Escaped elephants, beaches, Little Saigon – think you know Arlington, Virginia? Once home to General Robert E. Lee, Arlington has also been home to a world-themed amusement park and Tops Drivette. It was where Orville Wright tested planes and where desegregation was first implemented in Virginia's public schools. WETA TV 26 brings you these stories and more in its new production "ARLINGTON: HEROES, HISTORY & HAMBURGERS." The documentary premieres December 2 at 8 p.m. and airs several times throughout December on TV 26.
Enjoy this step through time charting WETA's history from its founding in the 1950s as an educational television station, the addition of a public radio station, and evolution into a major national producer for PBS.
