Message to Our Members

The New Year is already in full swing, and I’m excited to tell you about several exciting projects that are already underway at NET. First, we are producing “more of the stories you love” for our popular Nebraska Stories series. New episodes from the eighth season air on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. CT on NET. Many of the stories we tell start with a note or quick chat with someone when our staff attends events in local communities. With that in mind, we’ve updated the Nebraska Stories webpage (netNebraska.org/nebraskastories) so you can submit your idea for a story, watch past episodes and search for stories from your own part of the state by topic or location. The second of two documentaries about sex trafficking in Nebraska airs on NET this month, and we are screening the Indie Lens Pop-Up film The Bad Kids at events in Scottsbluff, Lincoln and West Point. We are also continuing our celebration of the state’s sesquicentennial with more Nebraska 150 History Moments spots airing on television. By now, I hope you’ve discovered Masterpiece: Victoria. This beautifully produced new drama about England’s Queen Victoria follows the diminutive young woman who ascends to the throne in 1837 and quickly asserts herself – even though she is just 18-years-old.

Masterpiece: Victoria is written by novelist Daisy Goodwin who read through 62 million words of Victoria’s diaries, which vividly portray her astonishing transformation from rebellious teenager to Queen. Can you imagine being queen as a teenager? That is drama! Do you love the adorable meerkats on this month’s cover? Can you tell which animal is actually a “spy bot?” (It’s the one on the right.) I’ve been anxiously awaiting the premiere of this NATURE mini-series on secret animal behavior. It’s fascinating and funny, so set your DVR, circle the date and time on your calendar and don’t miss it! NET’s radio news is often heard on NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered, and as we have many times before, we will soon be sharing some of our local television productions with PBS stations around the country. Programs such as Watching our Water, Paleo Sleuths and Kaneko’s Monumental Risk are just a few of the reasons why our members take pride in NET’s high-quality work and support our programming. Thank you!

Could wild animals be more like humans than we think? In this new NATURE miniseries, animatronic “spy” cameras disguised as animals secretly record behavior in the wild – revealing animal emotions and human similarities. You’ll be amazed to see the animal capacity to love, grieve, deceive, cooperate and invent. (Five-part series)

If you traveled the Lincoln Highway between Chicago and San Francisco in the 1920s, Omaha’s Blackstone Hotel was the premiere place to stay. Celebrities, business tycoons and society’s elite were spoiled by a fleet of limousines, ornate ballrooms, lush rooftop gardens and award-winning restaurants – including one that was first to serve the now famous Reuben sandwich. Nebraska 150 History Moments on NET are produced with support from Humanities Nebraska.

Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 10:30 p.m. CT on NET Hundreds, maybe even thousands, of Nebraska women and children are sold for sex each year. In the second of two new NET documentaries on sex trafficking in Nebraska, Sold for Sex: Survivor Stories follows three women who were victims. Sakura, now a crime victim advocate, experienced her first rape as a sixth grader. Many more followed until she thought she’d found the “perfect” guy. Eventually, he controlled everything in her life and she didn’t know where to turn, or how to get away. Another survivor thought she was getting a ride to Chicago with a good friend, but the young man with whom she traveled had other plans. “The whole time was a blur. Being drugged, beat, raped repeatedly.” And, after a decade of being trafficked that started as a six-year old girl, Rachel did what she could just to survive the abuse, control and threats.

This is horrible. I hate this. This is not me but I’m stuck. I don’t know where to go. I don’t know how to get out. - A survivor

The program examines how victims are swept into trafficking and why the crime is often not reported or punished. It also features perspective from a report that includes thoughts from more than 20 Nebraska trafficking survivors.

Marriage and childbirth – a royal balancing act.

Sundays at 8 p.m. CT on NET (Except 2/26) pbs.org/victoria

You don’t need a cable or satellite subscription to watch NET. Our three channels are available free, over-the-air with a simple antenna. There’s no shortage of options when choosing an antenna though, and you’ll need to do some research to see what might work best in your situation. Antenna quality can be judged on several factors such as the number of channels received, the distance from which it can receive signals and how well the signal is seen and heard. You can buy large antennas that can be attached to your roof, or placed in an attic, but newer models can be smaller, sleeker, and less expensive. You can find models that are table-top, ultra-thin, or even cling to a window or painted wall. Where you live (flat area, hilly terrain, among city buildings) can greatly affect the number of channels available and your signal quality. How far you live from one of NET’s network of 24 towers and transmitters can also be a determining factor.

Allegiances blur and loyalties shift as the Civil War pushes the drama beyond the hospital.

Sundays at 7 p.m. CT on NET (Except 2/26) pbs.org/mercystreet

Visit netNebraska.org/tvchannels to find the recommended antenna type and directional advice based on your address. For more information, call the NET HELP Desk at 800-698-3426, weekdays between 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. CT. NET’s Three Channels: • NET • NET World • NET Create

Kaneko’s Monumental Risk

Saturday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. CT on NET Friday, Feb. 17 at 9 p.m. CT on NET Omaha artist Jun Kaneko likes to take risks. Monumental risks. His restless imagination drives his fusion of Japanese traditional art and American modernism into massive projects. Fourteen-ton ceramic sculptures. Eighty-foot tall stained glass towers. And, perhaps his most daring adventure – three hours of projected animation on seven screens as the set design for San Francisco Opera’s multimillion dollar production of Mozart’s Magic Flute. In this new documentary, explore Kaneko’s childhood home in Japan, his creations around the world and why he believes the greatest risk is not taking any at all.

Members Recommend NET “Experiences” Longtime NET members Laurel Van Ham and Tom Pappas of Lincoln recently welcomed us into their lovely home surrounded by trees, gardens and a bee hotel. Tom is a master gardener and built a bee hotel for solitary bee species looking for individual nests.

Read more about longtime NET members Tom Pappas and Laurel Van Ham at netNebraska.org/ giftplanning

Laurel is passionate about the environment, too, and is active in the local chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby. They also share their love of public radio and television as Tom turns on NET Radio first thing in the morning and they think twice before going out on Sunday evenings. “We don’t want to miss Masterpiece,” Laurel said. Tom and Laurel are self-described “experience junkies” and make a point to be in the live audience of shows they love. There was a trip to Chicago to see the NPR news quiz show Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, and when NET brought A Prairie Home Companion with former host Garrison Keillor to Lincoln in 2013, they were there for the rehearsal and the show. “We’ve also enjoyed the receptions NET hosts for members, like the Downton Abbey previews and the special event with PBS NewsHour commentator David Brooks,” Laurel added.
