In addition to the Colonial House PBS will also do the 1940's House where the people have to deal with air raids, power outages, and rationing.

Nothing like PBS taking a good concept like the 1900's House and redoing it to death! I guess when these programs are all done PBS can start a new channel called PBS-Reality

I wouldn't be shocked to see a PBS-Life or PBS-Reality at some point. Actually, it would be nice if PBS could produce a channel similar to the old "CBS Eye On People" aka "Discovery People" - something with a fair amount of documentary material.

"Digital-video-recording service TiVo Inc. and PBS have formed an alliance, and the partners’ first project will be promoting PBS’ Sept. 11 programming. The two companies plan to work together over six months to promote local PBS stations and to determine ways DVR services can promote public television. "

Looks like PBS is taking a cue from the BBC. :o
