LPB

Tonight on PBS and LPB, the Democratic National Convention gets underway in Philadelphia.

If you would like to watch the live stream of the DNC without any commentary, go to the PBS NewsHour website. At 10PM, see part two of Black Work. With the chief suspect in custody, it seems that the case has been closed, but Jo remains skeptical.

Tuesday night at 7, the Democratic National Convention continues. At 10PM, see part one of Death Comes to Pemberly on Masterpiece. Six years after the end of Pride & Prejudice, Elizabeth and Darcy plan a ball with fatal consequences.

More DNC Wednesday night starting at 7PM. At 10 on part two of Death Comes to Pemberly, a suspect goes on trial for his life, while Elizabeth pursues the truth behind a mysterious death.

The Convention wraps up Thursday night. At 10PM on Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, a death in a bookstore plunges Phryne into the diverse worlds of Jewish politics, alchemy, and poison.

Friday night at 7, catch up on the news from around our state with Charlie Whinham on Louisiana: The State We're In. At 10PM see part one of American Experience's profile of Walt Disney. The life and legacy of the iconic filmmaker are explored.

Saturday at 5:30PM and Sunday at 4PM on Art Rocks!, Baton Rouge painter David Horton presents stories in his colorful canvases, filled with symbolic icons and fantastic creatures. Ken Burns discusses his perspective as a historical documentarian, and we learn about the life of playwright August Wilson. Historic re-enactors bring an appreciation of history and theatre to their commemorative events, making them this week’s Louisiana Treasure. Starting at 7PM, see some of the best comedies in the world on LPB. At 9PM, the team is tested when a millionaire philanthropist is murdered on his boat on Death in Paradise.

On part 6 of Dancing on the Edge, Sunday at 7PM, Stanley, Sarah, and Pamela try to help Louis evade the law. At 8PM see Inspector Lewis, Season 7: Beyond Good & Evil on Masterpiece. Thirteen years after Detective Lewis' first successful arrest, the case is re-opened for appeal. Then on part 7 of The Tunnel, Karl and Laura's relationship takes another turn.
