FABULOUS MUSIC AND THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT LIGHT UP LPB THIS WEEK:

LPB

(Hugh Bonneville is back on PBS Sunday in the role of Gloucester in The Hollow Crown: Henry VI.)

LPB is going to put you in a festive mood tonight! At 7PM, the lovely ladies known as Celtic Woman perform timeless holiday favorites while adding their signature Celtic flavor. Then at 8:30, Christmastime in New Orleans features some of the Crescent City's finest chefs, actors, and Jazz musicians. A fabulous soundtrack from the NOLA players is the perfect backdrop to this Louisiana holiday special. Then at 9:30, Miss Fisher Uncovered goes behind the scenes of the popular Aussie series.

Tuesday night at 7, see the premiere of a brand new LPB documentary, Deeply Rooted: Saving Our Seeds & Stories. Nationally renowned gardener and artist John Coykendall has spent forty years saving the heirloom seeds and documenting and illustrating oral histories, foodways and farming traditions of Washington Parish.

At 8:30, see Last of the Breed, a 2007 concert starring Willie Nelson, Ray Price, Merle Haggard, and Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel.

War rages and divisions within the English court threaten the crown. Young Henry VI causes outrage by marrying Margaret of Anjou; the scene is set for civil war.

TELL US ABOUT THE INSPIRATIONAL STUDENTS WHO YOU KNOW

LPB

During this time of year, we express thankfulness. LPB and the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge are thankful for the amazing teens in our state who serve as an inspiration to everyone who knows them. That is why we honor students who go above and beyond with the Louisiana Young Heroes Awards. The awards honor students in grades 7-12 who have excelled in the classroom, served their community, and/or shown great courage in overcoming adversity in their own lives. Former Young Heroes have done countless hours of charity work, shared their talents with others, or have been successful despite great odds against them - some have even saved lives.

Nominations are now being taken for the 2017 Louisiana Young Heroes Awards. Students must be enrolled in a Louisiana school (public, private or parochial) or home-schooled, and cannot be older than 19 years of age. Some of our former Young Heroes have overcome physical handicaps, endured emotional hardships, worked tirelessly for charity, cared for family members, assisted hurricane victims, and even saved lives.

Nomination forms can be downloaded and filled out or submitted through the online form. Follow Louisiana Young Heroes on Facebook. Previous winners are not eligible. The deadline for entries is February 1, 2017.

Winners will be announced on the air and on the LPB website on February 10, 2017. Louisiana Young Heroes Day will be Monday, April 3, 2017.

For more information, call Margaret Schlaudecker at (800) 272-8161, ext. 4276 or (225) 767-4276 or email heroes@lpb.org. Also follow Louisiana Young Heroes on Facebook.

LPB BOX OFFICE IS JUST THE TICKET FOR LIVE SHOWS

LPB

We have the perfect idea for Christmas gifts because LPB has tickets to some of the best live concerts in Louisiana. If you would like to see Tommy Emmanuel or Zachary Richard (pictured) in concert in Baton Rouge, or Celtic Woman in Lake Charles or Longview, TX, go to LPB Box Office. That's also the place to get tickets to take the kids to see Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Live! in Baton Rouge. LPB has the best seats for the best shows!

LPB PASSPORT IS A GREAT STRESS RELIEVER

LPB

Escape from all the stress and worries that sometimes come with this time of year. LPB Passport is another benefit that provides Friends of LPB members extended access to their favorite public television programs - including full seasons of many current and past series - from any computer, smartphone or tablet. See Downton Abbey, Poldark, Wolf Hall, Nature, Austin City Limits, and so much more, anytime you want!

New programs are added to Passport each week! Some of the latest additions to Passport include Norman Lear: American Masters, Secrets of the Dead: After Stonehenge, Poldark Season 2 on Masterpiece (Part 6), The Durrells in Corfu on Masterpiece (Part 4), and Indian Summers Season 2 on Masterpiece (Part 8). Plus, the entire series of The Contenders – 16 for '16 will be on Passport in early December.

LPB Passport is another benefit of joining Friends of LPB at the Family Level. It also makes a great Christmas gift! Go to the LPB Passport page to see more.

LPB2 WILL SOON BE THE HOME OF 24/7 PBS KIDS PROGRAMMING

LPB

LPB and PBS will launch a new 24/7 children’s channel that will begin broadcasting in January 2017. PBS stations across the nation will broadcast PBS Kids shows 24 hours a day and offer a digital livestream, making it easy for children to watch their favorite series during primetime and other after-school hours when viewing among families is high. The new children’s programming, which will be made available on LPB’s secondary channel - LPB2 - and branded LPB/PBS KIDS, will be available over-the air and through cable providers across the state. The new LPB/PBS KIDS channel will include popular favorites, such as Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Odd Squad, Wild Kratts, Dinosaur Train, Nature Cat and Ready Jet Go!
