Abraham Lincoln has fascinated historians and history lovers, myself included, for years. And despite the excavations of thousands of scholars over the past century, source material continues to turn up: At least 50 new titles about Lincoln are due out by early 2010. As our nation marks the bicentennial of Lincoln’s birth this month, American Experience is taking a new look at the remarkable saga of the 16th president with The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln (see page 11). “Lincoln came to power at an exceptionally turbulent time in US history, not unlike today,” American Experience executive producer Mark Samels says. “As he began his second White House term, Americans were spiritually and physically exhausted from fearful uncertainty, economic collapse, and seemingly unending war.” The Lincoln film, Samels continues, “is the story of a president who issued a call for the nation to bind its wounds and move forward.” Lincoln is the latest documentary from American Experience, WGBH’s much-honored series that has filled a void for well-crafted, scholarly history for 20 years, on air and online, including its popular collection of presidential portraits (FDR to George H.W. Bush). Even as American Experience rolls out its winter roster, the series’ creative team is putting the finishing touches on a powerful, multimedia initiative anchored by a five-part documentary that begins this April. We Shall Remain, the most extensive television project on Native American history ever produced, will take you on an innovative exploration of Native history as seen through Native eyes. It’s your support, now more critical than ever, that enables WGBH to produce original films like these—that help us connect our past with our present and celebrate our diverse nation.

Starting February 17, 2009, federal law requires that all TV stations broadcast only a digital signal. If you use an antenna or rabbit ears to tune in 2 or 44, you’ll need a converter box or a new TV to continue to receive television over the air. To offset the cost of converter boxes, the government is offering consumers two $40 coupons per household. Don’t wait!

Privacy vs. Security Based on the latest bestseller by journalist James Bamford, this new WGBH-produced film is a gripping investigation of the National Security Agency (NSA), from its tragic failures leading up to the 9/11 attacks to its secret listening rooms currently installed in the nation’s telecom facilities. For the first time on television, Nova exposes the hidden world of high-tech, 21stcentury eavesdropping carried out by the world’s largest intelligence agency—three times the size of the CIA and far more secretive.

All in the Family In 2004, journalist Dave Iverson received the same news that had been delivered to his father and older brother years earlier: He had Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative neurological disorder that affects about one million Americans. In this Frontline and ITVS joint production, Iverson explores the scientific, ethical and political debate that surrounds Parkinson’s, a disease at the center of the ongoing controversy over embryonic stem cell research. During this personal journey, he talks to scientists on the cutting edge of new cures and therapies as well as fellow Parkinson’s sufferers, actor Michael J. Fox and writer Michael Kinsley.

Lincoln’s Bicentennial On March 4, 1865, at the US Capitol, a crowd of 50,000 listened as President Lincoln delivered his famous second inaugural address, urging charity and forgiveness to a nation in the final throes of war. Just two months later, a train—nine cars long and draped in black bunting—pulled slowly out of a station in Washington, DC. Dignitaries and government officials crowded the first eight cars. In the ninth rode the body of Abraham Lincoln—America’s first assassinated president. This new WGBH-produced American Experience film recounts a great American drama: two tumultuous months when the joy of peace was shattered by the heartache of Lincoln’s assassination.
