« back to classes page
Less than four months after men first landed on the moon, another “giant leap” took place when Sesame Street debuted on PBS in November, 1969.  It revolutionized “educational television,” but, like the moon landing, it didn’t happen overnight.  As game-changing as it was, Sesame Street was only one step in a series of creative and political events that began decades earlier and that have continued to this day. For a look back at the origins and growth of public broadcasting, we are honored to have two public broadcasting executives who were on hand at the national and local levels for most of the past 50 years.  They will share the history as well as some personal perspectives on what has become the most trusted media institution in America.
