After Newtown

Program explores all sides of tragic school shooting and its aftermath

Friday, Dec. 21, 2012

Watch Preview: After Newtown on PBS. See more from After Newtown.

One week after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, PBS continues its participation in the national conversation begun in Friday’s PBS Newshour coverage by bringing together its news and public affairs teams in a joint effort to analyze and illuminate the issues. After Newtown airs Friday, Dec. 21 at 9/8 pm on KET.

After Newtown will address access to guns and the politics of gun laws, mental illness in young adults, the science of detecting violent impulses, and how communities react to unspeakable tragedy and begin to heal. The question of how to respond to this tragedy faces all of us: government at all levels, educators and mental health professionals, the media and individual Americans.

The broadcast will be anchored by Gwen Ifill and will include a number of key studio interviews as well as a conversation with regular contributors to Washington Week.

Tracks of Imagination

A wonderful combination of art and architecture, botany and horticulture

Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012

Tonight on Kentucky Muse, meet the creative team at the Alexandria, Ky., based studio Applied Imagination, whose holiday and seasonal train displays meld botanical design and architecture, delighting crowds at botanical gardens across the United States. The programs airs at 9/8 pm on KET and Monday, Dec. 24 at 9/8 pm on KET2.

Founded by Paul Busse, Applied Imagination takes natural botanical materials and creates unique works of art. Each year, visitors clamor to visit the New York Botanical Gardens, where miniature trains weave among 149 structures depicting Big Apple landmarks designed and built by the firm, as well as to an equally popular annual event at the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati.

This is just one of the many holiday programs we’ve planned this December — programs from both Kentucky and around the world! Enjoy them all (click here for a list) and happy holidays from KET.
