WGBH is kicking off 2013 with two very different kinds of dramas, each riveting in its own way. The first needs almost no introduction. Downton Abbey Season 3 on the WGBH-produced Masterpiece finally is here (page 10), and it was worth the wait. Seasons 1 and 2 took home nine Primetime Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe for Best Miniseries. The Hollywood Reporter has called the series “one of the great melodramas of the modern television age.” Now the Great War is over and the long-awaited engagement of Lady Mary and Matthew is on, but the landscape is hardly tranquil. Set against a backdrop of wrenching social changes where nothing is assured, “Downton Abbey will seduce you with its sumptuously spread-out plot,” promises WGBH’s Rebecca Eaton, Masterpiece executive producer. Mark your calendar for Sunday, January 6 at 9pm on WGBH 2, for the start of more of the captivating drama you and millions of viewers count on every week. Two nights later, on Tuesday, January 8 at 9pm on WGBH 2 (page 12), we’re bringing you drama of another sort. On the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, WGBH’s award-winning history series American Experience presents The Abolitionists, a three-part docudrama that explores how anti-slavery allies—black and white, male and female, Southern and Northern—turned a fringe movement into a force that changed the world. “This was an incredibly difficult story to tell,” says WGBH’s Sharon Grimberg, an executive producer for the documentary and senior producer for American Experience. “There’s a huge amount of literature about the abolitionists, but there is no single book that tells the story of the movement. A lot of people think that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves— and indeed he issued the Emancipation Proclamation. But in many ways, the abolitionists of this country— the men and women who struggled and fought and tried for 30 years to convince slave owners to abolish slavery—they’re the people who really made it happen. And most Americans don’t know that story at all.” The drama doesn’t end with the series. You can explore the abolitionist movement in America through American Experience’s interactive map that includes walking tours of key abolitionist strongholds here in Boston, as well as in Cincinnati, Philadelphia and Charleston. Uncover history, and add your own insights. It’s available as an iPhone app and an interactive website at pbs.org/americanexperience. Gripping drama. Groundbreaking history. It all happens because of your generous annual support. Thank you for helping us start the New Year strong.

WGBH is building a library of mobile apps for your iPhone or iPad, offering you and your family fresh, interactive content. We have apps for all ages, and every month we will choose one (or more) to highlight.

Martha Speaks to Kids

Education is at the heart of WGBH’s mission, and apps have proven to be an effective learning tool for children. Take the Martha Speaks Dog Party iPhone app inspired by WGBH’s curriculum-based television series Martha Speaks. Independent studies show that playing the app gives kids a 31 percent vocabulary boost. Building on the success of Dog Party, WGBH this fall launched two new Martha apps: Martha Speaks Story Maker for iPhones, and Martha Speaks Word Spinner for iPads. With Story Maker, kids can create eight different stories with Martha, who then reads their stories aloud. Word Spinner gets the whole family involved, giving up to four players the chance to compete in six fun and interactive mini-games. Along the way, kids develop their storytelling and oral vocabulary skills. Apps like Dog Party can get kids talking about the words they are learning, says Bill Shribman, senior executive producer for WGBH’s Children’s Media. “When kids say words out loud something magical happens,” Shribman says. “They begin to understand the meaning of the words they hear. It’s amazing to see learning in action.” The Martha Speaks Dog Party, Story Maker and Word Spinner apps are available on iTunes. 8 Full schedules: wgbh.org | Get more from the free digital edition of Explore! at wgbh.org/Explore

Just in time for the new year, Downton Abbey is returning on WGBH’s Masterpiece, with seven new episodes that take you back inside the majestic and melodramatic English country estate. Last season closed with the reluctant heir to Downton, Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), recovered from his war wounds and ready to tie the knot with the eldest of Lord and Lady Grantham’s daughters, Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery). Meanwhile, Mary’s youngest sister, Sybil (Jessica BrownFindlay), had eloped to Ireland with the political-minded chauffeur, Branson (Allen Leech), and was expecting a child. A tantalizing glimpse ahead: 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, Lord Grantham 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. Could it be that even the war-weary Crawleys must fight a new battle to safeguard their beloved Downton? Masterpiece Classic/Downton Abbey Season 3 Sun, 1/6, 1/13, 1/20 & 1/27 at 9pm on WGBH 2 Premiere on 1/6 is two hours; episodes 2–4 are one hour each. The season concludes with three episodes in February.

Crossing the Pond

When producers sought an actress to play the formidable American mother of Downton Abbey’s New York-bred Countess of Grantham (Elizabeth McGovern), they had to look no further than the legendary Shirley MacLaine. With six Academy Award nominations, more than 50 feature films and a current one-woman show to her credit, the Hollywood veteran was the perfect fit for the part. Her character, Martha Levinson, arrives just before the nuptials of Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley, and in no time raises the hackles of her British counterpart, the indomitable Dowager Countess of Grantham (Dame Maggie Smith). Step back, and let the parrying begin! 10 Full schedules: wgbh.org | Get more from the free digital edition of Explore! at wgbh.org/Explore

Signed Red Sox Ball = $?

WGBH’s Antiques Roadshow starts its 17th season in Corpus Christi, Texas, with a bang: a lost Diego Rivera painting, created when the artist was only 18 years old, is valued at $800,000–$1,000,000. That’s just one of the highlights of the season’s 21 new episodes from seven cities across the nation, including Boston. In the first of three Boston shows (premiering January 28), host Mark Walberg and appraiser Wes Cowan look at a famous and controversial Paul Revere print. Other show appraisers examine a Norman Rockwell collection from a guest who modeled for the artist as a child, an Aldro Hibbard oil painting brought in by Boston Mayor Tom Menino, and a Red Sox World Series team-signed ball. And for the first time ever, you can get a top-to-bottom look at how the show comes together in WGBH’s Behind the Scenes special. Arts reporter Jared Bowen tracks down host Mark Walberg on location at the Old Statehouse, gets insider tips from the all-important appraisers, and follows Mayor Menino, who arrives at the Roadshow with high hopes for some freshly discovered paintings.

A More Perfect Union

Radicals. Agitators. Troublemakers. Liberators. Called by many names, the abolitionists tore the nation apart in order to make a more perfect union. Men and women, black and white, Northerners and Southerners, poor and wealthy, these passionate anti-slavery activists fought body and soul in the most important civil rights crusade in American history. What began as a pacifist movement fueled by persuasion and prayer became a fiery and furious struggle that forever changed the nation. In The Abolitionists, WGBH’s American Experience brings to life the intertwined stories of Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Angelina Grimké, Harriet Beecher Stowe and John Brown. The film takes place during some of the most violent and contentious decades in American history, amid religious passions that set souls on fire, and bitter debates over the meaning of the Constitution and the nature of race. The documentary reveals how the movement shaped history by exposing the fatal flaw of a republic founded on liberty for some and bondage for others, setting the nation on a collision course. In the face of personal risks— beatings, imprisonment, even death—abolitionists held fast to their cause, laying the civil rights groundwork for the future and raising weighty constitutional and moral questions that are with us still.

Murder in Midsomer

The rural countryside of a fictional county in England provides the backdrop for this crime series based on the novels of Caroline Graham. A lush visual style, quirky characters and ubiquitous red herrings recall classic public television British mysteries of the past. At the center of the Midsomer Murders investigations is detective chief inspector Tom Barnaby, played by actor John Nettles (Bergerac). In the first two shows, someone decides to turn Midsomer Deverell’s memorial garden into a tea shop, a move that proves to be a fatal mistake for more than one person. DCI Barnaby’s criminal investigation uncovers a tumultuous trail of ruined dreams, scandalous love affairs and vicious blackmail—all leading straight to the killer.

Introducing DCI Banks

Stephen Tompkinson and Andrea Lowe star as the tenacious and stubborn chief inspector Alan Banks and the feisty and headstrong detective sergeant Annie Cabbot in DCI Banks, a series of thrilling crime stories based on crime writer Peter Robinson’s novels. What makes Banks different from other investigators? “He’s very much an ‘everyman’ type of character, which is why so many readers can identify with him,” Robinson writes in The Telegraph. “He’s no super sleuth or hard man, simply a flawed, passionate, occasionally naive and sometimes deeply insightful man.” Follow DCI Banks and his team this month in two programs as they discover a serial killer and investigate an houseboat fire that turns out to be more than just a case of arson.

Finding Cultural Identity Eliaichi Kimaro is a mixed-race, first-generation American with a Tanzanian father and Korean mother. When her retired father moved back to Tanzania, Kimaro decided to document his path back to his family and Chagga culture. In the process, she struggled with her own relationship to Tanzania, and uncovered a cycle of violence that resonates with her work and life in the US. A part of the Afropop series, A Lot Like You raises questions about the cultures we inherit and the cultures we choose to pass down, and reveals how simply bearing witness to another’s truth-telling can break silences that have lasted lifetimes.

Illustrated with remastered sequences that the BBC’s Attenborough spent 60 years capturing, the program contains new interviews in which Attenborough revisits the locations featured in his landmark series, and shares personal anecdotes of time spent surveying life on Earth.

What Happened to Little Lindy?

In the aftermath of his 1927 solo transatlantic flight, Charles Lindbergh became the most famous human being on Earth. When he and his wife, Anne, had a son, Charlie, the press dubbed him Little Lindy. On March 1, 1932, kidnappers snatched Little Lindy from the family home near Hopewell, New Jersey. Negotiations stretched out for weeks, but Charlie never returned. His body was discovered not five miles from Hopewell. Now, WGBH’s Nova is reopening one of the most confounding crime mysteries of all time as a team of expert investigators employs state-of-the-art forensic and behavioral science techniques in an effort to determine what really happened to Lindbergh’s baby— and why.

Classical New England Let Freedom Sing By Benjamin K. Roe Managing Director of Classical Services

“Any good crusade requires singing,” reformers like to say, and in the 19th century, no cause was more righteous than the decades-long crusade to abolish slavery. This month, as American Experience presents the three-part, WGBH-produced special The Abolitionists (see page 12), Classical New England presents Let Freedom Sing: The Music of the Abolitionists. Let Freedom Sing chronicles the idealistic artists, uncompromising personalities and powerful music of the era, and looks at how these forces combined to turn abolitionism from a scorned fringe movement into a nation-changing force. An original WGBH-Classical New England production hosted by NPR’s Noah Adams, Let Freedom Sing will profile such powerful figures as Henry Russell, the barnstorming Anglo-Jewish pianist and singer dubbed the master of “chutzpah and huzzah”; the Milford, New Hampshire-based Hutchinson Family Singers, remembered as America’s first protest singers; and abolitionist leader and newspaper publisher William Lloyd Garrison, whose “Song of the Abolitionist” (set to the tune of “Auld Lang Syne”) literally set the tone for the entire movement. Garrison believed strongly in setting stanzas to familiar melodies—for poetry, he held, was “naturally and instinctively on the side of liberty.” And we’ll explain how “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” evolved from a patriotic ditty penned in a halfhour by Andover Theological Seminary student Samuel Francis Smith to a stirring anthem of equality famously sung by Marian Anderson in 1939 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial…and reprised by Aretha Franklin on the West Lawn of the US Capitol for the inauguration of President Barack Obama in 2009. Join us this month for Let Freedom Sing, the story of these remarkable 19th-century artists who, as one abolitionist song writer penned, exhibited “fearless advocacy, signal ability, and wonderful success on behalf of their Brothers and Sisters in Bonds.” Let Freedom Sing: The Music of the Abolitionists Sat, 1/12 at 6pm; Sun, 1/13 at 12 noon Special segments of the program will air Fri, 1/11, 1/18 & 1/25 at 7:30am

of Thee”


Ten Years of Harmony on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day By Benjamin K. Roe Managing Director of Classical Services

“Life’s piano can only produce melodies of brotherhood (and sisterhood) when it is recognized that the black keys are as basic, necessary and beautiful as the white keys.” —Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The abolitionist songs of the 1860s were the direct forerunners of the protest anthems of the 1960s, particularly those associated with the civil rights movement, as exemplified by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. But music in King’s life went far beyond “We Shall Overcome.” The earliest evidence can be found in his boyhood home in Atlanta, steps away from the celebrated Ebenezer Baptist Church, pastored by his father, Daddy King. King may have been the son of a preacher, but he also was the son of a choir director. When you walk in the King house, the first room you enter is an intimate front parlor, dominated by a battered old upright piano. Here is where King’s mother would lead the Ebenezer choir through weekly rehearsals, where his father first noted four-year-old Martin’s “fine, clear singing voice,” and where Martin struggled through piano lessons. Later, King would take his own place in the Ebenezer choir, join the prestigious Glee Club of Morehouse College, and marry a young New England Conservatory soprano named Coretta Scott. Forever after, it was the distinctly musical style of speaking that made Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. one

of this century’s greatest and most persuasive orators. It’s no accident that his speeches and writings are filled with references to music. It’s because there is a vital musical core to King’s life and message that the Boston Children’s Chorus and its collection of “fine, clear singing voices” began what is now a 10-year tradition of honoring what King referred to as the “beloved community,” on the national holiday celebrating his birth on January 21. “Arguably, there is no better way to celebrate the Martin Luther King holiday than with diverse youth singing at levels of excellence,” says BCC artistic director Anthony Trecek-King. “This concert is the embodiment of Dr. King’s dream: that young people of all colors can transcend racial barriers to share their gifts and talents.” In recent years, organizers have stressed that the King holiday (still new enough to be spared car sales and mattress ads) should be a “day on, not a day off,” devoted to the spirit of civic action and community volunteerism for which King was known. In that spirit, Trecek-King and the choir will be pulling double duty, first joining Classical New England host Laura Carlo in WGBH’s Fraser Performance Studio at 9am on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day for a special preview of the choir’s 10th annual tribute concert in advance of the choir’s performance at 12noon in New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall. In his Letter from the Birmingham Jail written almost 50 years ago, King expressed his belief that, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.” I can’t think of a better way of celebrating that mutuality than hearing voices joined together in song, performing music that inspired him and that he, in turn, inspired.

WCAI, Cape and Islands NPR Station Bird News Soars to Saturday By Mindy Todd WCAI Managing Director for Editorial and Host

There are 51.3 million birders in the US and that number continues to grow, according to the US Fish & Wildlife Service. With one in five Americans identifying themselves as birders, it’s no wonder that ornithologist Vernon Laux’s Bird News segment on my show The Point is one of WCAI’s most popular programs. Beginning in February, we’re launching a weekend pilot program with Vern and myself to further explore the world of birds. The way these creatures live is extraordinary, as is their appeal to the human psyche. They strike a chord with every age group, from babies to centenarians. Listen in for a look into birding: it may open up a whole new world for you! Vern has been enthralled with birds since childhood. “Imagine for a moment being able to fly. Then imagine flying to the ends of the Earth twice annually—yes, I am jealous of birds and their abilities,” he says. “Summer in the Arctic, winter in the Tropics, I want in.” Producer Amy Vince is on the bird beat as well. ”Bird News on The Point with Mindy and Vern has been a longtime listener favorite,” she says. “We’re

excited to expand the show to an hour and incorporate some new elements —including our Bird Brain Quiz.” “Are you that Bird Guy?” is a familiar question to Vern, who is continually amazed and delighted at the diversity of listeners who tune in Bird News. And listeners are just as delighted at being able to ask questions about bird activities they’ve witnessed, or birds they’ve seen but can’t identify. “From learning about diverse families, migration and breeding behavior to just trying to identify the ones at your feeders—birds are an endless source of fascination and enjoyment,” Vern says. “I’m excited to be a part of what promises Superstorm Sandy brought with it the Brown Pelican, a species normally seen in to be an entertaining and educational the southern US. program for the whole family.”
