1 p.m. | Mattoon: This is Our Story

WEIU-TV's This is Our Story project is a way for us to connect with the communities we serve as well as a way to allow those communities to tell their stories!


5 p.m. | Quilts of Valor

QUILTS OF VALOR is a new special about the Quilts of Valor Foundation (QOVF). Since 2003, QOVF has awarded nearly 60,000 quilts to America's wounded veterans.


7 p.m. | Echoes of Creation

Emmy-award winning filmmaker Jan Nickman has created two revolutionary, visual-feasts of natural wonders, pioneering an entirely new genre of "Nature Immersion Experiences." His films are extraordinary rides that go beyond the discussion about nature and carry the viewer into the experience of nature. Echoes of Creation - as well as its companion film, Sacred Earth -- is exquisitely crafted to allow the viewer to "feel" nature, as if actually being there.

Each film is specifically designed for repeated viewing, to be watched again and again. The film has been successfully tested in pledge and this pledge event was created by KAET-Eight of Phoenix. Pledge hosts are Alice Ferris and Mitch Strohman. As KAET pioneered, the two films can compliment each other in a stack, or they can be used individually anywhere you need a shorter one-hour pledge program in your schedule. As the result of director Jan Nickman's pioneering Music-to-Picture technique, viewers can have a new experience with each viewing - in much the same way as music is enjoyed repeatedly.

Echoes of Creation was filmed in some of the most spectacular and often inaccessible locations of Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and California's Sequoia National Park. The original soundtrack for Echoes of Creation was composed by Grammy-nominated composer David Lanz.


8 p.m. | 50 Years With Peter, Paul & Mary

50 Years with Peter, Paul and Mary is a documentary that celebrates the impact of the preeminent trio that brought folk music to America's mass audiences, combining their artistry with their activism and inspiration over the last 50 years. The program will feature powerful, moving, performances by Peter, Paul and Mary starting with the era of the group's emergence in Greenwich Village through the Civil Rights and anti-war eras where their anthems provided America's soundtrack of social and political change into the 21st century where their legacy and music continues to inform, inspire and enrich successive generations - still providing a moral compass for the way we live our lives.
