All,

This is a facinating spin on the history of Airstream. To be on top of the showing look at your local scheduling. In will vary, of course, from time zone to time zone...but it also varies from each local PBS station.

Did the trailer go on the African Caravan? Did it?

It's airing here in central AZ on Monday, July 21, at 9pm on PBS channel 8.

PeeWee, do you get this station up there in Dewey? Although I'm sure you already know the answer.

Brad,

The highlands of Arizona, have a problem. No TV, just smoke signals!

The answer to the African Airstream is....well tune in.

We have Direct TV and have all of the channels available in Phoenix. They should add Tucson. But...that's life.

The program for the Phoenix area should be Monday July 21st, at 9:00 PM on Channel 8, our friendly PBS station.

Best.

Dale

At the end of this weeks program they showed a quick look at next weeks show. In the background someone says about the African Caravan, "It was the trip of a lifetime." That voice sounded a lot like Dale.

I've got the DVR setup to record, can't wait...

Right down the road!

I didn't realize it but this Airstream episode takes place in Grover Beach, CA which is really close to us. I happened to catch this article the the San Luis Obispo Tribune today...

Posted on Thu, Jul. 17, 2008
PBS show about airstream trailers that filmed in Grover in March will air Monday

An episode of a PBS show that was filmed in Grover Beach in March will air Monday.
A crew from the show “History Detectives” came to Grover Beach on March 14 to investigate an aluminum Airstream trailer that has been at a Le Sage Riviera Mobile Home Park property since 1968.
Doug and Suzy Carr, who bought the property at the park five years ago, called the show to try to determine whether the trailer was one of 41 that Airstream Inc. founder Wally Byam led on a 221-day, 14,307-mile trek from Cape Town, South Africa, to Cairo, Egypt, in 1959.
“A neighbor told us one day that our Airstream might be famous,” Suzy Carr said in March. “So we started researching it ourselves. But that only took us so far.”
Producers of the show have said they were able determine whether the local trailer was part of the caravan. But they’re not letting on before the show airs.
Local residents can find out by watching KCET at 9 p. m. Monday.

FWIW, the PBS station or TV Guide may not reference "Airstream" in it's general listing. The AS bit will be the second of 3 segments and "China Marine Jacket" is the lead segment & title shown.

Looks like it's on at 9 pm local time on WEDU (channel 3) in Tampa on July 21. There is an option for them to send a one-time reminder so you won't miss it. As busy as my schedule is, I think that's a good idea.
