LPB E-News!



Tonight at 7 on LPB, join a live TV broadcast. Big Blue Live celebrates a wildlife success story and marine animal phenomenon: humpback whales, blue whales, sea lions, elephant seals, sea otters, great white sharks and more all convene in Monterey Bay once a year. The live event will air Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 7PM, with encore broadcasts at 10PM.

Tuesday at 7, see part two of Big Blue Live. At 8, see the premiere of In Their Own Words. This episode follows Queen Elizabeth II's life, from her childhood through her long reign.

Part three of Big Blue Live airs Wednesday at 7PM. That is followed by the 2015 Student Gubernatorial Forum: Their Future, Their Questions. In this forum, college students will pose questions to the candidates.

Thursday at 8PM on Doc Martin, tensions are mounting between Martin and Louisa. It doesn't get better when Eleanor hires a local girl to help with the baby. At 10, Sainte-Marie's Commerce Minister is found dead. Camille's father has a connection to the victim. That's on Death in Paradise.

The people, places, and things of interest in our area are covered on Louisiana: The State We're In, Friday nights at 7 on LPB, followed by our news and informational lineup.

Are You Being Served? joins LPB's British comedy lineup on Saturday at 7PM. See the series from the beginning. At 10, LPB premieres Vera. In this episode of the British drama, a handsome young man and a coquettish student teacher have nothing in common - except both were murdered and their bodies were meticulously posed.
