Summer days are ahead! New times for kids’ programming

School is out for the summer — or soon will be across the Commonwealth. (Thanks to our snowy winter, a lot of schools are heading into June still holding classes.)

But we’re starting summer anyway! Beginning June 2, our daytime kids’ schedule is changing, with the goal of providing a better mix of shows all day long.

For all you curious Georges out there, here are the details. Times Eastern/Central.

Think Wednesday

KET’s Wednesdays feature nature, science and technology

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

Beginning tonight, you can tune in each week to “Think Wednesday,” a primetime line-up of nature, science and technology programs from PBS.

“Think Wednesday” kicks off with Nature’s “My Bionic Pet” at 8/7 pm on KET. Left without fins, flippers, beaks or tails from disease, accidents or human cruelty, some animals face seemingly insurmountable obstacles to survive. Prosthetic parts made possible by the latest engineering and technology can provide what disabled animals need, and scientists are finding that innovations created in the process can benefit humans, as well.

Next up is Nova’s “Inside Animal Minds: Bird Genius” at 9/8 pm on KET. Researchers are discovering that creatures other than humans have mastered skills such as making and using tools, solving complex problems, and planning for the future. Nova tests the limits of some of the planet’s brainiest birds, searching for the secrets of a problem-solving mind.

The third “Think Wednesday” program is the new three-part series Your Inner Fish, which explores how the human body became the complicated, quirky and amazing machine it is today. Based on the best-selling book by Neil Shubin, who also hosts the series, Your Inner Fish travels from Africa to the Arctic to uncover a 3.5-billion-year history of the human body. Part one airs at 10/9 pm on KET.

Downton Returns

Downton Abbey returns for a riveting season four

If you missed the season four premiere of Downton Abbey, you can watch the full episode online or catch it again on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 9/8 pm on KET2.

All who tuned in last season know that Matthew Crawley – heir to Downton Abbey, husband to Lady Mary, and brand-new father to a baby boy and successor – lies dead on a country road next to his overturned roadster. The family is still grieving the death in childbirth of Sybil, who also left a baby behind.

Season four opens six months later. Although it is the 1920s, Britain still observes mourning rituals that are almost Victorian in their solemnity.

Nonetheless, the Crawleys are beginning to snap out of it: Robert, Lord Grantham, must manage the estate without his canny son-in-law, and Cora suddenly faces a staffing crisis. Violet, the Dowager Countess played by Maggie Smith, who has seen enough tragedy, knows how to recoup quickly, while Isobel, Matthew’s mother, may never recover.

As for the girls, Edith – who was jilted at the altar last season – tempts scandal with a new beau, and Mary now finds herself the most desirable widow in Yorkshire.

The servants also pick up, buck up, and get on with it – with new arrivals, departures, rivalries, and betrayals among the downstairs staff. Life goes on at Downton Abbey.

And when the season ends, you’ll need only to keep a stiff upper lip as you wait for season five! Filming is set to begin this summer in England.
