    Not sure where else to put this, so forgive me if this is not the right place.
    This is probably a long shot, but does anyone have a show lineup from The Learning Channel (now TLC) from 1992/1993?
    An elementary school teacher of mine passed away recently and her family is desperately trying to find an episode of a show (title unknown) where she was featured (I was also in her class at the time and possibly also on the show). The episode would have aired in 1992 or 1993.
    I have already reached out to Discovery, Inc. (parent company) with no luck.
    I was hoping maybe someone here would know or at least point me in the right direction so I can maybe reach out to the production company, if they are still around.

    I've got some 1992 and 1993 TV Guides from various local editions, and the only one I have that contains actual listings for TLC was the June 12-18, 1993, Chicago edition -- it had an experimental "Cable Extra" section at the front with a separate page for each channel that wasn't in the main listings section. See if any of these titles ring a bell.

    Thanks!

    I'm looking through the list and possibly 'Teacher TV' could have been it?
    I guess I'll go down that rabbit hole and see what I can find.

    I'm thinking it was possibly this show 'Teacher TV':
    Teacher TV - Google Search

    However, I can't find any more information other than this. Anyone have any tips on where to go from here?

    Maybe if you would be more forthcoming about specifically what you're looking for we could arrive at a resolution faster.

    So after a bit of research, I'm almost positive the show was called 'Teacher TV'.
    Here's a YouTube clip from one of the episodes:
    I have reached out to the production company, executive producer and NEA, which are all listed in the credits of the show.
    I reached out to the person who uploaded the YouTube video and he said he would check to see if he has any more episodes.

    You're still holding out on what you hope to accomplish outside of satisfying a curiosity for anachronism.

    Dude, he said what he was trying to do in the first post! He's looking for the episode because the family of a now deceased teacher is looking for it. That teacher was his teacher and he might be in the class/show.

    The OP didn't include the name of the educator. That's always a good place to start since "teacher", "TV", "The Learning Channel" and other details that we have aren't very confining as search terms.

    So far the only name I've found is Mary McKnight-Brown but she worked in Boston.

    WorldCat.org lists two or three episodes on VHS.

    Her name was Mrs. Tollison. She taught in Greensboro, NC.
