Got my own tv as a child just a few years before NOVA debuted on PBS. Had my own antenna to help pull in the UHF signal. Hopefully some of you know what I'm talking about! It had colored snow, but I watch and absorbed as much as I could. Tremendous show. Many of the programs in this list were not originally produced for PBS, but were acquired from other sources such as the BBC equivalent, Horizon.
