Despite what has been a financially

challenging time for WILL, your public broadcast stations have managed to achieve much during the past year. We launched a new digital FM transmitter, providing enhanced quality FM programming in addition to expanded reach for WILL’s AM programming on a digital multicast FM channel, while at the same time automating much of our on-air radio operations for significant labor savings. Illinois Gardener expanded its reach statewide through syndication on Illinois public television stations in all markets. Memorial Stadium: True Illini Spirit was broadcast in September on WILL, and in Chicago on WTTW. Underwriting and grant support resulted in this program producing net revenue for WILL, with additional support coming from on-air pledges and DVD sales through local retail outlets. We were one of 12 pilot stations selected by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to experiment with ways of deepening our local community impact, and we gained new insight

from General Manager Mark Leonard

by training with the Harwood Institute. We’re focused on creating a public media organization that’s committed to be a catalyst for positive change in our community. I am happy to report that we are already achieving tangible results! With a shift to securing external funding, our Community Engagement Initiative recently received a $120,000 grant from the Adobe Youth Voices Foundation, allowing us to disseminate our Youth Media Workshop model to national leaders and the public broadcast industry. We’ve also been selected to coach other public broadcast stations on methods of elevating their community impact. WILL’s Young Learners Initiative worked with several campus units to implement the Youth Literature Festival, the Health and Wellness Showcase and Rocket Into Space. We collaborated with the Child Care Resource Service (Department of Human and Community Development) on A Place of Our Own and Healthy Habits outreach initiatives, and founded C-U Fit Families as a community action group to help prevent childhood obesity.

We launched a new Web site, and collaborated with the Graduate School of Library and Information Science to develop a system for cataloging and archiving digital media. Students from GSLIS and the College of Media assisted with the Web site and in producing several webbased community engagement projects published on the site, including Voices of Great Schools Together, Central Illinois World War II Stories, and the Youth Media Workshop. With one award already to its credit, the Web site places WILL at the leading edge of online media. All of our activities serve as a powerful public engagement agent for the University of Illinois, contributing to the university’s recent certification in community engagement by the Carnegie Foundation. We will continue to focus on improving our communities by using the tools that we have in new and innovative ways. We work every day to maintain the trust that you have in us, and to demonstrate that we are good stewards of your financial investment. Thank you for your continued support of WILL.

Prairie Fire’s 2009 Season

First Up: A Look at First African-American Town, and Lincoln’s Views on Slavery The 2009 season premiere of

sculptures, monuments and other public artworks dedicated to Abraham Lincoln, including those located on the University of Illinois campus. And we examine Lincoln’s evolving thoughts on slavery and colonization and how race played an increasingly important part in his political development.

Prairie Fire, airing at 7:30 pm Thursday, March 26, tells the story of New Philadelphia, Ill., the first town founded by a free African American in U.S. history. We visit with University of Illinois archaeologists, who are unearthing the remains of this once racially integrated town 85 miles northwest of St. Louis, and learn about its founder, “Free” Frank McWorter. Although the site was designated a National Historic Landmark in January, it’s still largely unknown to the public. Prairie Fire series producer Steve Drake said he understood why after visiting the remote dig site. “I parked on a non-descript dirt road. I never would have guessed that the remains of such an important part of American history were being excavated nearby.” A portable lab, several holes in the ground and a bus lined with shelves filled with artifacts like dolls, bones and crockery were the only clues that history was being unearthed. “It always surprises me how many amazing things you can find here in central Illinois if you know where to look,” Steve said. “That’s one of the things that I love about

Prairie Fire; that we can find out about some of these little-known, out-of-the-way places and help bring them to our viewers.” Steve interviews two descendants of McWorter, siblings Gerald and Sandra McWorter, who talk about New Philadelphia’s role in the Underground Railroad and their pride in their great-great-grandfather. He also talks to U of I archaeologist Christopher Fennell, who is principal investigator at the dig near Barry, Ill. In other stories in the first episode, we meet a photographer who is traveling across America documenting the many

Governor Quinn on Illinois Budget Join WILL-TV and AM 580 for live coverage of Gov-

ernor Pat Quinn’s first budget message to the Illinois General Assembly at noon Wednesday, March 18, including reaction from legislative leaders and analysis from veteran Statehouse reporters. WILL-TV will repeat the address at 10 pm.

In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, every episode in the 2009 Prairie Fire season will include a feature story devoted to Lincoln’s life in central Illinois. This companion series to WILL-TV’s documentary Lincoln: Prelude to the Presidency will explore Lincoln’s formative years riding the Eighth Judicial Circuit as a traveling lawyer and how they shaped the man who became our 16th president. The Lincoln episodes were produced by Alison Davis Wood, who returns as Prairie Fire host this season. Steve said other highlights of the 2009 season include a behind-the-scenes tour of the Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Indiana, where abused or abandoned big cats find a home; we’ll see how a wind farm outside Bloomington is generating alternative energy; we’ll meet a group of enthusiasts who come from across the Midwest to race souped-up riding mowers to satisfy their need for speed; and we’ll visit airbrush artists, blacksmiths, fashion designers, memorabilia collectors, and many other people and places with intriguing central Illinois stories.

Analog TV

Shut-Off Delayed As Patterns went to press, Congress

passed legislation postponing the analog TV shut-off until June 12, 2009, and extending the converter coupon program until July 31, 2009. Some stations have decided to end their analog service on the original date of February 17; however, WILL will continue broadcasting its analog signal. WILL is here to help viewers through the transition. If you still have questions, please give us a call at 217-333-7300. PATTERNS • March 2009

What’s Cooking at WILL? What is it that draws us to those

comfort foods of chili, soup and stew? According to our WILL audience, the attraction is based on equal parts of tradition, creativity and connecting with others. Those were some of the comments submitted with your favorite recipes—the focus of our new Chili, Soups and Stews cooking show debuting at 7 pm Monday, March 9. Jodi Francis of Champaign upholds the tradition of making Hazel’s chili (her mother-in-law’s recipe) every winter while Ericka Crist of Atwood cooks the same minestrone soup with herb garlic garnish she created as a teenager to now feed her own family. Ephie Crain of Tilton knows that her vegetable beef soup is considered a staple of her family’s annual weenie roast. Lisa Braddock of Fisher received a great white chicken chili recipe from a family of campers last summer, thanks to her job as campground host for Utah’s Arches National Park. Even when recipes originated with sources other than family, they perse-

vere. Carol Buss of Urbana lost the magazine long ago, but still makes a hearty oven-baked beef daube stew. Likewise with Reva Egherman of Champaign, who got her recipe for Riddle’s winter-perfect honey lamb stew from a restaurant in St. Louis. Beverly Foote of Charleston used her creativity to turn a casserole recipe into cauliflower and legume soup. Paula Wells of Urbana took five years, along with suggestions from numerous friends and family, to perfect her Chisholm Trail chili. Ruth Raines of Champaign employs the philosophy that soup recipes are refined over the years, based on the discovery that what is left out is as important as what is put in.

That’s especially true in how cooks construct chili. The recipes we received include mainstream variations of beef, tomatoes, chilis and beans, such as the one from Nadine Stewart of Jacksonville, but also include vegetarian varieties like butternut squash chili made by Meredith Schroeer of Normal. Mark Hurts of Tolono goes all out with his chili verde, which features pork, chicken, potatoes and four kinds of peppers. So before we bid farewell to winter, join us to discover who’s in the kitchen with hosts David Inge and Doyle Moore for our live studio program of Chili, Soups and Stews. And stay tuned for details on the companion cookbook so you can add all of the great recipes to your repertoire!

Now That’s a Progressive Dinner! Continuing a public televi-

sion tradition of showcasing culinary stars, a new program brings together six of America’s favorite chefs, who pay tribute to our diversity in food and culture. Setting the stage for an hour’s worth of mouthwatering dishes perfect for family and friends, A Moveable Feast at 3 pm Sunday, March 8, begins with all of the chefs sharing the stage in a communal kitchen. In the spirit of a potluck dinner, each chef contributes a single course to the banquet, then “passes the plate” to the next. Leaving the group kitchen, we’re transported to Boston and Ming Tsai’s restaurant, Blue Ginger. Master of East-West cuisine, Tsai prepares ginger syrup, the basis for his golden ginger thaihito and ginger

margarita. Then Ruth Reichl of Gourmet’s Diary of a Foodie picks up the tongs and presents some quick and tasty appetizers, including shrimp curry in lettuce leaves. Taking a quick drive from Manhattan to Queens, Lidia Bastianich rolls up her sleeves and prepares a delectable

‘primi’ dish—one of her trademark pastas featuring fresh-made pesto. Arriving in Chicago, Rick Bayless creates a memorable Mexican dish—cafe tacuba-style creamy chicken enchiladas—confirming his role in bringing authentic Mexican cuisine to America. Using a recipe flown in from Spain, Jose Andres prepares a zesty dish—pork loin baked in sea salt with sliced Spanish-cured ham. And to end on a sweet note, Christopher Kimball brings the whole group back together for an apple dessert that’s classically American. A Moveable Feast concludes with all six chefs tasting their colleagues’ foods and sharing stories from this unique progressive dinner experience.

A Monarch’s Madness Few actors could follow roles like Magneto in

X-Men and Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy with King Lear, but Ian McKellen proves himself worthy of the task. Arguably the finest Shakespearean actor of his generation, he re-creates his recent stage performance of the tragic monarch in a special television adaptation for Great Performances, airing at 8 pm Wednesday, March 25. The program includes nearly all the original cast members of the sold-out Royal Shakespeare Company production that premiered in April 2007 and toured internationally before concluding in January 2008. Joining McKellen are Romola Garai (Atonement), Frances Barber and Monica Dolan as King Lear’s daughters, Cordelia, Goneril and Regan, respectively; William Gaunt as his longtime ally Gloucester; Ben Mayjes as Gloucester’s rejected son, Edgar; Philip Winchester as Gloucester’s illegitimate son, Edmund; and Sylvester McCoy as Lear’s Fool.

s Clockwise from above: Romola Garai as Cordelia, Ian McKellen as Lear, Frances Barber and Monica Dolan as Goneril and Regan, and Philip Winchester as Edmund.

Last of the Summer Wine Marathon Features a Special Guest It seems only fitting to honor the world’s longest-

running sitcom with a 2-hour marathon session, so that’s just what we’re doing at 8:30 pm Tuesday, March 10 (repeated 9:20 pm Thursday, March 12), as part of our pledge drive. The bonus? The show’s producer, Alan J.W. Bell, will join us in studio March 10 to share a special behind-the-scenes film never before seen on television! What a great opportunity for all Last of the Summer Wine fans to show your support for this enduring classic! PATTERNS • March 2009
