The Friday Zone
Fridays at 4:30pm and Saturdays at 10am on WTIU.
WTIU's The Friday Zone received a regional Emmy in the Children/Youth Program/Special category for the episode "Under The Sea." The Friday Zone received its award at the 41st Annual Lower Great Lakes Regional Emmy Awards, which took place at a banquet in Cleveland on June 19. The Great Lakes Chapter includes TV stations in Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In the episode, host Katie Sullivan gets scuba lessons from an expert and swims with dolphins at the Indianapolis Zoo. Also, former host Holly Gregory demonstrates different eating methods used by whales. Viewers can see the show online.
Martinsville, Indiana - a small town with a big reputation - will be the focus of the newest OUR TOWN production. The "City of Mineral Water" is the hometown of legendary basketball coach John Wooden, sanitariums featuring healing waters, outstanding high school academics and athletes, an aerospace industry, natural disasters, and controversy. WTIU will explore these subjects and more in the fifth installment of its OUR TOWN series.
Produced in 2008, WILDERNESS PLOTS features a selection of songs by area musicians inspired by Scott Russell Sanders' book about the settling of the American frontier. The program also includes readings by Sanders, interviews with the artists and views of the Southern Indiana scenery. The interviews provide background information and offer insight into the artists: their work, their perspectives, and their love for music, writing and history.
Produced in 2007, RESTORING THE LEGEND focuses on the history and restoration of the French Lick Springs Hotel. The program traces the magnificent history of the hotel—from its days as a spa and unofficial headquarters for the National Democratic Party—to its decline after World War II—and finally to the multi-million dollar restoration that has recently been completed along with a casino, an additional golf course and full spa features.
