-hour episode at 8 pm Sunday, Jan. 6, on WILL-TV. The seven new shows build on the drama of last season—which included Downton’s reluctant heir, Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), recovering from his war wounds and planning to finally marry the eldest of Lord and Lady Grantham’s daughters, Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery); youngest daughter Sybil (Jessica Brown-Findlay), eloping to Ireland with the political minded chauffeur, Branson (Allen Leech); and middle daughter Edith (Laura Carmichael), seeming to lose out on all prospects for love. Sweeping change was also at work among the servants, including the marriage of head housemaid Anna (Joanne Froggatt) and valet John Bates (Brendan Coyle) before his arrest for the murder of his ex-wife. As the third season opens, we meet Martha Levinson (Shirley MacLaine), the very American mother of Cora (Elizabeth McGovern), whose arrival sets up a clash with Robert’s mother, Lady Violet (Maggie Smith). Other glimpses of new drama include: lovebird servants Anna and Bates face
new ordeals in their star-crossed marriage; Downton’s impeccable butler, Carson (Jim Carter), breaks in a new footman, who happens to be the nephew of the scheming lady’s maid O’Brien (Siobhan Finneran). Following Matthew and Mary’s engagement, Robert (Hugh Bonneville) sticks to his duty to maintain Downton more firmly than ever—even as other great houses are crippled psychologically and financially in the wake of World War I. In this changing landscape nothing is assured, and the war-weary Crawleys may need to fight a new battle to safeguard their beloved Downton.

New radio host and Focus producer join staff Illinois Public Media welcomes two new staffers this month: Chris Berube, our new host for Morning Edition and The Afternoon Magazine, and Lindsey Moon, our new Focus producer. Chris, who has worked most recently for the NPR show Radiolab and the American Public Media program Marketplace, begins work Jan. 14. A May 2012 graduate of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, the Toronto native has also produced radio content for Public Radio International’s Bullseye and Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s The Current, written stories for The Globe and Mail in Toronto, and been a guest host on CBC Radio 3. “I’m very excited to join the team at WILL. It’s an ambitious station that is doing a lot of great work for the community and the region,” Chris said. “With the afternoon show, I feel like there’s a great opportunity to explore complicated topics in an intelligent and thorough way.” Lindsey has worked as a talk show producer at Iowa Public Radio, where she won first-place awards for both general and

investigative reporting, and most recently as a general assignment reporter at Wisconsin Public Radio. She’ll be on the job Jan. 7. “I am looking forward to building on Focus’ legacy while working to keep the show relevant in an era that is largely defined by new media,” she said. “I am also really excited to dig into the culture and community that WILL serves. I hope to try and capture that in Focus programs that I produce. I really would like to work closely with IPM’s community engagement team to try and produce some remote broadcasts in the Champaign-Urbana community.” Kimberlie Kranich, Illinois Public Media director of community content and engagement, said Chris and Lindsey are rising stars in the fields of journalism, multi-media production and community engagement. “We are looking forward to their skill, passion and enthusiasm as they join an awardwinning team that seeks to create impact journalism in the communities served by WILL,” she said.

Growing pains and fighting for survival Unlike places that have been thrown into a state of crisis by a disaster, Austin, Texas, has been thrown into crisis by success. Its population has skyrocketed, but along with the economic advantages has come a considerable identity crisis. In the Sunday, Jan. 6, installment at 1 pm on WILLAM, State of the Re:Union looks at the tension between “keeping Austin weird” and its growing success. Then Sunday, Jan. 20, State of the Re:Union journeys to rural Appalachia, long portrayed as a place of people at the mercy of the region’s poverty or bigotry. This episode tells stories of residents fighting for the well-being of their land, people and culture.

Although controversial in 1986, Paul Simon’s Graceland album—an experiment in crosscultural collaboration—today is considered one of the most significant recordings of its time.

The perils of proximity
Volcanoes create new land, change landscapes and destroy civilizations, but more than two billion years ago, they also breathed life into our world. From the ocean abyss to snow-covered summits, the six-part Life on Fire series (9 pm Wednesdays beginning Jan. 2) paints a detailed picture of the struggles required to survive around volcanoes. Spectacular scenery provides the backdrop for the extraordinary animals and plants that have learned to juggle with fire. This three-part miniseries focuses on three fields that Sir David Attenborough (right) feels have been transformed most profoundly: filmmaking, science and the environment. Richly illustrated with the sequences that Attenborough has spent 60 years capturing, new interviews in which he revisits the content, stories and locations that were featured in his landmark series, and packed with the personal anecdotes of the BBC’s most accomplished raconteur, Nature presents Attenborough’s Life Stories at 7 pm Wednesdays, Jan. 23 and 30. 10 PATTERNS • JANUARY 2013

From Broadway’s golden age, names like Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, the Gershwins, Arthur Laurents, Jerome Robbins, Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim immediately come to mind.

The struggle over emancipation
Vividly bringing to life the epic struggles of the men and women who fought to end slavery, American Experience: The Abolitionists tells the intertwined stories of Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Angelina Grimké, Harriet Beecher Stowe and John Brown—and their leadership of the most important civil rights crusade in American history. The series, which airs in three parts at 8 pm Tuesdays beginning Jan. 8, comes 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation took effect in January 1863.
Six episodes combine history, biography, iconic performances, new analysis and the personal interest of actors Ethan Hawke, Jeremy Irons, Derek Jacobi, Trevor Nunn, Joely Richardson and David Tennant to tell the story behind the stories of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. Each episode combines interviews with actors, directors and scholars, along with visits to key locations, clips from some of the most celebrated film and television adaptations, and illustrative excerpts from the plays specially staged for the series at Shakespeare’s Globe in London. The first two parts of Shakespeare Uncovered air beginning at 8 pm Friday, Jan. 25.

membership news & events Meet one of the 2012 Lincoln Laureates She grew up in Wisconsin, but Jean Driscoll’s extensive personal achievements and outreach on behalf of the University of Illinois have earned her Illinois’ highest honor, the Order of Lincoln. A Milwaukee native, Driscoll is a four-time Paralympian who won 12 medals at the Paralympic Games and two Olympic exhibition medals, plus still holds the world record in the 10,000-meter wheelchair event. She is also the first eight-time winner of the Boston Marathon. WILL-TV will air the Lincoln Laureates awards ceremony at 8 pm Friday, Jan. 11, followed at 9 pm by WILL-TV’s 1996 documentary about her, Against the Wind. We spoke with Driscoll recently about the award and much more. People may not realize that you were recruited to play wheelchair basketball at the U of I, but then pursued track and road racing. In high school, I was involved with a variety of wheelchair sports, including tennis and ice hockey. I was one of the quickest players on the basketball court and always liked going fast. At some point in college, I realized that I most enjoyed being outdoors and especially on the open road, so once I entered grad school, I focused strictly on track and road racing. I learned so much from my teammates Ann Cody and Sharon Hedrick, and received incredible mentorship from my coaches Marty Morse and Brad Hedrick. With a more than 30-year window into the changing paradigms for people with disabilities, what do you feel are two of the biggest changes across the board? The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) made people more aware of the barriers for people with disabilities and improved accessibility standards tremendously. I’m reminded of what Tim Nugent [a pioneer in disability education and resources who founded the U of I Division of Disability Resources and Educational Services, or DRES, the first post-secondary disability support service program in the 18 PATTERNS • JANUARY 2013
world] always said—that changes in the environment, such as curb cuts, reduce the impact of disability and help create a level playing field. And leveling the field gives people with disabilities opportunities to achieve all kinds of things. Another help is the creation of new technologies such as voice-activated software. It’s something that offers advantages for everyone, but it came about because of the deeper understanding of the benefits of adaptive tools. You made the Against the Wind documentary while you were still competing. What commentary would you add about the new scenes in your life? First, I really enjoyed making the documentary, and I appreciate the investment WILL put into the project. When you’re competing, you’re necessarily focused on yourself—from the training schedule to what you’re eating. As I transitioned past that phase, I found that I really enjoy bringing people together to create a common good. That’s why I love the opportunity (as an assistant dean of advancement for the College of Applied Health Sciences, or AHS) to interact with our students, faculty, alumni and donors. Groundbreaking work is being done on campus every day and when it is supported
through gifts of time and resources, the university’s legacies expand in new and exciting ways. Not only did you receive the Order of Lincoln, but you were also inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame. Yes, 2012 was a good year! The Order of Lincoln is special because of how the University of Illinois changed my life. It is a privilege to share the award with my Illinois family and so many important people who have supported and encouraged me. And since I received the Lincoln Academy’s student laureate award in 1990, the recognition is even more meaningful. I get emotional when I think about everything that the University of Illinois has done for me. This honor is a direct result of the significant support provided by the
U of I, AHS, DRES and important mentors along the way. It’s still that way. But now I have an opportunity to not only share the stories of the amazing work of our students and alumni, but also to highlight the ongoing leadership provided by this world-renown university. On the Olympic Hall of Fame, I’m incredibly humbled to be a member and grateful to everyone who voted for me. When you’re out there training in all kinds of weather, it can be grueling and lonely. Then you realize there are fans who appreciate what you’re doing and are cheering for you. And when other people celebrate your success with you, it’s a mountaintop experience.
Reserve your ticket for Rick Steves’ travel talk Travel writer and public TV host Rick Steves will share what he’s learned in 30 years of travel during a special fundraising event for Illinois Public Media at 6 pm Thursday, March 14, at the I Hotel in Champaign. He’ll talk about how travel has broadened his perspective and why that matters. Included are tidbits such as why India is his favorite country, why trains are pulling into European stations with birds squished onto their windshields, and how travel challenges truths we’ve always just assumed were “self-evident and God-given.”
From Kurdish wood carvers proudly holding up their chisels to teary-eyed Germans atop their new parliament building, the world is changing and America is challenged, says Steves. Today’s travel writer can be much like the medieval court jester, he says. He can bring home the truth and not get killed. Tickets are $35 and seating is limited. Premium seating is also still available. For more information or to make your reservation, email Tracy Wikoff at twikoff@ illinois.edu or call her at 217-333-7300. PATTERNS • JANUARY 2013 19
January Community Cinema
Soul Food Junkies Soul food is a quintessential American cuisine, with a rich history and an abiding significance to black cultural identity. But with its core celebration of all things fried and smothered, it has also had lasting effects on African Americans’ health. In Soul Food Junkies, Illinois Public Media’s January Community Cinema selection, filmmaker Byron Hurt looks at the past and future of soul food—from its roots in Western Africa and its incarnation in the American South, to its contribution to modern health crises in communities of color. Join us for a free screening of the film, as well as a discussion of the issues it raises, at 6 pm Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the Champaign
Public Library, Robeson Rooms A & B. Panelists include Doug Williams of Faith in Action, Gayle and Ronick Frazier of Flava Catering, and Imani Bazzell of SisterNet. Hurt, who spoke in Champaign-Urbana in 2007 at WILL’s screening of his film Hip Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes, sets out to learn more about the soul-food tradition and its relevance to black cultural identity. His exploration was inspired by his father’s lifelong love affair with the highfat, calorie-rich traditional soul-food diet and his unwillingness to give it up even in the face of a life-threatening illness. Soul Food Junkies airs on Independent Lens at 9 pm Monday, Jan. 14.
