“Cultivating Life,” is a 13-part, half-hour weekly series demonstrating that reconnecting to the land is as easy as stepping out your backdoor. Hosted by Sean Conway, landscape designer and creator of a line of garden and outdoor living products, the series premieres in March 2006. In each episode of the series, Conway explains easy-to-do projects and offers inspiring ideas for integrating the outdoors into daily living. “Cultivating Life,” which is a production of Ginkgo Leaf Productions and WETA Washington, D.C., is distributed by American Public Television (APT) to public broadcasting stations nationwide.
The co-production of Florentine Films, Laura Ziskin Pictures, WETA and Ark Media, produced by Ken Burns and directed by Barak Goodman, tells the comprehensive story of cancer, from its first description in an ancient Egyptian scroll to the gleaming laboratories of modern research institutions.
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.
