Programming Preemptions during AugustFest 2014

Programming Preemptions

Posted by Holly Emig on

OETA's August pledge drive begins Thursday, August 7th and goes until Sunday, August 17th.  

DOC MARTIN, DOWNTON ABBEY, NOVA, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW and the rest of your OETA favorites wouldn’t be possible without financial support from viewers like you. We want to keep bringing you these great programs (because we love them, too!), but we can’t unless we receive support. 

We have some new pledge programs this year that you might find interesting. We have two new behind-the-scenes programs, one for DOC MARTIN and one for MIDSOMER MURDERS. We’ll also bring you a new program called LENT AT EPHESUS, which is about Nuns from rural Missouri who perform traditional and original chants. (I love this one!) We have new programming for train lovers and ways to help you detox and end dieting forever. We’ll bring you new concerts from Steve Martin and Billy Joel, and we return to Downton Abbey with a recap and a look forward to Season 5.

Look on our schedules page to find a complete list of the AugustFest programs.
