At 2 p.m., discover, if you haven’t already, the heart-warming drama series Lark Rise to Candleford. An adaptation of Flora Thompson’s magical memoir of her Oxfordshire childhood, the series chronicles the daily lives of those living in the English Countryside. Then at 3 p.m., WXXI-TV gives you a second chance to see episodes from season three of the Emmy-award winning episodes from series Downton Abbey! Enjoy the first five episodes back to back.

The Powerbroker: Whitney Young’s Fight for Civil Rights

Monday, February 25 at 7 p.m. at the Little Theatre Screening and panel discussion are free and open to the public. Seats are first come, first served.

Whitney M. Young, Jr. was one of the most celebrated — and controversial — leaders of the civil rights era. The Powerbroker: Whitney Young’s Fight for Civil Rights follows his journey from segregated Kentucky to head of the National Urban League. Unique among black leaders, he took the fight directly to the powerful white elite, gaining allies in business and government, including three presidents. Young had the difficult tasks of calming the fears of white allies, relieving the doubts of fellow civil rights leaders, and responding to attacks from the militant Black Power movement. The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Nancy Sung Shelton, Sr. Program Associate at Coordinated Care Services, Inc.; William Clark, President & CEO at Urban League of Rochester; and Dr. Leonard Brock, Associate Vice President of Youth Development at The Community Place. The Powerbroker also airs on WXXI-TV/HD on Monday, February 18 at 10 p.m. This film is part of WXXI’s African American Educational Awareness Film Series, now in its 5th year. The series is made possible with support from our sponsors: Pothos Productions, Freedom Trail Commission, WHTK-1280AM What’s Goin’ on with Brown & Allen, The Community Place of Greater Rochester and Threshold CAPP. This film is part of Community Cinema, presented by ITVS, funded by Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American people with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Dear Friends,

Norm Silverstein

To all our Downton Abbey fans – I hope you are enjoying season three! PBS reports that nearly 8 million viewers tuned in for the premiere on January 6, proving that the series continues to enthrall audiences across the country. It is recognized as one of the best dramas on television today. If you missed any of the episodes in January, you’ll be able to catch them all on February 3 when we continue our tradition of bringing you “Super Drama Sunday.” An alternative to the Super Bowl, WXXI-TV hosts a marathon of popular programs and this year it will include Downton Abbey (you’ll find the complete marathon schedule on the cover of this magazine). In February we honor Black History Month with special programs on WXXI-TV and radio, as well as at the Little Theatre. You’ll find program highlights on the opposite page of this letter, including details about the free screening of The Powerbroker: Whitney Young’s Fight for Civil Rights at The Little on Monday, February 25 at 7 p.m. For a full list of programs, visit WXXI.org/bh. At WXXI, we’ve kicked off the New Year with new program initiatives and a busy schedule, especially for our news department and our music hosts. Perhaps you caught Hélène Biandudi’s live reports from South Sudan about Rochester’s involvement in a new school. Our Innovation Trail’s Health Care Innovation series aired on AM 1370 and 88.5 FM. Maybe you heard The Ying Quartet’s live performance on Classical 91.5’s Backstage Pass, listened to Brenda Tremblay’s Healthy Musicians podcasts online, or enjoyed Kate Lee’s performance on WRUR’s Open Tunings with Scott Regan. As we enter into our Spring Membership campaign, February 3 - 8, we hope you’ll remember that the fine reporting, intriguing interviews, and beautiful music you enjoy is made possible by your support. Thank you for being part of the WXXI family!

Norm Silverstein, WXXI President norms@wxxi.org


NEWS&EVENTS

WXXI Remembers Robert McKnight It is with great sadness we share that WXXI Honorary Trustee Robert W. McKnight passed away in December at the age of 89. He was a long-time supporter of WXXI, whose commitments helped the station fulfill its mission of public service. Mr. McKnight was a good friend to many at the station. In 2010 he was named WXXI’s Associate of the Year, an award that recognizes those individuals who have made significant contributions in support of WXXI, its broadcasts, and operations. A member of WXXI since 1994, Mr. McKnight believed in the station’s mission and was an avid fan of 1370 Connection and a frequent caller to the show. Always keeping tabs on how we were doing, Mr. McKnight was very active in WXXI’s membership drives – offering numerous member challenges. We are especially grateful that Mr. McKnight remembered WXXI in his estate, benefitting WXXI and our community for years to come.

Raised in Albion, New York, Mr. McKnight lived in Washington, DC, New York City, and Chicago before making his home in Rochester. After serving in WWII, he graduated from Clarkson College of Technology in Potsdam, NY with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. From there he became a magazine editing student at the Syracuse University Graduate School of Journalism. A retired writer and editor for Railway Signaling & Communications and Railway Age magazines, Mr. McKnight wrote a book on the history of railroad signals, entitled You Can’t Beat the Train. The book is currently being published by the Barriger National Railroad Library at the University of Missouri, St. Louis.

Rochester’s own Dave Marshall and Chris Christopher (pictured left), the multiple Emmy Award-winning filmmaking team, reveals the story of what really happened during the 1971 Attica prison riot in Criminal Injustice: Death and Politics at Attica.

Women Who Make America

Tuesday, February 26 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD

Makers shares the stories of exceptional women whose pioneering contributions continue to shape the world in which we live. Narrated by three-time Academy Awardwinning actress Meryl Streep, Makers takes its cue from the Women’s Movement’s motto, “the personal is political,” delving into the personal lives of its subjects. The film is built from first person, intimate accounts of women who experienced this time of change. Rochester’s own Ursula Burns, CEO of Xerox and the first African-American woman to run a Fortune 500 company, is one of the many women featured. Others include: movement leaders such as author and feminist activist Gloria Steinem and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton; opponents like conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly; celebrities including media leader Oprah Winfrey and journalist Katie Couric; political figures including former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; and many “ordinary” women who confronted dramatic social upheaval in their own lives. WXXI will also host a free preview screening of this film at the Little Theatre on Monday, February 11 at 7 p.m., followed by a panel discussion. WXXI also invites attendees to share and record stories of women who have influenced their lives in our listening booth on site at the Little.

Sara’s Weeknight Meals Saturdays at 1 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD Begins February 16

Renowned chef, cookbook author and television personality Sara Moulton reveals kitchen tips, short cuts, and strategies while preparing delicious, family-friendly dishes in Sara’s Weeknight Meals.  Sara visits markets, farms, gardens shops, butchers and fisheries to learn about the source of her ingredients. She’s also visited by guest chefs from around the globe — Top Chef finalist Dale Talde, Brazilian chef Leticia Moreinos Schwartz, and James Beard-winning chef Marc Vetri — as they reveal their secret food sources before preparing a meal in Sara’s home kitchen.

TVHIGHLIGHTS

Monday, February 11 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD

Forty years after the bloodiest one-day encounter between Americans since the Civil War, the dead remain buried along with the truth. Until now. Based on interviews with eyewitnesses who just now are telling their stories, as well as access to newly discovered documents, the film sheds new light on exactly what happened at Attica between September 9-13, 1971. Criminal Injustice raises compelling new questions about the 39 deaths at Attica, White House involvement, and the corrupting influence of Nelson Rockefeller’s political aspirations before, during, and long after the deadly retaking of the prison. Former hostage Michael Smith said, “the cover up started as soon as the shooting stopped.” This film reveals that the truth actually may have been concealed long before that.

Monday, Feb. 18 at 9 a.m. on WXXI-TV/HD When Buddy and his family want to follow some friends on an undersea fishing trip, the conductor unveils a new invention - the Dinosaur Train Submarine! On its maiden voyage, Otto Ophthalmosaurus guides the sub deep into an enormous marine reptile that’s something between a dolphin and a whale, and a huge fast swimming lizard with flippers. Finally, the family follows baby Archelon turtles on their journey across the ocean where they will grow up to be giant-sized sea turtles!

The Path to Violence 

Wednesday, February 20 at 10 p.m. Ever since the wake-up call that was Columbine, schools and law enforcement have developed multiple strategies to prevent attacks.  Remarkably, more than 120 school assaults have been thwarted in the past ten years.  But, while security hardware and physical barriers can play a deterrent role, it’s been psychologists who have come up with the most helpful tools to prevent violent attacks.  The Path to Violence tells the story of a powerfully effective Secret Service program - the Safe School Initiative - that’s helped schools detect problem behavior in advance.

2012 Year of Creative Scotland Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Classical 91.5/FM-HD 91.5-1, beginning February 13 Born from the trauma of the Second World War, Edinburgh’s unique combination of festivals is a triumph of international shared storytelling. Encompassing classical music, theater, literature, popular and folk music, science, visual art and a city-wide sharing of culture, this radio series will give listeners a first-hand experience of being in one of the world’s most creative and cosmopolitan cities during a period when over 600,000 visitors experience the “annual cultural equivalent of the Olympics” and 4,000 performances take place in hundreds of venues ranging from exquisite concert halls to site-specific fringe spaces. The four programs are built around concerts recorded at this year’s Edinburgh International Festival, one of the most important classical music festivals in the world. Among the classical music highlights are: pianists Leif Ove Andsnes and Daniil Trifonov, chamber music by Trio Zimmerman, Les Vents Français and the Calder Quartet, violinist Leonidas Kavakos with pianist Nicola Lugansky, bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni, with pianist Justus Zeyen, the European Youth Orchestra conducted by Gianadrea Noseda, and the Iraqi Youth Orchestra, led by Paul MacAlindin.

This two part series celebrates the centenary year (2012) of the great conductor and educator Erich Leinsdorf, who was the Principal Conductor of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra from 1947 to 1955. Distinguished artists and others who worked with him share stories of his legacy as a perfectionist conductor of operas, orchestral music, and concertos, a passionate educator of performing musicians, and a devoted advocate of an enormously wide-ranging arena of composers. Gunther Schuller, Phyllis Curtin, Marilyn Horne, Joseph Silverstein, Vic Firth, John Oliver, Henry Fogel, Dan Gustin, Anthony Fogg, Deborah Borda, Costa Pilavachi, and Michael Skinner recall Maestro Leinsdorf’s powerful impact at the Metropolitan Opera, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Tanglewood Music Centre, and the New York Philharmonic. Maestro Leinsdorf himself is heard speaking about the interpretation and also the teaching of some repertoire for which he became especially celebrated and revered.

Comfort

Zone

A Greentopia and Little presentation

On the surface Comfort Zone is a film about how climate change will affect one place – Rochester, New York. But, the film is much bigger than “Inconvenient Truth comes to Rochester”. It brings the global issue of climate change to a local and personal level. It’s the story of what happens when we try to translate this global problem to our individual lives. What is at stake? What can I do about it? What if dealing with this problem asks things of me that I’m not yet ready to give? The climate is already changing. Now what about us? Comfort Zone directors Kate Kressmann-Kehoe, Dean Donnelly, and Dave Danesh will participate in a post screening Q&A. Wednesday, February 13 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 A portion of the ticket sales will support Greentopia, a festival of ideas that empowers everybody to create positive change on the planet we call home.

The Lost World a 1925 silent adventure film, is an adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s 1912 novel of the same name. The story begins with reporter Edward Malone (Lloyd Hughes), who wants to marry Gladys Hungerford (Alma Bennett). Gladys, however, only wants to marry a man of great deeds. So Malone, having asked his editor for an adventuresome assignment, is given the task of interviewing Professor Challenger (Wallace Beery), who is planning an expedition to a “lost world.” Malone accompanies Challenger and his men to South America where, on a great plateau, they find a prehistoric world occupied by dinosaurs and ape-like men. Thursday, February 7 at 7 p.m.

Phantom of the Opera a 1925 silent horror film, starring Lon Chaney as Erik, a much-feared fiend who haunts the Paris Opera House. Lurking around the damp, dank passages deep in the cellars of the theater, he secretly coaches understudy Christine Daae (Mary Philbin) to be an opera star. Through a startling sequence of terrors, including sending a giant chandelier crashing down on the opera patrons, the Phantom forces the lead soprano to withdraw from the opera, permitting Christine to step in. Saturday, February 9 at 3 p.m.


Spotlight on a WXXI Business Partner

Lifespan, a 501c(3) non-profit organization founded in 1971, provides more than 30 services that help older adults take on both the challenges and opportunities of longer life. According to Mary Rose McBride, Vice President, Marketing Communications, “Lifespan is known for providing expert, non-biased information about matters such as financing long-term care, eldercare situations, and Medicare and health insurance options. We specialize in helping in elder abuse and geriatric addiction situations. In addition, our two older adult centers are hubs of activities providing needed socialization opportunities.” Lifespan partnered with WXXI to support a campaign designed to recruit baby boomers as mentors for students of the City School District. McBride explained, “It was a natural fit and potential volunteers reported hearing about the opportunity on WXXI. We partnered with WXXI again to inform family caregivers about a special series of educational workshops. We believe a major benefit of our partnership is being aligned with a respected community asset like WXXI, along with an opportunity to extend our communications vehicle and message.”

“Lifespan is known for providing expert and non-biased information about matters such as financing long-term care, eldercare situations, and Medicare and health insurance options.”

On a personal note, McBride is a fan of PBS MASTERPIECE CLASSIC Downton Abbey!
