FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Denver, CO – On Friday, November 25th, from 7-9 p.m., Colorado Public Television (CPT12) will air an evening of Colorado history programming with help from a time machine. Four episodes of the Emmy Award-winning Colorado Inside Out (CIO) Time Machine signature series will kick off the twentieth season of the program.
The program has now made 10 expeditions into Colorado’s past. On Friday, November 25th CPT-12 will offer four of our favorites, the three Emmy winning episodes from 1858, 1959 and 1935, plus an encore of this year’s trip back to 1951.
Online, CPT12 will offer viewers additional information on the watershed years in Colorado history visited in these programs including timelines of events, background material, photographs, links to the Time Machine’s Colorado history partners and even a journalist’s 1859 account of Denver’s birth during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush.
For twenty years, CIO has offered a balanced, comprehensive look at Public Affairs issues important to the people of Colorado. It was in 2003 when program regular, David Kopel, discovered that the show could travel back in time, providing a holiday tradition for viewers, producers, panelists and craftspeople of the celebrated show.
