New York City doesn't get it until New Year's Eve. I went to www.PBS.org, entered my zip code in the space indicated in "Station Finder" and searched "balanchine" to ascertain that.

I may be mistaken, but I don't think HD excludes analog viewers. I think it means that the film was shot in with high-definition technology.

If the ballet gods are smiling on us, maybe the dvd will be available before too long. :flowers:

In Los Angeles area, this was on KCET last Thursday Nov. 9, at 9 p.m. I saw the first 45 min; I had to leave to make an airport pickup. From what I saw, I would certainly want to see it again, and the whole program, of course; it was made only 3 years ago. Since my husband was out of town and since I am incredibly techno-incapable, I didn't tape it either. I was hoping to see it re-run this afternoon on KCET again. But no such luck. I wanted my daughter in DC to see it as well, but 10:30 p.m. on a Monday night will not go over well with the RA's at her residency. Rats!!

With everyone's help I finally found out I can see it on WETA on Monday @ 8:00PM or the Maryland station later.

Looking foward to it. I recommend a DVR or TIVO to anyone who is thinking about getting one. They

make recording, skipping commercials etc so easy. Then you can copy to VHS or any other storage system.

In the San Francisco area, it was on KQED tonight and will be on several times during the week. It is well worth seeing and even recording!

In the Greater Boston area, it is showing today. Unfortunately, it is only accessible IF one has HDTV, (on channel 802). Not sure if & when it might show on the non-HD channels.

Anyone else have more info re: this? Previous forums here also stated that it would be released on DVD ard Christmas? I certainly hope so.

In San Francisco KQED has contradictory info on Bringing Back Balanchine scheduling. It will probably be shown as follows, but everyone should double-check--

Thursday 11/16/2006 at 9pm (The weekly schedule has Walking the Bible/40 Years in the Desert here).

Sunday, 11/19/06 at 6pm

Saturday, 12/9/06 at 4pm

It's listed as 56 minutes so I guess we're missing a significant chunk, hopefully not all the good stuff.

Just tuned in to WETA and the only thing playing is Antiques Roadshow. :(

I see it's on MPT next Monday at 10:30pm, so I look forward to watching it then. :( Not sure about WETA.

Looks like KQED's broadcasts this week in the San Francisco Bay Area are only on their HD channel, no conventional (4th ring) viewing available.

From the research I did, I found that it is only being broadcasted on PBS HD (High Definition). Anyone know if it will be rebroadcasted on regular PBS in the near future??

I called my PBS station in Boston and they said they were not planning on showing it anytime soon. They said maybe next year-- it was only on HD here also. It's very disappointing since I really wanted to see it.

I'm not sure if this is universal to PBS stations, but I know that my local affiliate (KCTS/Seattle) made a significant investment in the hardware to broadcast and create HD/TV shows, and I've wondered if they are planning their own programming to highlight/promote that format.
