American Experience, originally titled The American Experience, is an American television program and a PBS documentary series created by Peter McGhee.[1] The series airs documentaries about historic events or historical figures that had an impact upon the United States government or its citizens. The show is produced primarily by WGBH-TV, a television station and PBS affiliate located in Boston, Massachusetts. WGBH-TV creates non-commercial educational programs and distributes them on public television stations throughout the United States. However, other PBS affiliate stations, such as WNET in New York City, have co-produced episodes for the television series. Since the program's debut on October 4, 1988, American Experience has broadcast 335 episodes and has been a recipient of over 265 broadcast and web awards.[2][3][4] The program's thirtieth season premiered on January 9, 2018.[5]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The film episode Eric Sevareid's Not So Wild a Dream is sometimes listed in news reports as Eric Sevareid: Not So Wild a Dream or as Eric Sevareid's "Not So Wild a Dream".
  2. ^ a b The film episode Liberators: Fighting on Two Fronts in World War II is not shown among an alphabetical listing of films on the American Experience series website.[63] However, the film aired as an American Experience installment on November 11, 1992.[64][65] The claim that the racially segregated all-black 761st Tank Battalion and 183rd Engineer Combat Battalion liberated the Nazi death camps Dachau and Buchenwald in April 1945 was refuted.[66][67]
