On the radio known as NPR. They share some programming with the BBC I think. That’s how we got to watch Downton Abbey in the States... I think. :)

I learned today during a quiz show on NPR, that Orcas, Killer Whales are not whales, but dolphins! And the confusion, might come from them being called Killers of Whales.

I heard an interview yesterday with a program director at PBS and they look for shows being produced in England that they want to invest in and then they get broadcast rights. I’m not sure how much they are involved in the story development process, or how responsible they are for the show being created up front. We have enjoyed Masterpiece Theater, including Downton Abbey, Grantchester, and Indian Summers.
