As the Washington, DC flagship PBS station, WETA TV26 has a long tradition of celebrating the people and history of this region through local programming. The newest WETA TV26 production is Arlington National Cemetery, a one hour documentary exploring the history, mission, and daily operations of this final resting place for more than 400,000 Americans. To create this show, WETA interviewed more than a dozen cemetery staff, military personnel, and family members of the fallen, filmed 8 funeral services for Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy service members, and filmed the cemetery during four major National Holidays, amounting to about 60 hours of footage. This new program premieres Wednesday February 5, 2014 at 8pm and will show you Arlington National Cemetery as you’ve never seen it before. Click here for more air dates.
