TPT's Picks - Week of August 11, 2019

August 11, 2019

This week we’ve got a night of finales and an all-new show from PBS! Wrap up your weekend by tuning in to the last episode of a 3-part series recounting the lives of Queen Victoria and Her Nine Children after the untimely death of her beloved husband. Followed by the finales of Grantchester Season 4 and the new, critically acclaimed WW2 series Spies of Warsaw!

Have you ever wanted to go into a city and get an authentic glimpse into the town’s everyday life? Explore neighborhoods and cities across America through the lens of the family photo album in the new PBS mini-series Family Pictures USA (Aug 12) as we enlarge our understanding of history, our diversity and our shared values.

And TPT has released clips from an upcoming TPT Original documentary We’re In This Together where Minnesota Veterans, spouses, and children of veterans share their stories, experiences and advice for coping with a military deployment. Co-produced with Anoka County Historical Society.

Host Thomas Allen Harris guides the show’s participants as they are reacquainted with relatives and old friends, introducing fascinating characters to our collective consciousness and discovering surprising connections along the journey. Coming to PBS in August 2019.
