In early February, we're proud to premiere our newest MPTV documentary special, MEMORIALIZING KOSCIUSZKO, about one community's efforts to restore an iconic statue on Milwaukee's south side. We will have a free preview of the documentary on January 28 at 6:00 pm at the Polish Center of Wisconsin in Franklin.
Our wildly popular Thursday night series AROUND THE CORNER WITH JOHN McGIVERN has a pre-screening of every episode in the featured community. The new programs premiering in February visit Milwaukee's Mitchell Street (screening at St. Anthony Church), Prairie du Chien (City Hall), Cudahy (Joe's K Ranch), and Wausau (screening location TBA). John and the rest of the production crew are at most of the screenings, and there are usually refreshments, AROUND THE CORNER DVDs and swag for sale, and free parking!
4th STREET FORUM -- Wisconsin's only weekly televised town hall meeting -- gives you the rare opportunity to be in an interactive studio audience for a broadcast. The program is taped Thursdays at noon at historic Turner Hall, 1034 N. 4th Street, Milwaukee, and as an audience member, you may have the opportunity to ask the panel a question. Lunch is available for purchase.
For 22 years, fans of the MPTV production OUTDOOR WISCONSIN have not only looked forward to the series itself but to the annual OUTDOOR WISCONSIN Banquet. It includes a great meal, raffles, auctions, and special surprises. It is scheduled for February 26 at the. Country Springs Hotel in Pewaukee.
Later this year, there will be studio audience opportunities for our new broadcast series NEXT AVENUE COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS, and a special local pre-screening of the PBS special, PETER PAN BY MILWAUKEE BALLET, produced by MPTV.
Finally, if you'd like to get a taste of what it would be like to live in DOWNTON ABBEY, you might like to join us April 18-25 on MPTV's trip to London and the English countryside, which includes a visit to Highclere Castle, the actual setting for DOWNTON!
Additional information about these special events and activities that complement the actual broadcasts of our programs can be found here in FINE TUNING or online at mptv.org. Or you can call the station at 414-271-1036.
We appreciate your support for MPTV -- and we enjoy your company when you can join us at these special MPTV community activities!
