Hittin' The Road
Posted: April 18, 2015 by Name Withheld
I just watched the episode on astronomy. While the guests being interviewed were articulate and knowledgable, it was extremely difficult to stay focused on the discussion because the background music was incredibly distracting. Not only was it too loud, but also agitating in its fast, techno beat. It was absolutely the wrong thing for the pace of the interview conversation. Much of the show seems to embrace the fast pace (agitated/hyped) style - which is fine, as long as you are not having an informative discussion. Please, feel free to relax, slow down a bit, de-hype. It will make it a more enjoyable program.
Thank you!

Thank you so much for being on the leading edge of information sharing. For not leading the party line. For sharing ALL the information, no matter how "out there" it seems. I'm so grateful that I can tune into my own TV in my home and get educated to this level. Please keep it up! Anna
Garbage science in Seeds of Death

Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (11 comments)
I am so disappointed in the programming you are showing tonight and your labeling it as a serious, scientific "documentary". Seeds of Death is total junk science. This is not a service to the public, it is garbage. The "science" in the documentary is not peer-reviewed, factual, or acknowledged by the scientific community. Contrary to the documentary's claim, working scientists at universities and industry are not part of a vast conspiracy to foist GMOs on the public. They are bright caring folks who have dedicated lives to improving the food supply, environment, and human health. As a PhD scientist in molecular biology and educator, I am appalled that the Seeds of Death program and the guests speaking during the pledge break sound more like conspiracy theorists than scientists. The guest on currently is just ranting, sounds like a right-wing survivalist. So disappointed...

Program: Brit Floyd Live at Red Rocks (1 comment)
Hi, As I was reading the tv shows for the week on CPT Week, it lists Brit Floyd Live at Red Rocks. It then states that it was filmed at Liverpool Echo Park. I think we all agree Red Rocks is in Morrison, Colorado. Thanks, Paul Harrison Morrison
CPT12 Response:
Aaahhh. The perils of cutting and pasting...

You are of course correct! I picked up the wrong program info when I added this show to our list of highlights.

Thanks for letting me know!

It's too late for the email that went out, but I can at least change our highlights page on the website.

Thanks for subscribing to the newsletter. All feedback is welcome!

Press Release from the CSBA regarding Honey bee swarm season
Posted: April 15, 2015 by Name Withheld
PLEASE NOTE: I have a couple of photos of honey bee swarms if you would like them for this story. This is a time sensitive story and is important information for the community at large - so needs to be broadcast soon. Thank you for your attention to this. Honey Bee Swarm Season is Nearly Upon Us In Colorado Mid-April to late June is a typical time for honey bee swarm season in Colorado. “We will be expecting swarms to emerge in the next couple of weeks.” according to Beth Conrey, President of the Colorado State Beekeepers Association (CSBA). The Colorado State Beekeepers Association (CSBA), a statewide organization of beekeepers, is dedicated to honey bee health. For the 7th year, they are running the “Swarm Hotline” and are asking folks to keep an eye out for swarming honey bees. The swarm hotline has been such a success that the CSBA has set up a new toll-free statewide number for swarm calls: 844-779-2337. A swarm is one of the true wonders of nature. Swarms emerge in the spring when a healthy hive becomes too crowded and part of them leave to form a new hive. When the queen lands on a branch or post, the rest of the bees all land near her forming a “ball of bees”. Swarms are harmless—but can be intimidating to the average citizen. Conrey says, “Do not spray a swarm with water or insecticide. Simply pick up the phone and call the swarm hotline. We will dispatch a beekeeper to pick it up—usually within an hour.” Swarms are not only a fascinating natural process of honey bee reproduction, they are a sign of something promising: healthy honey bees in Colorado. The health and well being of honey bees has been in jeopardy since 2006. Beekeepers began reporting losses of 30-90 percent of their hives, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The bees were just gone without a trace, leaving behind a puzzle that has a label, Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). Bee scientists say there’s no single explanation for CCD: it’s just everything that bees are exposed to these days: pests, pathogens, pesticides, and the lack of floral diversity. As Earth Day approaches the CSBA wants to make people more aware of the important link between healthy honey bee populations, human interaction, and our food supply. According to the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), bees pollinate more than $15 billion worth of crops each year in the United States alone. Put another way, one of every three bites of food Americans consume comes from a plant visited by bees or other pollinators. Without bees, many fruits, vegetables and nuts (especially almonds) would disappear from our diets. There are thousands of managed bee colonies in Colorado and they are typical of colonies throughout the country with losses in the 30-70% range annually. Bees that are healthy enough to swarm are called “survivor” bees and are crucial to sustaining bee populations in Colorado. If you see a swarm, please call the SWARM HOTLINE: 1-844-779-2337 or for more information about honey bees and swarms go to www.coloradobeekeepers.org.
Boycott MHz Worldview
Posted: April 15, 2015 by Stephen Reynolds
According to their website, all new nightly mystery programming on Worldview will only be available on their $7.99/ mo. paid streaming service. Only re-runs of their mystery programs will be shown over the air in the evening. Since I've seen all of them, I guess I'll not be watching your MHz channel any longer. I'm tired of everything great on TV going to paid subscription models (think Universal Sports). Please consider finding a different program provider to replace MHz. I will be watching your primary channel. Thanks, Steve Reynolds
BBQ with Franklin
Posted: April 14, 2015 by Name Withheld
Will you be airing episodes of "BBQ with Franklin" in May?
CPT12 Response:
  
Yes, we are recording this program and it starts feeding from satellite mid-May.  Who doesn’t love a good BBQ?  Just in time for grilling season.  Be sure to keep an eye on our program listings on our website – you get visibility about a month out.  We have done our May schedules already so June would be a good time to check the website.
 
We have a number of new cooking shows that I am excited about – Steve Raichlen’s Project Smoke, Taste of the Islands with Chef Irie, Cooking on the Wild Side…yum!
 
Thanks for writing and happy cooking!

Thanks for Denver City Council Debates

Program: Denver City Council Debates 2015 (1 comment)
Thank you, CPT12, AARP, Dominic Dezzutti, and Candidates for Denver City Council, for your respective contributions to the Denver City Council Debates 2015 series. It is useful and inspiring to watch articulate people talk about issues that directly affect our lives and our communities. I live in Littleton, so I don’t vote in Denver Council elections, but I’m certainly impacted by the election process and outcomes in Denver (and Littleton shares a short city boundary with Denver District 2). I’m glad Denver voters have this series as a resource to inform their votes. There are format choices for how to present the candidates’ ideas. I think the Q&A interview format you’re using, with all participating candidates and varying the speaker order for each question, works better than confrontational debates. This Q&A focus on issues seems to provide the most useful information to voters in a short time while also giving balanced opportunities to candidates. I appreciate the thought and work that everyone put into making these short episodes so productive. Wish there was more time for longer episodes with more questions. I didn’t realize the District 2, 4 and 6 episodes would be on, and stumbled on them Friday April 10 by luck. Free, independent, active and fair media are essential to democracy and to healthy communities. So, thanks, CPT12, for producing and airing this series and thereby serving those values. My modest level of support is well-invested in CPT12. P Chadbourne broadcast viewer, Littleton

Gender pay gap
Posted: April 7, 2015 by Bill Fiero
Both the federal government and the state of Colorado have laws that guarantee pay equality for equal work regardless of race, gender or age. But, there is a gender pay gap in Colorado according to studies by the AAUW. Why don't you do a study of the gender pay gap in Colorado to check on the facts? If you also find that a gap exists, find out why the state can't or won't uphold the law. Also, examine Colorado companies that are responsible for the pay gap so the public can exercise their right to do do business (or not) with those companies. Elizabeth Cady Stanton championed the cause of gender equality years ago -- why shouldn't you, in the public interest, continue the crusade and get out the facts to the public. Certainly many of your audience would be interested. It bothers me to think that my grand-daughters, on graduating from college, may not earn a salary equal to a man graduating from the same school at the same time offered the same job. Please respond to the request. NO RESPONSE BY YOU EXCEPT TO POST. DO SOMETHING -- give the public a show concentrating attention on this gap -- focus on why regulators are doing nothing! Give us the names of companies reponsible so we can boycott them. TAKE ACTION!

I moved back to Colorado Springs after living in the Portland Oregon area for 25 years. Gardening and all things associated is my passion. Whoever is selecting the segments shown for the victory garden show is Boring! May I suggest viewing a few shows Portland airs. Also, there should be more shows on what gardening and farming business are doing in the state of colorado. Visit state wide gardening centers and landscapers. More should be done to get Coloradans to recycle, get all homes on solar and wind energy. Especially create programs to get low income families on this. Wake up colorado! We are behind and should become leaders. Thank you for taking a moment to read my comments.

Program: THE VANISHING OF PATO (1 comment)
This is based on one of Andrea Camilleri's stories that is not about Montalbano. Set in Montalbano's fictional town of Vigata in the late 19th century, it is a very clever portrayal of Sicilian life and manners as seen through a missing person case that begins as a tug of war between the local police and the Carabinieri. Great actors including Nino Frassica (aka Marshal Cecchini on Don Matteo).

One of the shows is about a favorite of mine, Tom Rigney and his band Flambeau. They are popular at Dixieland Festivals, although they don't play dixieland. There are several Jazz Clubs in Colorado.

Seeking the Truth about Obamacare
Posted: March 30, 2015 by Mar Barman
Program: Devil's Advocate with Jon Caldara (3 comments)
I just watched the latest episode of Devil's Advocate with the segment on Obamacare with Linda Gorman. I thought there was a number of valid questions raised about the unfortunate involvement of Jonathan Gruber in the run-up to Obamacare. But it was obvious that the real purpose of the segment was to bash Obamacare from yet another angle. For a completely different angle on how Obamacare has played out since (5 years after being signed), I'd urge everyone (especially John Caldera and Linda Gorman) to read Paul Krugman's excellent op-ed piece in the 03/30/15 edition of the NYTimes entitled "Imaginary Health Care Horrors". If a person is truly objective and wants to find out the truth about an issue, one will seek information from many sources, not just the pundits and demagogues. They have no interest whatsoever in the objective truth on an issue (Obamacare being a prime example). Their only interest is to push their own agenda by whatever means possible and, if necessary, the truth be damned.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and feedback.
I have forwarded your comments to Mr. Caldera and Dr. Gorman.

Paul Murray Liveis an Australian television current affairs and commentary program  hosted by broadcaster Paul Murray.
As you may know, MHz Worldview originates from MHz Networks in Virginia and Colorado Public Television  broadcasts it “as is” on Channel 12.3.  MHz  apparently changed their schedule for 2 pm weekdays.  On Monday, March 23rd Korea Today changed to Paul Murray Live.  At this time, Korea Today is no longer airing.  Keep an eye on our website at CPT12.org/tv_schedule/full_day_schedules.cfm or check out the MHz site at  mhznetworks.org/schedule.  Please keep in mind the MHz network schedule is listed on Eastern time.
You can stream  Korea Today through the Arirang website at:

You can contact MHz directly to let them know you would prefer Korea Today. They can be reached at:

these negative comments on the perfect dog training system

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (23 comments)
after posting i read some of the negative comments. sorry to say but thats just ignorant people. if you're posting saying that dons system is dog abuse you either have not watched the video or you have no idea what you're talking about. it's really sad to see people put negative comments about something that could save the dogs life. Dons system uses a series of natural corrections that are naturally used by the dogs mother. how could this be abuse if its used by dogs own mother. I guess negativity comes with any kind of system but if this TV station is going to consider this person, you need to read into it yourself. Because if anyone has correctly tried the system they know that it is meant for you to have a safe dog with all the freedom he or she wants. for those who think this is dog abuse. what i want you to do is this go to the store buy a prong collar put it on your neck pull that thing as hard as you can and you tell me that it hurts because it doesn't. ( tried it myself) and if a prong collar doesn't hurt then the commad collar surely doesnt. so where is this abuse you speak of?

i cannot express what don sullivian has done for me and my dog. one night i was iust watching tv. infomercials and i saw dons training system. i was sold instantly. ive grown up my whole life seeing people train dogs the wrong way getting no results, but a dog that might listen IF he or she wants that treat. which in the end could end up leading to your dog getting hit by a car or something which no one wants. this training video has made my dog truly the perfect dog. imagine having a awesome loving dog that looks up to you and wants to please you thusly following every command without a question everytime. thats the perfect dog. never EVER having to worry if your dogs gona stick around or run away or listen when you call it under any distraction possible. no other training system period can come close to these results. everyone i see asks where my dog was trained. saying they cant believe how good your dog is how do you get it to listen to you? and i tell them. the dog father. im writing here to make people understand that if used correctly, this is the best training method for any dog of any age. you want a dog you can trust? this is how you get it. thank you don for everything youve done for me and my dog shes perfect and thats thanks to you. i will continue to tell everyone i see about how good it is and continue to use it my whole life with whatever dogs i get.

This is such a great help! I have a Brittany and she's unruly. Don's training system works! My pup is the most well behaved dog at the park because of his training and I would never have found him if it weren't for stations like yours! So thank you! I smile whenever I see the show on because I know someone out there like me is watching it and will benefit greatly from Don's wisdom and experience.

Don Sullivan's Perfect Dog training system - WORKS
Posted: March 24, 2015 by Brenda H
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (23 comments)
Don Sullivan's Perfect Dog training system works! After watching the videos and following through with his methods our dog, Luke, is incredible! He is so good that people often stop and ask how we trained him. He listens and pays attention and for once in our lives we have a dog that doesn't tear things up or act all crazy. We take him everywhere we can and he is hardly ever alone. Friends stop by to play with him while I am at work. This dog is happier, healthier and more well balanced because he is well trained! He is welcome wherever we go! That is so much better than leaving him in a crate all day or in the backyard. We know people who have sent their dogs off to training camp or boarding school and spent thousands of dollars just to get a dog that listens "sometimes". Our dog (a catahoulah/lab mix) was rescued for a $100 adoption fee, but he is now priceless because of his behavior! [We would never sell him!]

I greatly appreciate this "Don Sullivan's Perfect Dog Training System". I recommend this to every dog owners who struggle with their furry friends. It worked so well on my little terror, more like a little killer, Eddie. You would not believe... He was a very aggressive one as a puppy of 6 weeks-old. He started to show his aggressions toward humans at the very beginning with me. As normal as a puppy, he came to me/ humans and beg me/humans to cuddle him; however, he always started to attack me and other people in a couple of minutes. He acted like Tasmanian Devil in Warner Bros. cartoons. Funny? It's not when your puppy does this all the time. I found later on that his first owner didn't treat him well -- probably severely abused him -- as soon as he was born, and he had a big blood stain on his neck though he did not let me touch and examine. He was possibly so screwed up in his head. My family thought his reaction was funny at first, but they were so afraid of him in the end of 3 weeks with him. I believe he meant to kill us if he could. He went on and on like this till 3 months-old. I have tried other dog training methods beforehands. None worked. Later on, I heard about The Perfect Dog Training System from my friend and my mother living overseas. I gave a shot. Behold, it worked! It worked for Eddie. Yes, he gave me a hard time in the first 3 weeks of this training, but he quickly began to understand that he would receive a praise and several loving pats from me every time he did what I asked him to, and then he found himself feeling good doing it. I could see this because he started wagging his tail much more often and looked much happier in his face and his act. He had mastered all basic commands, such as "sit," "down," "stay," etc., and some funny/adorable dog tricks in 2 months. He surprised the dog trainers at his puppy preschool and vets with his cleverness. One dog trainer sincerely suggested me to work for him. Unfortunately, Eddie was taken by my sneaky ex-husband, who despised and ignored Eddie in the beginning. He used to have many dogs in his life, but he'd never seen such an agressive/vicious dog as a puppy and he absolutely hated Eddie. My Ex loved him so much by the time Eddie had his first birthday with us. Now, I want you to know that I've done this training for Eddie's sake, not for my own sake. Think about this; "Who would take care of him if something happens to me? Who would love him? No one would. They would take him to a pound only to eauthanase him, would they?" If it works for Eddie, I believe it will for other dogs. In fact, several other dogs of my friends, whom I let use Eddie's old unused collars and study what Don teaches on videos, are doing very well. Yes, I say "unused" because you don't need to use them on your dog once your dog masters it. If you seriously study well about dogs' nature, you'll know Don's teachings are quite well founded, not an animal abuse at all. I'll use this training system again when I get a new dog for my own. Thanks, Don!

Don Sullivan's training system

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (23 comments)
If it weren't for this training system, the clarity of instructions and beauty of the collar's simplicity, my Jack Russell terrier would have been the official "Dog from HeLL". After investing in this system, I followed the instructions and within days, her attitude changed; in fact did a complete 180! Until the day she died, she was a loving, obedient yet boisterous ball of fun. Our newest Jack Russell (spayed) female is a dingbat - and yet we love her to bits. Thanks to the training system, she has gone from needing a fenced yard to being off-leash all the time, perfect recall (it fixes hearing problems!!), and an absolute darling out and about our barn. She respects the equines and keeps my 106 lb girl exercised. Speaking of which, the 106 lb "puppy" learned very quickly that she needs to be gentle and obedient, and while her good nature is, I'm sure, in her genes, she's also respectful and an absolute joy. We never walk on-leash unless we are at the vet's or have to be on the road. If you haven't tried this system, you don't know what you're missing out on! Best, absolute BEST money (other than the dogs!) that I've ever spent! Thank you Mr. Sullivan! B.

Don Sullivan's technique of immediate, humane correction, plus praise have taught me so much about dogs and their pack mentality. Everything with them is about respect. Until I learned this by watching Sullivan's training videos, my 1-year old lab/doberman was awful. There were times I just wanted to give her away because she would not listen. She incessantly barked if I left her, ran off if off-leash, begged for food, jumped on guests, etc.. Seeing her now, through consistent training becoming a part of our LIFESTYLE, fills me with joy. At 2-years old, she acts as a therapy dog to my disabled grandmother, she can be trusted off leash in the park throwing ball, she never jumps on others, and I can keep her in my car or in my home alone, without worry of her behavior. It's really a blessing having a dog/companion that I'm not embarrassed of or have to restrain all of the time. She's happier now because she has more freedom. Thank you, Don Sullivan! I know some people may not agree with his techniques, but there is NO harm being done to dogs trained with this system. When it's followed correctly, there are results, PLUS an all around happier and FRIENDLIER dog.

Gallagher: One of a Kind was excellent. Anyone who knows Dennis (and almost everyone in Denver, Wheat Ridge, Arvada, etc. does)will appreciate the outstanding program showcasing a dedicated public servant and compassionate and caring man who truly is "One of a Kind". My husband and Dennis were classmates and fellow janitors at Holy Family School and much of what was related in the program I've heard before. Dennis may retire from the Denver Auditor's Office but he will always be politicking.

Gary Null's Water Filter - Appearance
Posted: March 21, 2015 by Thomas Morey
Former Radio & Journalism Vet here. I wrote prior (during the above mentioned broadcast). I predicted and asked your response to my question that "Although, I applaud you for showing "Seeds of Death", "Taking back your power" and "Gasland". It seems the only reason you Aired these very informative and enlightening Documentaries, was to generate revenue. I asked, " I would support CPT 12 if you would show these Progressive & Factual Documentaries, during your normal Broadcast Programming. Not just for Monetary Gain...Didn't happen.. Then, Gary Null insulted my intellegence by claiming his Outrageously Priced Water Filter, is available because he cares about our well-being. In the event of a Major Climate, Political. or Financial Disaster. $159.00 for Unit. $49.00/ Filter Replacemt. Unit uses 5 filters. Whom? besides already wealthy or those whom are much more financially secure, are going to realistically. be able to have access to this technology. Yet were donating filters to other Countries. I was aware then , and more now. This is business as usual. The American People are being preyed upon yet again! You all should be ashamed! Preying on very realistic fears of basic survival. To line your own pockets! People barely surviving already, may spend "make or break" money to have some hope. Possibly not eating, so you get your $50, and Null (and the nasty looking guest of Null, arms crossed, learing into the camera), walks w$150.00 per unit... All of you are NO BETTER....WORSE...actually than Busch and Cheney, Koch Brothers or The Banksters. I am crwating a webpage to address these and other American Rights/Corruption Issues. And will publish this letter among others. And will contact Mr. Null as well. I was hoping being a FORMER viewer, I would have received a response initially. I anticipate the same with this correspondence. Respectfully, Thomas Morey 2418 Federal Blvd. Ste. 305 Denver, CO. 80211 (720)-477-8970
Picture size for channel 252
Posted: March 20, 2015 by Rosalie Gansecki
I loved watching your international mysteries but in the last few weeks you have done something to the picture. Everything is out of proportion making it hard to watch. Please go back to your previous format. If people want to elongate the screen they can do it themselves. There is no way now to make the actors look normal. Why on earth would you do this? We talked to MHZ and they are as perplexed as I am. What is going on? We were so excited about channel 252 so this is very disconcerting. Help!
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for contacting KBDI Colorado Public Television channel 12.
We are not seeing the problem you are describing. We monitor all of our three channels everyday over the air and on Comcast.
We are broadcasting MHZ Comcast 252 in the correct 4x3 letterboxed standard definition format. On an HDTV this will have black bars on the top and sides.
The reason this is happening has to do with settings on your HDTV.
We have seen TV’s with the “set aspect ratio automatically” or “set by program” get that process wrong on many occasions. Make sure the 4x3 setting is selected and auto wide mode is disabled.
Auto wide sounds like what you are describing, and the “problem” solely lies within your TV settings.
 
If you have any questions feel free to contact the station and ask for Jonathan or Mark.

tell viewers where your nature programs are filmed
Posted: March 19, 2015 by Frank Slaninger
Your program, "Red Rocks Serenade," set a good example which you failed to follow in other programs. The "Red Rocks Serenade" identified each location and each musical piece in advance. The location appeared on the bottom left. The music appeared on the bottom right. We knew what we were seeing and hearing. This enabled us to enjoy it more. But, in recent shows, about reddish caverns, and Alaska and the northwest, with spiritualistic narratives, you don't identify the beautiful places we delight in seeing. Maybe, identification is buried in the credits at the end of the program - but, if so, that is too little, too late. Please, tell us in advance, the location of the places - the particular name of the scene, the state, the country. Please add location information to new programs and reruns of old ones. Thank you. Frank Slaninger
CPT12 Response:
I think you saw this on Channel 6 as we haven’t aired it since August of last year.  I hear what you are saying though – it is nice to know the locations of where things are filmed and the credits are either too small or roll too fast to read.  I do know that information on the bottom of screens can sometimes interfere with closed captioning so that may be why it isn’t done more often.

Program: Effortless Healing with Dr. Joseph Mercola (2 comments)
Dear Bob, May I humbly suggest you do your research. Your understanding of what is considered healthy is off and concerning. You saying Dr. Mercola says that vaccines and sodium fluoride are bad IS accurate. Doctors have confirmed sodium fluoride is the number one cancer-causing carcinogen. Fluoride has a very negative effect on your pineal gland. Vaccines have mercury among other poisons. These "ideas" are not dangerous; they are truth. The FDA is in bed with Big Pharma, so they are obviously threatened by people like Dr. Mercola speak about how we as humanity can take back our health organically, naturally. I may not necessarily agree with Dr. Mercola on all his points of view, but he is far more credible than the FDA and Big Pharma. Evolve Bob. To CPT, I support you all providing empowering, enlightening programming like Dr. Mercola's Effortless Healing. Thank you so very much. Continue representing your state's trend setting style of bringing empowerment to humanity. Sincerely, RJ

Hello, Just when I begin to get in the rhythm of viewing Charlie Rose, it disappears for weeks at a time. Can you explain your reasoning behind the way you schedule it. I see that his show is often on other channels with new editions. The moving-target, hunt and peck searching for shows is wearing me out. It seems that when things settle down after a flurry of new programs being shown all at once (Masterpiece, Arts, Charlie Rose, etc) then all we get for ever-increasing spans of time are docu-tizements and many other programs of questionable content value. Thank You Rachal B

hi, I need a film that was shown on your station long ago not certain of the title, if you do not have the video, can you tell the Real Title of it so I can search on ebay or something for it? It was long ago 8 years or so...and covered the building of the Missions with Native labour. i really need that film for a story i am working on for a native magazine called www.WhispersnThinder.Org specaial features. thank yo. Truly, Christine Boles aka Chris Boles,writer
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your note regarding a program you saw on our channel.
 
Sadly, we don’t have any information to offer unless you can give us a better description of what you saw.  From a cursory search on Google, I found this link to a PBS show, called, The West, that covered Father Serra.  http://www.pbs.org/weta/thewest/people/s_z/serra.htm
 
I am unsure if this is what you were looking for.  If it is not, can you provide a bit more information about the program that you saw on our channel?
 
I hope we can help you in your research.
 
Thanks,

program on women in war throughout US history
Posted: March 7, 2015 by Name Withheld
Good information, good show HOWEVER the show after 9:45pm on Saturday, March 7th had good audio but really poor double picture and it also vibrated. So, women portrayed in history are not important enough for you technical people to see to it that the program airs in a way that the music and pictures are clear..........!!! and/or enjoyable to watch and not to just listen to. Hmmmmm.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email, though our apologies for the problems with the program. “Unsung Heroes” is an important and informative program and we certainly want all our viewers to be able to see it. Unfortunately there were some problems on our end, due to the daylight savings time change-over and configurations changes we made to our equipment , and we were not able to get them corrected until later in the evening.
 
Although it’s not the same as being able to enjoy the program on your television, it is available on our website by clicking this link  http://video.cpt12.org/video/2365252314/
 
Again, our apologies and we hope you are able to view the program online.

Peter Paul and Mary program
Posted: March 5, 2015 by David Meineke
I'm a Peter Paul and Mary fan. However, as we glorify those who protested the Vietnam War, we fail to remember those who fought because they felt they should do so to protect their country and what it stood for. We don't hear of the soldiers who came back on stretchers and were spit on by these protesters. They went to defend their country and were treated as traitors by those who were to chicken to serve.

Harsh legal System Protestors VS Authority Defenders
Posted: March 5, 2015 by Susan Hall
Program: Colorado Inside Out (12 comments)
I Watched the Colorado Inside Out and saw each person on the panel discuss the event about protestors against police brutality and discrimination and perhaps should also have included biased and unjust sentencing in the US as well, since there is a much higher rate of African Americans, Native American or minorities than Europeans in Jails and prisons, on death row, released from death row and prisons after the introduction of DNA; as well as often for smaller offenses which are about fines instead of jail. The discussion on this program had David kopel dividing the people who used WASHABLE paint on a memorial at the police department from the other protestors. He had stated that a person of the utmost importance and victim who was shot to death within minutes of a confrontation with the police, had her mother say she disapproved of those who defaced the memorial. This may separate the Hernandez family, but it does not separate the other protesters. I am not saying they were in agreement to the Washable Red Paint, but I have not seen any good media that has truly investigated that perspective. Therefore for David Kopel and Dmminic Dezzutti to call the people using the paint scum bags seems unprofessional as a person getting the advantages of the media, which is extremely expensive and partially why most all of the legislators are such wealthy people from one of the more media supported 2 parties, even though there are many people who are registered as independents or with a different party other than the Democrats and Republicans, like the Green Party. I felt like the protestors around the country along with the Democracy Now with Michelle Alexander, author of the New Jim Crow brought out some enlightening and important statistics that had to do with the issues the protestors were wanting to present to the public. Davod Kopel says he does not believe protestors should even ever be allowed to block traffic, but I am not sure the media and therefore the public would notice the issues brought out without something out of the perfectly comfortable normal routine of US residents. It took a great deal of streets blocked to allow African Americans an equal right to voting and public facilities as well as stopping the Viet Nam war, which was never an option for votes. Certainly the media and the US has not made enough difference to cover the warehouse in Chicago were the police have been torturing mostly minority citizens and one of their officers was promoted to being used in Guantánamo; nor has the US's Concentration Camp where 100 men have been held with a target of certain people of religious afiliation had much coverage and perhaps it is due to protestors not doing something out of the normal comfortable entertainment envirnment. We have seen the media reveal from time to time those officers who save people, but we don't hear the names of those officers who are abusive and charged kike they are equal citizens in the site of the law. We don't hear the names of those soldiers who poked the eye out of the British Muslim, Mozzem Beggs or the soldiers who beat the Australian David Higgs till he told him he would confess to anything iin hopes he would not be beat to death. Nor do we know the names of the CIA agents in the cells with the 3 men who were found suffigated with rags down their throats. We hear little about the horible abuses in the US prisons as well as the holdings of hostages who are cleared US prisons outside of the US but still held for 13 years after being tortured. I guess I would add that there has been A nice protest on 52nd and Wadsworth for 13 years against the wars, and this month a letters a quiet stand against the TPP and therere is little coverage about it. Perhaps it would be better to have a program where the Coloradoans get to hear what new bills are coming out and have different political and interested groups research and then say where they stand on the bills, rather than to have a pundants make assessments without researching the issues.

How to abuse your dog like a Pro

I refuse to watch your station because you promote this infomercial dog abuser. Behavioral science has shown us how dogs learn and how to shape their behavior, keep their stress levels down and actually teach them rather than abuse them into listening. This ignorant man prides himself on having no education in canine behavior or training, and yet sells his little kit on how to abuse your dog to make it listen on a public station that purports to promote education. Shame on Channel 12, and I won't watch you until you get rid of this terrible program.

CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email.
You are correct. Colorado Public Television does not air the PBS News Hour. The other PBS station in the metro area, Rocky Mountain PBS – Channel 6 does broadcasts the PBS News Hour over the air at 6pm on weekdays and PBS News Hour Weekend at 5:30pm on Saturdays.  Because RMPBS currently offers the program and serves much of the same geographic area, and taking into account  the timely nature of  the program (i.e. it would be old news if we broadcast it even an hour after RMPBS), we believe our  programming funds are best used to acquire alternative news sources.

Continued failure of healthy skepticism
Posted: February 19, 2015 by Rebecca Hart-Schmidt
Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (11 comments)
I'm grateful that CPTV has made clear in their response to my concerns just how willing they are to suspend healthy skepticism of implausible (and debunked claims)when presented as the political opinions their executives support. An individual who profits from fear and ignorance, and denies the existence of AIDS is not to be trusted on matters scientific, medical, or otherwise. I'm disturbed that these same executives are unwilling to acknowledge the well-published criticisms (easily found) of this "documentary" and seem amenable to the idea that a single corporation has paid off and manipulated the majority of Colorado voters. This failure of responsible journalism is an insult to to viewers and their contributions through public funding or individual donations. I'll be ensuring that my friends and family know why CPTV does not merit the reputation of PBS as the "most trusted" source.

We try and provide a variety of music programs, gospel being just one type.  And if the truth be told, we are really pretty thin on music programs still in program rights.  As we get more program offers from our distribution channels we will have more offerings.  Of course, that is if any are being produced!  We hope so!

Thanks for watching,

hi, my wife is a donates at both public tv stations and i donate to three public radio stations, we like public broadcasting!!! so when i heard a story about congress allowing tv stations into smaller markets i thought of you and the radio station KSUT four corners public radio. there is a great need a public tv station it the four corners area. i think you guys should hook-up with them and bring your HD signal to the four corners area. please think about it, your station would be a great partner with the people at KSUT. love your programing especially 12-3, with all the great foreign news and the great mystery programs from the rest of europe...keep a good thing going! tony revello p.s. i've also written to KSUT with the same suggestion.

Program: Masterpiece (6 comments)
I have been watching the Downton Abbey series from episode1, no more. The story lines are redundant and boring. I have to check to make sure I am not tuned in to the Hallmark channel and watching on of their sappy soap opera movies.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
I am sorry you have gotten disenchanted with Downton Abbey. Maybe they should have stopped at 4 seasons.
As an alternative, you may enjoy some of the international dramas on our channel 12.3 including:
UNNI LINDELL Wednesday, February 18 at 7:00 pm on Channel 12.3
TATORT: COLOGNE  Saturday, February 21 at 7:00 pm on Channel 12.3
The International Mysteries  featured on channel 12.3 are subtitled but are extremely well done and a big favorite with our viewers.
If you are a Comcast/Xfinity  viewer, you can find CPT12.3 on channel 252 in Denver and channel 188 in Colorado Springs.

Please stop broadcasting the program. What Dr. Amen is saying is nonsense and giving false hope to people. ADD can not be found in the brain using brain scans. What he is doing is about making money through his clinics selling what amounts to snake oil and it is irresponsible for your TV station to continue to broadcast his seminars on ADD because his claims are false. Yes there are things that brain scans can be used to find in the brain but ADD is not one of them. As someone with ADD what Dr. Amen is doing makes me angry because he is taking people who are desperate to find out what is going on with them and giving them false information and hope.ADD can only be diagnosed through family history and there is no brain scan capable of finding it in the brain. Anyone who makes claims like Dr. Amen is selling quackery.

Access from Pueblo, CO
Posted: February 14, 2015 by Name Withheld
Hi, CPB-12, We think the shows you've been broadcasting recently are dynamite. We catch them when we travel to Denver. But it's frustrating that we do not receive Station 12 through the public airwaves at our home 10 miles east of Colorado City (30+ miles south of Pueblo, CO), just CPB Station 8. We also do not subscribe to cable or satellite TV service. We were members last year, but let our membership expire because we have no known way of accessing your shows. Can we ever receive Station 12 programming? We do have high-speed (fiber-optic) internet access and a smart TV & DVD player. We would love to start watching again and support your programming!

Uncritical airing of irresponsible pseudoscience
Posted: February 14, 2015 by Rebecca Hart-Schmidt
Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (11 comments)
As a biologist, mother, and Colorado resident, I was deeply disappointed to see this program airing this morning. PBS is considered to have a unique level of credibility in science and journalistic programming, and it is an abuse of viewers' trust to air this pseudoscientific nonsense produced by an AIDS denialist with NO expertise in biotechnology or agriculture. This program presents falsified and retracted claims as fact, misrepresents the credentials of so-called experts, and profits from blatant fearmongering. It is no coincidence that "experts" such as Gary Null, Vandana Shiva, Joseph Mercola, etc. rile up unfounded fears and then profit exorbitantly from speakers fees and "natural cures" targeted at those same fears. It is true that the understanding the methods, challenges, and goals of biotechnology and agriculture are critically important to making decisions that will effect the future of our society. Any technology can be used responsibly or irresponsibly, and has the potential for unintended consequences. It would be far more valuable for PBS to air programs which present verifiable facts and offer rigorous analysis, so that viewers are equipped to evaluate claims of those who have financial interests in any side of these issues. Airing propaganda is abusive to viewers who seek information and education from a credible source. I urge executives at CPTV to take a long look at their own backgrounds and biases, and consult experts in relevant fields (whose contact information is readily available from state universities) before sponsoring inflammatory claims.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you so much for watching CPT12 and for writing in.
I let Gary know of your concerns and here is his reply:
 
From Gary Null, Ph.D. 2/17/15
“Let this viewer give the specific statements that they find objectionable. We have independent experts preview all of my documentaries . If she can show me a mistake I will correct it. I lose tens of thousands of dollars on every documentary/. I do not charge P.B.S. or any other venue. We put this film on the internet for free. I spent more than two thousand hours of research and read every article on the safety of gmo’s. The pro gmo advocates spent tens of millions of dollars to convince people that they are safe. I have spent nearly 50 years as a social activist…never was paid a penny to lecture or testify or broadcast on any of the documentaries. We have more independent science now than at the time the film was released and it shows that gmo’s are even worse that the film projects. Clarence Darrow said “I do not pretend to know what many ignorant men are sure of””.
 
I have also attached a copy of Gary’s CV updated in Dec 2013. Please excuse I need an update - he has written at least three new books on nutrition since then as well as produced two award-winning investigative documentaries.
 
Also please find attached, a 6 page excerpt of a list of my on-going research on the topic of GMO’s since 2007.And here is a link to the research presented by Right To Know Colorado who is behind Prop 105 and pushing for mandatory GMO labeling. http://www.righttoknowcolorado.org/resources
 
CPT12 presents information and content not widely seen in main steam media. Our research shows that close to 40% of Americans have questions about the safety of GMO’s. My research has not come up with any clinical trials based on human consumption. As an allergic kid myself, I began to pay attention to food labels and how preservatives were wrecking havoc with my immune system. I have also contacted Monsanto three different times inviting them to do an interview or come to the CPT12 studios. We have only received a reply – no conversation:
 
STATEMENT ISSUED BY MONSANTO TO CPT12
 
Monsanto is 100 percent focused on agriculture and our business succeeds when farmers find our products offer them value on their farms. Because Monsanto is a leader in biotechnology, our company and products are often the subject of activist campaigns which are not always balanced or accurate. We provide Monsanto’s position and perspective on a wide range of issues at www.monsanto.com.
 
Are you aware of how much money was spent in Colorado pushing back on GMO labeling? What is there to hide? https://www.google.com/search?q=money+spent+for+pro+gmo+lableing+in+colorado&rls=com.microsoft:en-us&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&startIndex=&startPage=1&gws_rd=ssl
 
With sky rocking levels of obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease in the US, I hope people will be empowered with access to information and will do their own research and support discussion, critic and transparency for information concerning the health and welfare of people.
 
Thank you for asking questions and taking the time to write in.

David Shomper's Attempt To Report A Typographical Error
Posted: February 9, 2015 by Loyal Viewer
Program: Manor of Speaking (5 comments)
David Shomper is quite correct about the typo he attempted to report on 27 January 2015. He was referring to the "Next" Station ID/Splash Screen that comes up moments before the program starts. The title of the show is correctly "Manor of Speaking" yet the accompanying NEXT screen incorrectly announces "Manner of Speaking" (not "The Manners of Downton Abbey" Masterpiece Special). A similar thing has been occurring with the NEXT screens for WordGirl, it has been announcing "European Christmas Markets" instead of "WordGirl" for the last several months.

MHz Worldview 12.3
Posted: February 7, 2015 by Carol Caniglia
Last year channel 12.3 dropped off my DirecTV channels for our area. I have greatly missed the International mystery programs that came through MHz Worldview. I thought at first that there might be some problem, but still it hasn't returned. When I checked on your website, I noticed that Comcast carries the channel in the Basalt/Carbondale area, but not Dish or DirecTV. Is this because of a dispute with them and the channel will return soon? Or is this a permanent situation? If it's permanent, Is there somewhere else I can go to get the MHz Worldview feed? Those International mystery shows are far superior to any mystery available through regular US channels. It will be a shame not to get them anymore. Carol Caniglia Carbondale, CO
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  In October of 2014 Colorado Public Television upgraded it’s signal to high definition.  DirecTV has a policy that only allows 2 of our standard definitions or one high definition channel to be carried on their system.  As you already know you can get 12.1 now HD on your DirecTV service, but they dropped the 12.2 MHz on October 15th, 2014.
 
Here are a few options to get the Megahertz channel:
 
  • Watch it live on our website.  You can stream your favorite MHz programs at the same time you would normally watch them on TV.
 
  • Stream MHz on your iPhone, iPad, Roku, MobiTV, AudioNow, Google TV, and Android devices
 
  • Add an antenna(if you live in our broadcast area) If you are interested in a professional antenna installation or just antenna advice, you can receive a free initial consult and advice from a local installation company, FREETV.  If you just need to tweak your existing antenna, check out some tips from the CPT12 engineers, or contact CPT-12 for over-the-air signal assistance at 303-296-1212.
 
  • MHz programming is available at no cost from DirecTV.  It is part of a ‘world direct package’.  It does require a second, larger satellite dish to pull in the several free stations.  There is a modest $20.00 fee for dish handling, but no installation fee or monthly subscription cost.  The number is 1-800-378-3309.  To clarify, this second dish is normally for those wishing programming in foreign languages for a fee.  The several ‘public interest channels’ (like MHz) are free.  There is CCTV news from China, CCTV in English, and a Philippine channel.
 
I hope I answered your questions.
 
All the Best,

cherry creek school endangers 5 yr old
Posted: February 3, 2015 by Name Withheld
If your station is interested...a school in cherry creek put my son in great great danger yesterday. 3 staff members, one of which I have written proof they were informed to put him in after school care, misplaced my 5 year old child. They put him on a bus without contacting anyone, the bus driver then dropped my 5 year old son ALONE in front of our apartment complex with absolutely no communication and allowed my 5 year old son to walk alone in the dtc area. I've been informed cherry creek bus drivers are not to allow kindergarteners off the bus without adult supervision. Yet this neglectful bus driver put my son's life in danger. There are more details to the story, but I feel children are in danger in this elementary school. His father and I are afraid to send him back to school due to the apparent inability to keep the kids safe that are supposed to be cared for by these people. ..we trust our kids with them daily. Never in my life would expect to have to fear for my child's life at one of the supposed best schools in colorado.

CPT12 Response:
Unfortunately Austin City Limits allows very limited program releases and I see that we have used the allowable releases for Eric Church for this year.  We can air it only once more in each of the next 2 years.
 
We have aired Live from the Artist’s Den : Zac Brown Band twice already this year however, the program rights are not as stringent so it may be possible that it could air again.
 
Your  best bet in both cases is to keep an eye on our website from time-to-time for updates.

Police Shooting
Posted: February 1, 2015 by Stan Morton
Program: Colorado Inside Out (12 comments)
I am disgusted with media coverage of the shooting of a person in a stolen vehicle with a very long record of crime in a very short life. Everyone there in the news media and especially Channel 12 seems to want to sweep this under the rug. Credible? I think not. Balanced coverage of any event is seldom if ever a disposition of Channel 12. However, I agree with an investigation of the actions of ALL persons involved in the incident. The parents, calling for a federal investigation, want us to believe that their child, with a criminal record, was simply a misguided young person. Their parenting is suspect at best. She was in fact a person trying to escape police arrest for driving a stolen car. The witnesses in the car must have known the driver was inclined to escape since they were riding in a stolen vehicle. She had done it before. All in the stolen vehicle are involved in the crime of auto theft and should be investigated as well. At least Mr. Dezutti's panel makes no pretense. They are truly liberally transparent.

OUTNUMBERED
Posted: January 31, 2015 by Sandy Jameson
Program: Colorado Inside Out (12 comments)
Why is it that you still get away with stacking the deck against conservatives and anyone who disagrees with the leftwing agenda? So, last night we had Susan Greene, liberal; Penfield Tate, Democrat, Patricia Calhoun, liberal and the moderator too. David Kopel is incredibly bright but is ALWAYS outnumbered. All three liberal panelists spoke in support of the most intrusive, freedom robbing health care debacle forced on the American people. Poll after poll shows the people HATE it and still channel 12 has to make sure that people like Kopel are a voice in the wilderness. You guys claim to care about fairness but that's just a ruse. You're about pushing your agenda on people who want to be left alone. Until you have TWO! Count 'em TWO conservatives vs. TWO liberals, your program will be a sham.
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you very much for your note and comment. We always appreciate hearing from our viewers, even when they have a problem with what they are watching.
 
Over our 23 years, Colorado Inside Out has always strived to have a panel that reflects diversity in many different aspects. Be it progressive, conservative, gender, ethnic or professional experience, we like bringing people from many different backgrounds to the program.
 
Because of that policy, we often have different episodes with various balances.
 
As you point out, last week we had both Penfield Tate and Susan Greene, along with David and Patty. Pen was a Democratic lawmaker and Susan is the editor of Colorado Independent.com, so they will bring those experiences with them to the panel.
 
But last week, our panel included Eric Sondermann and Dan Haley. Dan currently works for a conservative public policy firm and Eric tends to agree with David on various issues, although perhaps not with the same arguments.
 
And next week, it will be different again.
 
My point is that bringing balance to a program isn’t achieved in every episode, but is achieved over the long haul.  We aren’t interested in simply providing and equal number of “conservative” and “progressive “ viewpoints. While that may seem balanced in one way, it’s also a very limited way to look at a diverse pool of panelists.
 
I hope you will continue to watch Colorado Inside Out and see what I mean over the long haul. And by all means, let us know what you think, as we always try to do what we do better.
 
Thank you for watching and supporting Colorado Public Television.

"Power to the People" is shameless fracking PR
Posted: January 28, 2015 by Name Withheld
Program: Power to the People with Johan Norberg (3 comments)
The show spent a decent amount of time on a reasonably balanced examination of the pros and cons, benefits and challenges, of various energy sources. Then it veered from that template, and devolved in its last twenty minutes into a shameless plug for fracking. In hindsight, it was clear that the agenda was set in advance. The whole show was a script to lay out fracking as the answer to our problems, as a solution without downside. I see now that it was produced by "Free to Choose," a Randian libertarian group. Nice. You can always count on them to celebrate some unicorn or another. How deep do we need to drill to find energy companies at core of that outfit? I was planning on challenging the show's premise - the claim that the world will invariably demand more energy in the future, and so the only answer is to meet that demand by providing yet more energy - because that simplistic and defeatist notion precludes the possibility of using less energy through efficiency and changes in behavior. However, upon realizing that the show was itself simply an industry PR piece for fracking, the entire show ought to be tossed in the trash, faulty premise, shameless propaganda, and all.
CPT12 Response:

Thanks for your comments.
I have to say I agree with you.  It does not appear to pass journalistic integrity standards, and the producers have somehow gotten through the hoops at one of the top 3 media distributors across the PBS system.
 
I am pulling this documentary from all future airings.
 
Thank you for your insights.

Re Channel 12-2
Posted: January 25, 2015 by Nell Browning
Why did you drop the mystery and drama programs on this Channel. They were GREAT! even with subtitles - you don't have much to offer in the lineup now so why not bring them back??
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  Correct me if I am wrong, but you have Direct TV.  If so, you may not know that Direct TV dropped our 12.2 station.  We went to High Definition on 12.2.  Direct TV have a policy that they will only allow one HD. 
 
There are some options to receiving the International Mysteries.  If you have a computer you can watched them online on our website.  Just go to www.cpt12.org and click on ‘watch online’ then go to Worldview MHz.  Another way to receive this channel is to get a converter box to receive Over-the-Air reception with an antenna.  Or you can contact DirecTV at 1-800-378-3309 or 1-800-530-5000 and ask for their World Direct Package to request a second dish.  There is a $20.00 one-time charge for the second dish, which is required in order to receive the World Direct Package.  This package allows DirecTV customers to receive a number of free foreign language and foreign news services channels in English.  Please note that the World Direct Package offers pay-channel options as well.  Viewers do not need to subscribe to these additional pay-channels in order to receive MHz Worldview on the second dish.
 
If you have additional questions or if we can be of further assistance you can contact us at 303-296-1212 from M-F from9-5 p.m.

Program: Jewel in the Crown; The (6 comments)
Thanks so much for re-broadcasting the 1980's Jewel in the Crown 14-part TV series. I was just thinking about this series the other day after I saw the current movie "The Imitation Game" that had Charles Dance as a main character. Right away I thought of his old role as Sgt.Guy Perron in Jewel in the Crown and wished that I could again see this great TV series about the British Raj in India. I was always wondering why PBS hasn't re-broadcasted it. Thanks for hearing my wish. I hope you continue to show the other episodes at 7pm. I didn't catch part 1 when you broadcasted it at midnight. Any chance of a re-run of that episode for those that missed it? Also, thanks for MHz international programs on Ch 12-3. Now that I have learned the technique of speed reading subtitles, I really enjoy the programs. As well, in the process, I am learning 5 European languages.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for your email.
I checked the schedule and we do not have  Part 1 of Jewel in The Crown scheduled to reair. After a quick Google search, I found it is available for streaming for free (but with commercials) through Amazon. You may be able to find it through other streaming services.

Program: 11th Hour, The (3 comments)
Wow! As I was preparing to go to work last night, I tuned in to CPT 12 expecting to see Bill Moyers and, frankly, was disappointed to see another program taking the place of Moyers & Co. That disappointment disappeared almost immediately as I began to listen to Russell Means speak. I stood there, transfixed, for the entire program. I must have a DVD of that episode. The only drawback to the experience was my own realization that the very people who would most benefit from what Means had to say, to perhaps loosen a bit their rigid ethnocentrism, are the same people who wouldn't trouble themselves to listen or, if they did, would do their best to discount and dismiss what he has to say to us. I, for one, found it incredibly uplifting and inspiring. Thank you ever so much, Russell Means.

Bring back Body Electric!
Posted: January 17, 2015 by Name Withheld
Program: Body Electric (4 comments)
I was extremely disappointed when you removed Body Electric as I have been doing this workout 6 days a week for the last 15 years. At first you replaced the Sunday timeslot with Allaire Back fitness which I tried and Body Electric does more for my back than the new program. Margaret Richards has always been ahead of her time, has the most unique workout and has been a staple of Public television stations across the country. Now, as of January 1, 2015, you have removed her completely. What did you replace her with?! Another dime a dozen Yoga show. The line up starts with Priscilla's Yoga, now the new Happy Yoga sitting in a chair which I find very boring and doesn't deserve to be called a workout (you already have Sit and be Fit so why another), followed by at least 2 more Yoga variations. Why have 5 Yoga shows in a row? Why have that many at all?! Give your viewers some options. Body Electric has 20 years worth of shows that could be aired and she's working on making more. It is the best variation that offers options for all fitness levels and has the best warm up, a mix of Yoga, Pilates, and light weight lifting, and a cool down. Unless you have plans to bring her back, you have lost a 6 day/week viewer/supporter.

Speakeasy--Interview Roger Waters
Posted: January 13, 2015 by Mason Morgan
Program: Speakeasy (1 comment)
The controversy which surrounds the work of Roger Waters is substantial. And one must evaluate his words, presented with exceptional clarity and force in this interview, against the broad historical background. Waters frames himself in the context of his grandfather's death and that of his father. No doubt, unzipping the historical facts of these two events is an immense challenge. He described that an infant, we now know, takes complete ownership of events as though the child is the cause, for the child is a world unto itself, the cause of all that happens. The implication is that Roger, the man, is forged by coming to grips with these two deaths, one in the great war on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, and the other, only recently detailed in a remarkable coincidence by a man who took part in the Battle of Anzio during WWII. And his work as an artist finds it's ground forged from the ghosts of these men. A compelling interview.

The two virtuoso musicians played a dazzling 12-song set in the century-old museum's Sorolla Gallery, surrounded by the fourteen paintings that make up Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida's masterwork "Vision of Spain," a celebration of the country's diverse customs. It was a breathtaking setting for Rodrigo y Gabriela's unique fusion of musical genres, a mix of melodic beauty and percussive fury which drove the 300 invited guests into clapping, stomping glee.

Bill Moyers' show
Posted: January 8, 2015 by Name Withheld
Hi. Last night the schedule listed Moyers' and Company as being on at 8pm. A show on foreign affairs was on instead. I know you broadcast the show on Friday nights at 9, but that is too late for me (gets me too revved up). And you used to re-broadcast it at other times during the week, but I haven't seen that occur lately. I miss the show, and would like to know what other times you plan on broadcasting it. Thanks, Judith
CPT12 Response:
You may have missed some of our announcements that Bill Moyers has retired (again).  He wasn’t successful at retiring the first time so who knows, maybe he will change his mind again?  For now at least he is retired.
 
We all miss him!

Program: Colorado Inside Out (12 comments)
Patricia Calhoun says on Dec. 26th that if there were someway to stop the campaign's being all about what my dad used to say, "that all mighty dollar," she would be all for it. Well good news Patricia there is a Green Party that is growing and they believe that there candidates should not take funding from Corporations. Penfield Tate III! Said there weren't enough Democrats turning out to vote in Colorado. I think that is true, but there is a reason; the reason is that at a national level both parties were doing many of the same things. Obama & both senators signed the NDAA, they both seem to be for the Keystone XL, fracking, they haven't really come out against cleared hostages being released from Guantanamo AFTER 13 years, longer than the Nazi camps, the drones, continued war, immigration policies to help those southern Americans, and other issues. It isn't what they say, but what they have done. I am so glad to see Udall stand up now for those innocent people tortured. Surely the US should be concerned about those kidnapped and tortured all over the world like the German, the father of a British family, the Australian, and many from all over the continent of Asia now in Guantanamo and Were tortured in lack sites with so much secrecy. Thank you Udall for standing now to tell the Senate and the public of the tortured and murdered by the CIA. I haven't seen any other Democrat senators do this, the right thing. I hope he and other senators reguire accountability the same way anyone would be put on trial for kidnapping, torture and murder in the US. I see Germany does have a law suit started and I'm not sure if it is the individual or the country. I do believe at least ine of the father's of an Asian you g man tried to bring a law suit. They should continue to release both the cleared hostages held in Guantanamo and the total information or memos to the public. How can a government be for and by the people if they are not allowed to know what is going on. There was a time when we had to say the calvary could not shoot Native Americans, Southerners can not lynch African Americans, Service men could not shoot whole villages of people in the Mei Li massacre and today we need to say it is not open season to imprison, drone, torture, bomb or anything else without charges and a fair unbiased trial, even then we need a civilization that is not so sedistic that they torture and in any way can keep it secret. I thought one of the soeakers, David Kobel, who likes to spread a negitive comments without particularly giving detailed reasons why. An example of this is how he speaks about the mayor of Denver. I almost thought for the first time he wasn't going to spread a bunch of demanizing when he suggested there were some real challenges in investing in the Denver Colisium, but then he added a negitve statement about the Denver mayor. Maybe there is good reason, but I think it is a poor professional presentation to not have reasons and details to back up the statements made about a professional.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
I have forwarded your comments to the producer and host of Colorado Inside Out, Dominic Dezzutti. He will pass your comments on to Ms. Calhoun, Mr. Tate and Mr. Kopel.

Link fo Italy's Mountain Mysteries
Posted: January 5, 2015 by William Owens
Program: Italy's Mystery Mountains (1 comment)
To Whom It May Concern: I sent the URL to the page on your website about your recent program on Italy's Mystery Mountains to a friend in Italy. The link I sent is: http://www.cpt12.org/tv_schedule/program_details.cfm?series_id=89180680 My Italian friend replied that, "The link about Tuscany is not possible to see." I think that perhaps something was lost in her translation to English. So, can you tell me if some one from Italy can see the same page on the web that we can see here when this URL is used? On the other hand, she may have been able to see the page as I see it here, but she couldn't see a link to the video of the program. Since I can't see a link to a video of the program either, I suspect that your website doesn't enable some one to view the program through a link on your website. Is this true? Or, is it possible to view this program through the internet in Italy? If so, how? Thank you, William Owens Centennial, CO
CPT12 Response:
 Thanks for your enquiry. Our web pages should be visible anywhere in the world.
 
I think you are right that your friend can see the page, but not a video. That particular program does not have an official online video that I know of, but it looks like its been uploaded to youtube. It can also be purchased through shoppbs.
 
For future reference, our online videos can be found at video.cpt12.org. I believe the videos posted by us (CPT12) such as Colorado Inside Out and Sounds on 29th are available everywhere, but videos posted by many of the national program producers (like Masterpiece) are probably geo-blocked in other countries due to rights agreements.
 
I hope this helps. Thanks for watching CPT12!

High Definition!
Posted: January 3, 2015 by Robert Thurlow
After all this time since the digital transition, I noticed that "Worriker: Turks & Caicos" was presented in high definition tonight, and it looked great. I think that I have accidentally bumped into HD programming in the last couple of months, but I don't think I ever saw anything about it in the station e-mails. I also don't see HD programs marked off in the program guide. I will watch more on CPT12 if it's in HD, and since I use a Tivo, I would want to know ahead of time. How can I know what shows are likely to be available in HD, realizing that older episodes may not be? Thanks, Rob T

Program: Free or Equal: A Personal View by John Norberg (1 comment)
I notice that all of the severe detractors of this program detailing how capitalism not only helps the very rich, and the successful business owner, but also helps the working man and even the poor by driving down prices on things like cell phones and personal computers are all typing their diatribes of how evil capitalism is on their laptops and ipads that cost less than half of what they cost even 5 years ago, caused by the forces of...wait for it, capitalism. Thank you channel 12, for this refreshing program, I enjoyed it a lot.

Hi. PLEASE READ: For black history month PLEASE play the series "Roots" and especially the second series, about post reconstruction life for an African American family. Given the current theme of blacks being especially targeted by law enforcement, it would be an ENORMOUS PUBLIC SERVICE to play this series. As you know, it is based on Alex Haley's 'roots', going back to kunta kinte being enslaved and brought to America. ALSO, there are wonderful films concerning the civil rights movement. One especially is from the FRONTLINE series....it is called Nashville. It recounts the training that the student protesters underwent before the sit-ins in the south.

Will the series be run again? I have been trying to describe the quality and beauty of the show I saw to my husband, but hope we can view the entire series to prove I'm not easily obsessed. I keep wishing this quality were not the exception but the rule on television. Thank you for your commitment to providing this excellent series.

Thank you for airing this thought-provoking program! I'm grateful that at least one of our PBS stations in Denver has the courage to air such a progressive and controversial viewpoint! It's about time we began looking at Christ's message of love and not using the words of the Bible as an excuse for exclusion and hatred. Jesus was a JEW - where would we be if his message excluded any who were not of Jewish descent?

Posted: December 30, 2014 by Name Withheld
This show was on 12-3 at 9-9:30 AM, 0n 12/30/2014. I stopped at it because of a picture of food. It featured a very large man/chef named Herme (I think). He was speaking in French. There was English printed across the bottom. Unfortunately he was wearing a white shirt and his coat was open. The English subtitles (I think you call them?)were in white too. There was no way to figure out the subtitles when the last 1/2 was in white on white. The subtitles seemed to have a very slight black border but it was not sufficient to make it out against the whit background. Additionally right below the subtitles was a fast crawl giving info/news of Russia. Toward the end of the show the subtitles got even smalleer and were not readable. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Suggestion!! If the the people or background are not contrasting, put the subtitles in a crawl at the bottom of the picture where the russian news was during this program.. ------------------------------------------------------------------ I was trained in speed reading, so i have an edge, but still could not keep up with the subtitles. I do not speak or read French. This is not an isolated occurence on 6 or 12. Some times there is a little more contrast but still not readable so as to keep up with the speech. 2 examples #1---Over the past weekend or maybe yesterday there was a program in a foreign language. C-12 prints the show names in all caps in the language, #2---I have also happened on shows where the program and subtitles are both in spanish. Between the strang language being spoken and the fast subtitles I couldn't keep up with it either. I do not understand why 12 would accept a show in another language without making sure it is viewable to the audience. C-12 should be more careful in picking programs. That is to say making sure the subtitles are att a speed and sizemaking sure those details work very well and not just they are there. Hoping C-12 willdo a better job.

Posted: December 28, 2014 by Bob May
Dear CPT12, I greatly appreciate your courage to provide alternative perspectives on national issues. We see RMTV playing it safe more and more these days. This isn't just a thank you letter, however. This also is a suggestion for you to toot your own horn more! Last night, my good friend in Lyons called me to tell me to turn on your channel to see an Irish songstress, Loreena McKennitt, whom she loves (at least really enjoys). So I turned on the TV to channel 12 but it wasn't McKennitt; it was a rock band (that I've seen before and liked). I found the local Lyons Communications TV provider and saw that CPT12-2 is carried! This led me to Comcast's CPT+ and CPTWV. Now I have even more challenges to decide what to watch. I am excited about incorporating World View into my TV viewing. All this is to suggest that you mention + and WV on CPT12, with some examples. I'll bet more people will write to thank you and contribute. Happy Holidays! Bob May, Denver

I'm surprised that you are still in business and that you still have a job. Land of the free?

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (23 comments)
Hi! I have three big dogs I have been training for three months using Don Sullivan's training methods. His program works! It makes sense. Dogs are not people, their animals and they need proper leadership and guidance to become the best friends they can be to humans, and Don has found a way to have our dogs not only love us, but also respect us as well. I love this program and my dogs are obeying me when they never did before. People are impressed with my dogs training, esp. when I take my six month old and 70lb German Shepherd puppy to the vet, behaving very nicely. I even had an opportunity to guide another person with this program because she didn't know how to train her German Shepherd to obey and respect her. It's just a wonderful training program that makes our dogs love and respect us even more than before. Thank you Don Sullivan for making a way for dogs to live happier, calmer lives! Sarah

Sometimes the program producers pull their programs from the network such as what happened to Al Jazeera English. Sometimes there are licensing issues such as what happened to  Australian Rules Football. Occasionally they will plug in programming and preempt other shows  when a program seems particularly timely. MHz  did that after the Japan tsunami and again with the annexation of Crimea.
We know scheduling changes can be frustrating to viewers. I know I have become very fond of some of the programs on 12.3.

You have been cutting RT more and more for the 2 1/2 years I have been watching. Other than Democracy Now, RT is the only independent news source on antenna TV. Please restore it. Please send this feedback to MHz if and as necessary. Also, way too much Montalbano. I am sick of it. Please more Scandinavian mystery. Fog and Crimes is also good. Thanks, Sandy Lemberg

Thank you for your email.
For the record, RT News is not an independent news source. According to Wikipedia, RT News “… is a Russian state-funded cable and satellite television channel directed to audiences outside of the Russian Federation.”
The  MHz  worldview channel airs news sources from all over the world including Japan, China,Taiwan, France, Germany, Ukraine,Ireland, Vietnam and Kazakhstan. Many of these programs  are state sponsored.
CPT 12.3 is a pass-through channel of  MHz Worldview. Colorado Public Television  does not have any control of what they air or when. We take their programming “as is” off the internet and broadcast it to our viewers.
Any comments or feedback regarding scheduling or programming preferences  on 12.3 should be sent directly to  MHz Worldview through the link below.

Just wanted to thank you for saving our home by airing this show. we lost 3 of our long time furry family members last year and it was devastating. We recently add two American Bulldog puppies and boy I forgot what it was like to have wild and crazy little balls of energy tearing up my home. As much as I tried, it fell on deaf ears. I bought Don's system one night after losing my 5th pair of expensive shoes! It was such an easy and fast training program. required very little correction (that did not hurt or injure my pups)and in 10 minutes I had them walking beside me on walks. He makes so much sense and the collars are so much easier than a pinch collar or jerking them down the street with regular collar. There is no pulling at all. They play with their toys only and stay in their yard. Thank you and Don for bringing this show into our homes! God Bless you and Happy Holidays!

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (23 comments)
I'll first say that people need to realize that dogs are not human. I've never seen another dog become pack leader by bringing food or treats to their pack members. In fact, it's just the opposite. Dogs use an increasing scale of consequences to gain leadership. Don's techniques mimic this scale of correction and are always firm enough for the dogs personality but never firm enough to hurt them or be considered "abuse". To think dogs will cease their unwanted behaviors without consequences is like telling a bank robber that they'll never get caught but they still need to get a job instead of stealing. Ha... I'd like to see that conversation! I can't even begin to say how many people need Don's help. He is often criticized for his techniques despite the tens of thousands of people and pets he has saved. His results are unmatchable. I have a Dalmatian and a Shiba Inu. Both of which would be facing euthanasia if I were using ANY other system. Within the first night of using his techniques, I knew our dogs would become the perfect off leash companions. I am 100% supportive that Don's techniques are in absolutely no way cruel or abusive. I looked for many other so called "trainers" who use "positive" techniques. I can guarantee you Don's techniques provide a more positive experience throughout the dogs life than any other system. All of his techniques are temporary. After training is over you are left with a dog you can trust for the rest of your life. For someone to discredit this amazing canine lover... it makes me sick. You have no idea how many people (including "professional" dog trainers) who need his help. It's sad to punish a viewing audience of a great program which they desperately need for the ignorance of a few "animal lovers". These despicable people would be the first ones who would wish to see criminals brought to justice in a "negative" way for breaking the law. I'd hate to see a world without consequences. And that's what these people are protesting against. If viewers aren't willing to donate money to a great cause because they disagree with concepts they don't understand, they need to change the channel and spend their money elsewhere. They need to swallow their ego and let the dog owner decide who's system is best for them.

The System Is NOT Based On Fear and Cruelty
Posted: December 18, 2014 by Jeff Leavitt
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (23 comments)
In 2009 I adopted a Labradoodle who was estimated to be six months old at the time. After several months of trying to determine how I would train her (and she did need it), I found Don Sullivan’s equipment and methods. It was truly amazing to see how Fiona (her name comes from the TV show, Burn Notice, not the movie, Shrek :-) was transformed into an obedient, furry friend. She was and is not terrified of the equipment, the training, or me. Have you seen the videos of Don Sullivan with Judah and Izzy? They are not terrified of Mr. Sullivan. To the contrary, they look quite happy and content. After having great success with Fiona, and having enjoyed the process of training so much, I decided to start Prairie Path Dog Training on a part-time basis. I use Don Sullivan’s dog training equipment and methods, and it works. Because of the successes and my love for dogs, I am now starting a full-time business in Chattanooga – Blue Bridge Dog Training. The results of Don Sullivan’s dog training system, with no negative affects to the trainees can be clearly seen in two videos I created for my business. The first one is of Kora, a Shepherd mix, who is fearful and sensitive. She was adopted with those traits and has made tremendous progress. The video demonstrates some basic and more advanced commands, and she is certainly not afraid of me. She had ample opportunity to run away during the video, if this was the case… View it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=R44F8WSz8bs The other video is of both Kora and Fiona, demonstrating the results of boundary training, again having used Don Sullivan’s system. They are happy dogs, just having fun in the back yard – no fence in the back or north side, no tether. View it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th10PyLOlUE&list=UUAxigxsSR-Kg3yWdB4LMR5g Let me address some of the rather vitriolic comments posted by those who hail from the “positive reinforcement only” or “force free” community. I have seen it all before in another venue of “professional” dog trainers – a LinkedIn group. The approach is this: use words like torture, cruel, inhumane, barbaric, outdated, old school, and on and on. And that rhetoric, on its own merits, wins the argument, at least in the mind of the one holding that view. I posted this question, “Why is the "positive reinforcement only" community so negative with others who do not follow lock-step? Is there possibly a group of "other trainers" that use correction without being abusive?” Not one of the trainers participating in the discussion (655 comments) could explain why the methodology I used did not create a fearful and aggressive dog, as they always claim will occur – NOT ONE. That was in December of 2012, and Fiona is still not fearful or aggressive. I am a real person with a real story about real success, without abuse and cruelty. Just because you believe and state a dog is terrified, does not make it so. I am open to further discussion on the subject, and my contact information can be found at www.bluebridgedogtraining.com And just for the record, I am not paid by Don Sullivan, and I do not receive a discount or commission on his products. Merry Christmas!

Don Sullivan's training methods WORK

Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (23 comments)
Thank you for making Don Sullivan's training system available to so many people. My dogs were impossible to walk together on leash. I went on to YouTube to look for training methods and happened upon Don's methods via personal testimonials. I then checked reviews on Amazon. I was sold. The negative reviews were from people who never tried his system! So I discounted them and ordered his collar and DVDs and started right away. And now I have dogs that I can walk in a calm and relaxed manner. And they lie down on command and no more overwhelming visitors at the door. Don Sullivan is making it possible for people like me to train our dogs to be great members of our family.

A Response From Don Sullivan,
Posted: December 17, 2014 by Don Sullivan
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (23 comments)
Hi everyone. This is Don Sullivan, and I have been asked to post a message by my business manager. Normally I don't say too much as I like to let people's real life experiences with my system speak for themselves. However, for the sake of all the dogs out there that are suffering, and for the sake of all the unknowing dog owners out there that are still struggling after having tried (and spent) so much, I will say my piece just this once. Readers, please judge for yourselves: Firstly, those who have posted negative comments on this page seem to be completely missing the point. PBS does a wonderful and admirable job of bringing many programs to people in order to help them. And, there are myriad exasperated dog owners and miserable dogs out there that are, indeed, in desparate need of help. If you don't feel that my program holds any value for you, or even if you completely disagree with what I share and demonstrate, then simply don't watch the show. But, I appeal to you to contain your emotions and personal opinions; don't ruin it for others who could very much benefit from my system. Let PBS do their job and offer something of value to those who truly welcome it. Secondly, doubters only have to Google my personal name, my moniker (DogFather), or my system (Perfect Dog system) and they find a multitude of people whose lives have been completely turned around (and that is no exaggeration) because they somehow came across my training methods. Read the language that THESE people use when describing the results they achieved (on their own, without me even being there in person, from a $60 training system!) and it truly brings tears to your eyes!!! In many cases, dogs lives have been saved just in the nick of time as many owners were on the verge of having their dogs euthanized or given over to shelters (where most would have been killed in the end anyway because no-one would have wanted them). There will always be critics of most products and services whatever they are, however if you're going to post copies of negative reviews of a product or service then you should be fair enough to also share the positive ones. To help balance out the commentary on this page, below I have posted some that I found. These are completely legitimate, unsolicited customer reviews of my training system. Third, everyone who has posted a negative comment about my methods has completely overlooked the fact that half of my training DOES very much involve rewards (praise, affection, play, and exercise - the best kinds of rewards) which would be deemed as the positive reinforcement side of my training. This tells me that these posters are very much unfamiliar with my training system and are making unfair judgments based on the very little they've seen on TV. IF you've carefully watched the full five hours in my DVDs, thoroughly read through my comprehensive and critical guide that comes with my system, physically handled and properly tested my training tools and techniques in the 70+ ways that I discuss and demonstrate (with an open mind), and still have concerns or criticsim, then I am truly all ears. To anyone else, I say that you are operating on limited knowledge of me and the system that has been proven over and over to change lives. Many critics are being driven by emotion, and their unjustified outspokenness can create a stumbling block for dog owners that are desparately searching for answers. THESE poor people HAVE tried what the critics are spouting as the answer and the "only humane way" for all, and they are at their wit's end. And, let's not forget their poor dogs that currently live miserable existences on leashes, are plagued by aggression or separation anxiety, and look at the unbelievably free and joyous lives of dogs that have been trained using my system and ache for a dream life like that! If you have achieved results with whatever method you use then fine, but countless others have tried these things and their dogs just keep getting worse. The bottom line is that it's wrong of critics to object to a show being aired that provides valuable information for viewers, and to act as though their voices reflect the opinion of the majority; they do not. Finally, please also bear in mind that most critics are not comparing apples with apples. They truly need to see the fullness of my system to understand the kinds of results that I encourage every dog that they can achieve. I'm not just talking about getting a dog to lie down, sit, stay, and come. This is where many people's mindsets are at when they choose to criticize my training techniques. Let's look beyond human emotion and let's consider the real subject here: our dogs and the best kind of life that we can give them - a life centered on safety, praise, affection, fun, and complete freedom. This is what dogs all over the globe are experiencing because of my system. Just because certain critics disagree with how these dogs got to this point, does it make it wrong? Thank you for reading. Sincerely, Don Sullivan. HERE IS JUST A SMALL SELECTION OF LEGITIMATE CUSTOMER REVIEWS THAT CAN BE FOUND ONLINE: ??The Perfect Dog® Infomercial Configuration??? . Very pleased ?I was very pleased with this DVD. He explains and shows very clearly how to train a dog and correct unwanted behavior problems. There is nothing in this video that could be called abusive, in fact he very clearly states that the training method is firm but warns there is no excuse for abusing your dog. There is a distinct difference. You must be firm and consistent in order for the dog to understand that the human is in charge, then all other training is much easier. By no means are the animals in this DVD being abused. Listen and read and learn how to train a dog or puppy for their well-being and your enjoyment of dog ownership. As far as receiving and condition of the product, I purchased the DVD without the training aids and wish I had purchased the training collar. The product came much quicker than the estimated time, was packaged well, and was as described. Janice ?? . ??2 Disc Training DVD Set ??? . The videos have helped us to keep our dogs safe and well trained. I have suggested the videos to my friends at the dog parks. My wife loves the videos?.?? . ??The Perfect Dog® Max Results and Care Package??? . I felt justified!! ?I am no professional, just a dog lover who has had some great dogs over my life time so far. After viewing Don's CDs, I felt justified in how I have worked with my dogs over the years, learning from my own experiences and that was presented quite clearly by Don's instructions. Dogs want to please, but dogs also look to the "lead dog" for guidance. Most dog owners don't realize that they are not doing their dogs any favors by letting them get away with things with no discipline and training in place. Don's lessons are basically short, full of good technique, good advice, and you get a happy dog who trusts his owner. This training does not "break" a dog, it just develops the bond between you (the lead dog) and your pet. I've loved every dog I've owned, as each was different in termperament and personality, but all were loving and eager to please because they knew they were loved, and that included the discipline that each dog had regarding how to behave when out and about in public. . ??The Perfect Dog® Infomercial Configuration??? . Extremely Pleased? I ordered the systems, because even though I had fairly well managed dogs, I had persistent problems with my lab and cockapoo (mainly just spoiled)....the usual, barking at passing cars or trucks, ignoring certain commands, surfing the counter for food, etc. I bought the system and truthfully, I fixed these after 2-3 corrections as shown...and not very aggressive corrections, I might add. Do yourself a huge favor! If you are having dog issues, this will teach you to handle...and quickly. I have both dogs doing perfect, sit, down, stay, and come...everytime. This is with just four days of 15-20 minutes a day. I am now working on begging for food and down from a distance. The other thing the videos don't really mention, but I have found it to be true is this..."the dogs enjoy the training, because they like time spent with you." I have recommended to a friend from church and she is ordering...you should also. ?wbb?? . ??Command Collar® and Training Lines??? . Unbelievable Results?Fabulous!!! It is beyond belief how this collar works. And so quickly. I'd carry flyers to hand out if I could. I walk in our neighborhood park where there are other people walking their dogs and I'd love to carry flyers about the Command collar to give them. The DVD that comes with the collar is also very good. My dog is small (10 pounds) ) but with a very high pitched, screaming voice. The command collar let him know not to do that in a very short time. Amazing results for a problem I had coped with for a very long time. ?Schnicklefritz?? . ??The Perfect Dog® Infomercial Configuration??? . Great gift!? Bought this for my husband. He loves it and he said it has helped him with dog training. It came with cd and leash. ?jedi jen?? . ??The Perfect Dog® Infomercial Configuration??? . DogFather is an understatement?I first got this video when I got my first dog Rain; she was a German Shep. My husband was deployed and he said the only way I could keep her was if by time he got home I had her fully trained. I saw how the stores trained their dogs with treats and I was not to happy with that. I personally feel that if I do not give my children a "treat" or snack every time they do something correct I am not going to give my dog one! This video amazed me on the commerical when I saw the man go inside and leave his dog off the leash under a tree and he did not move, or when the woman was vaccuuming the floor and her dog remained still. I wanted this video for that alone. My dog was sooooo trained that I had police officers w

Highly Recommend Don's Training System
Posted: December 17, 2014 by Bo Potter
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (23 comments)
I have trained two dogs with Don's system and I would highly recommend it to any dog owner. My dogs live half the time on our 76 acre farm in Ohio and half the time at our place in La Crescenta, CA with no yard. Needless to say they love the farm and hate it in California. A trained dog is very important here in California because of the cars. Before I started using his system, if the dogs got out they were g-o-n-e gone. I would grab the doggie treats and leash and hope that they didn't get run over before I could get them. Now, if I leave the gate open they don't even leave the yard. They used to pull on the leash and drag me around. They don't do that anymore either. They both follow all of the commands I give them. When I give them the down command they lie down immediately and they stay there until I tell them they can get up. They won't stay there for an hour but unless I forget about them, they're there for as long as I want. The bottom line is that this is a great system and I don't have to worry about my dogs getting hit by a car any more. Thanks Don, you're a life saver. Bo

I was about to give up when someone suggested I try Dons training videos. I admit I was reluctant to believe it was going to work. I have a Shepard mix that I got from a shelter. He is very hard headed, territorial, and dog aggressive. Well I have a new dog!! Oh he is still hard headed haha...but I now have the tools to control him. He is 6 years old now and we go to the dog park and I have not had any trouble! We go hiking and not only is he off leash but I used Dons training for my coon hound and was warned that I woukd never be able to have her off leash without st least a shock collar. Well I don't use a shock collar and she is off leash more then she's on and I have full control over my pack!! Sometimes it's not just one method that works. Maybe a mix of methods. But I assure you without Don my Shepard mix woukd not be the happy dog he is today!!

I have a German Shepherd/Pitt mix named, Twinkie. Before using Don's method, my life seemed impossible, because Twinkie wanted to eat the cat and chew up the house. Since adopting her, I have had one problem after another with her behavior. Don's system showed me that her trouble is anxiety due to poor leadership. She is now great in public, heals on a lead, and is the beloved family member we always knew she could be. It works on even the most stubborn dogs!!

I purchased Don Sullivan's Perfect Dog System several years ago when my dogs were about 2 years old. Up until that moment they were uncontrollable on leashes. I tried several methods like stopping, as it was written if you stop, the dogs will too. Not true. I needed specific direction on how to control my dogs while enjoying them at the same time. Don's Perfect Dog system was the key. It taught me how to train my dogs and become a proper dog owner. If I ever get another puppy I will most certainly use Don's system again! Mary Ann Rojas.

Posted: December 17, 2014 by James Wilborn
I live in the south Evergreen area and view television via an antenna. We lost the RMPBS after the signal tower was relocated and the switch to digital. We were able to view PBS 12 however. About 2 weeks ago we seem to have lost that signal as well. Has something changed in the signal delivery/technology? JP Wilborn
Thanks

Don't Knock It Until You Try It!
Posted: December 14, 2014 by Jade Danko
Program: Train Your Dog Like a Pro (23 comments)
Regarding the original post about Don Sullivan and his Perfect Dog system on PBS: I've spent thousands of dollars with 'positive reinforcement dog trainers' and had to give my dog up after his aggression problem couldn't be fixed. I since met Don and watched him turn hundreds of problematic dogs into great dogs. He and his methods have saved thousands of dogs and created loving relationships between owners and their dogs. Most people who have negative things to say about Don's system haven't even tried it. It's sad that many opinions are not based on fact and that they then influence others. Millions of dogs are euthanized every year; if the methods of training that are espoused by many on this forum work so well, then why are so many dogs put in kennels mostly for bad or problematic behaviors? My current dog was trained with Don's methods and is the happiest, well behaved dog I have ever owned. People marvel at her personality and her obedience level. For anyone with doubts, I suggest watching his work and reading a variety of what other people who have used his methods have to say, not just on one forum. I find that people on Amazon.com are very upfront and honest in their reviews. Overall, the reviews are extremely positive. Don't knock it until you try it!

Names of Two Pundits Forgotten
Posted: December 13, 2014 by Erich von Dalkenshield
Two pundits whose names I've forgotten appeared on Denver television, I believe on Channel 12 but they could have appeared on Channels 2 or 6, too. A man and a woman about 65 years old each, they used to "face off" for about 5 minutes each taking the opposite side of an issue. I have forgotten their names and want to know. I think the man's last name was Anderson. Can you help me? Thank you very much. Erich
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  You are referring to the Head On program.  John Andrews and Susan Barnes-Gelt were the two pundits.   Susan Barnes-Gelt is still on the show but John Andrews is not.  Krista Kafer took his place.  It comes on at 6:57 p.m. on 12.1.

Hi, When will CPT show the new documentary on Admiral Rickover, "Rickover: The Birth of Nuclear Power"?
CPT12 Response:
It looks this program is being distributed by PBS.  We are a 25% PBS affiliate so unless they open up the rights we may not be airing this program.  The best thing to do is to keep an eye on our website at www.cpt12.org.  We are scheduled out through January so you may want to check our website in February.

Judge Mablean's Comments
Posted: December 8, 2014 by Name Withheld
I watched one of Judge Mablean's episodes earlier this month and was appalled at some of her comments. She cited an example of what she did with a boy who had a habit of biting others. In order to "cure" him of this habit, she bit him. No respected judge would ever engage in such behavior. Does Judge Mablean have any awareness that her statement gives adults permission to inflict potential harm and pain on children? In Colorado biting a child could be considered child abuse, and Judge Mablean should certainly know the laws around that! Judges are supposed to protect children, not abuse them. Judge Mablean is an embarrassment to the court system. She and her theatrics should be removed from Channel 12 if dignified programming is to be preserved.
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email but Colorado Public Television does not air Judge Mablean’s Divorce Court. I believe the Fox affiliate KDVR Channel 31 and KCDO Channel 3 and 649HD does.
I got to agree with you though. An adult authority figure biting a child is child abuse and does not belong on a public television station’s schedule.

Joan

Protests
Posted: December 6, 2014 by Tom Graham
Program: Colorado Inside Out (12 comments)
We were disappointed to hear Patty's comment on Friday Dec.5, that the Jefferson County students had a reason to demonstrate. Students were told that they would be "favorably looked upon" if they participated in the street demonstrations. The ostensible reason at that time was to support the teachers' sickouts. Those had been arranged by the teachers' union, which hired an organizer with money donated for that purpose from the State union. 44-48 union workers were sent from out-of-state to help. The reason given by the JCEA was a protest against changing the curricula. There never had been any change proposed or discussed. Board member Julie Williams had stated that there should be more positive content in history lessons. The disruptions had been planned a year in advance in order to start a recall to get back union control of the District for compensation reasons. Regarding curriculum changes, revisionist history dictated by the College Board has little information about WW II, George Washington, etc., but emphasizes the bad aspects of our history. We feel that there should be a balance with history of some of our heroes and aspects the great founding and protection against evils provided by the nation. Curriculum changes demanded by College Board are large with the hate-America message. Informed students want this.
GMO Seeds of Death

Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (11 comments)
I just turned this program on and in the first minute the only true thing I heard was the fact that Monsanto will pursue its patents. I would never donate to a station that would present this fiction as truth. I just heard the person begging for $$ that it's "a little controversial" well no crap. When you try to pass of baloney science as science, it should be controversial. I have no connection with Monsanto or any seedstock company. What I have done is analyzed GMO grain to PPB levels and find NO DIFFERENCE chemically or nutritionally to legacy grains. I guess next it'll be HFCS you're lieing about. The guy talking right now (1.42 PM) sounds like some guy that would be selling magnets to purify your water. For a station connected with a premier science university, you should be ashamed for pandering to unscientific beliefs such as this.

Misrepresentation of Colorado Latino Forum
Posted: December 3, 2014 by Lisa Calderon
I am the Co-Chair of the Colorado Latino Forum Denver Chapter and we are requesting a meeting with the producers of Colorado InsideOut and management of Colorado Public Television 12 about the misrepresentation of our Sept. 24th Public Safety forum. The fact that no one from your show even attended our forum, yet spoke as if they had first hand knowledge of what transpired by holding a "Post Game" show on September 26th titled "Colorado Latino Forum discusses Denver's Department of Safety" without even one Latino at the table displays a serious lapse in journalist integrity and cultural insensitivity. The lack of Latino representation on your show is another issue of contention we seek to address.

Misinformation regarding GMOs
Posted: November 30, 2014 by Davy Brown
The program you aired entitled something like "Seeds of Death: Lies about GMOs exposed..." was full of misinformation and clever distortions of the truth. Worse yet, you did not provide equal time for any opposing points of view. Your program was nothing more than leftist propaganda and should not be supported by any public funding whatsoever. But since you do receive funds handed to you against the will of millions of Americans I demand you air a show regarding the truth about crop production in America as reported by those who understand the value and need for producing wholesome and healthy food that is affordable and abundant; in short, you can't feed an expanding global population without GMOs. It is the responsible thing to do. One of your "experts" was completely clueless (or simply dishonest) stating that milk and refined foods are somehow deadly GMOs. Please tell me, what genetic material are you consuming when you consume milk, cheese, ice cream or bread?? Ever herd of teosinte? Can you eat it? Would we be able to feed ourselves without modified teosinte? If you or your viewers can not answer these basic questions than YOU should be ashamed of yourself and your network for exploiting the ignorance of your viewers. Teach them in truth and fairness, rather than trying to dupe the ignorant viewer and fleece the unwilling tax payers please try contributing positively to our great country like the hard working folks at Monsanto, Haliburton, Microsoft, or any number of local Christian Churches. Try to accept this truth: The fields of corn and veggies you see all over the state of Colorado are GMOs to one degree or another. They would not grow here if they weren't. Your local grocery stores would not have food in them much of the time if food couldn't be grown locally, compliments of your hard working American neighbors.

Posted: November 30, 2014 by C C
Program: Seeds of Death: Unveiling the Lies of GMOs (11 comments)
It should be criminal to air such shallow and non authoritative documentaries. This documentary is complete BS they cover no real facts and merely speculate of the possibility of GMO harm. They also leave out ALL of the benefits of GMO crops which far out way the negative aspects of GMO, which until proven otherwise remains at ZERO. Also fun food for thought; Most "real" farmers aren't authors on the side and the leading voice in this mess of non scientific rhetoric is the one and only Bruce Lipton the same guy that says he can control plants with his mind and the list of other guest speakers I wouldn't trust to walk my dog. As an adult you're free to believe what you want, but there are kids that watch these shows and don't have the tools that most adults have to verify fact from fiction, so please stop spreading this crap!

Don't you need our Donations? CORRECTION
Posted: November 29, 2014 by tom rutter
Re: my complaint about the difficulty in being able to donate this evening. I stand corrected. I just went back online and figured out how to donate and get the dvd of tonite's program. It was actually quite simple once I settled down and found the correct Donate button. All the choices were there. So, folks, I still think it bears some investigation as to why phone donors, at least at 8 pm saturday nite, had a very difficult time getting through..but I thank the CPT12 staff for the well designed online donation system you have in place...it does a good job of handling a whole lot of variables. Please pass the compliment along... Sincerely, Tom Rutter

CPT12-- Don't you need our donations???
Posted: November 29, 2014 by Tom Rutter
After watching this wonderful special program, I tried to donate but couldn't. I'm a sustaining member of CPT12, but intended on making an additional $120. donation to get the dvd and send a "well done!!" message for your continued great programming. Well, I dialed the 800-690-5234 call in number...they aoto-answered on behalf of Colorado CPT 12, and said our calls would be recorded and that all staff were busy taking calls from other members. I tried twice, and waited almost 15 minutes each time. No one ever picked up the phone. Now I'm online, trying to figure out how to make that donation and get a copy of the dvd...and i've given up on figuring out how to do that as well. We all make mistakes. But mistakes like this are too costly...to you the station, to us as donors and to the public who needs what CPT12 has to offer. I think someone needs to be held accountable for a mistake like this to be sure it doesn't happen again. Sincerely, Tom Rutter 720-366-6106
Closed Captioning
Posted: November 29, 2014 by Gerald George
My wife is severely hearing impaired, although not so much in her earlier years as now, but relies heavily on hearing aids. She remembers very well the songs and influence provided by P,P$M. I too have lost some hearing ability and depend a great deal on CC. Unfortunately, the just presented program did not comply with ADA requirements of closed captioning. We have intended to contribute to this great program but became very disappointed that we had an extremely difficult time understanding the discussions, songs and comments made by the family and friends of PP&M. The lack of CC has occurred on many of your programs and is very frustrating for any hearing impaired individual that might enjoy your offerings. Please explain why this has occurred and hopefully it will not be an issue for future programming. Gerald D. George

Hello, Mr. George,

Thank you for taking the time to write to us and tell us about the lack of captioning on 50 Years with Peter, Paul, and Mary.   
Why there were no captions on the version we aired is a mystery - there definitely should have been.  We are having the show re-edited for it’s air on Wednesday 12/3, night at 7pm.
               
I will be out of the office tomorrow, but will double check the captions before it goes to air Wednesday night.

Why do you not print your prime schedule for the month. as does KRMA Channel 6.
Posted: November 28, 2014 by Earl Stevens
In the subject I have said my say. Making available for home printing your monthly prime schedule would guarantee you greater audiences.

Time machine episodes
Posted: November 28, 2014 by Keith Caulkins
Program: Colorado Inside Out (12 comments)
I am a long time viewer and fan of your program. Each Friday I look forward to hearing the diverse opinions from your panel on many of the local issues affecting Denver and the state of Colorado. I am not a fan, though, of your time machine episodes. I really don't want to listen to your panel play acting on issues which occurred decades ago. It may be interesting from an historical viewpoint, but it is not what I tune in to see. I applaud you for your creativity and many people may find it amusing, but it is not what I turn in to see each week. I am disappointed each time you air one of these time machine episodes and I miss out on a substantive discussion of current issues.

Unfortunately, Death Comes to Pemberly Part 2 is not scheduled to be repeated on Colorado Public Television and is no longer available for streaming on the PBS video site.

Please let me know what time it will air or if its available to view on the website. Sincerely, James Orth

 Hmmm…we don’t have this program scheduled to air.  Our schedules are done through January.

European Journal When is it shown?
Posted: November 24, 2014 by Name Withheld
Program: Focus on Europe (3 comments)
I cannot find European Journal anywhere on Direct TV. I used to record it on channel 12 AND channel 6. There is no information anywhere as to what happened to it. On your schedule it indicates that it will be on Nov. 26th at 12 pm, I think it said. When I look for future programs on Direct TV it is not scheduled, at least so far as Direct TV says. Also, what are channel 12.1 and channel 12.2? I have never seen that. On Direct TV it is simply called channel 12. Has European Journal been discontinued for good? I really liked being informed about what is going on in Europe. American TV does not do much of that. Thanks, Catherine Beyer
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email.
Colorado Public Television broadcasts three separate and distinct channels; channels 12.1, 12.2 and 12.3.
As of a month or so ago , Direct TV has chosen to air only one of our three channels, channel 12.1. I believe they refer to it as channel 12.
You should be able to record European Journal on Direct TV channel 12 on
Tuesday, November 25 at 12:00 pm Midnight
Repeated  Wednesday, November 26 at 5:00 am   on Channel  12
Upcoming Episodes are listed as
European Journal  Tuesday, December 16 at 12:00 pm on Channel 12
European Journal  Tuesday, December 23 at 12:00 pm on Channel 12
European Journal  Tuesday, December 30 at 12:00 pm on Channel 12

POV: After Tiller
Posted: November 24, 2014 by Lauren Siler
Program: american exp (2 comments)
Thank you so much for airing this very important and timely documentary. Like most people I thought the majority of abortions were performed as either a birth control measure or becausse the mother was high risk. I have learned so much from watching this program and only hope that more doctors have the courage and compassion to step forward and perform this vital service. I cannot even imagine that if those who are against third trimester abortions only knew the truth of why most women who have this done make a tremendous heart wrenching decision, that those people would probably make the same decision, too. There were a host of examples given in the program, however the one at the end was the most compelling for me. A woman in her third trimester was carrying her third child, a child whose bones were breaking inside the womb, a child who would have died an excruciating death with breaking bones at every turn had it been carried to term and survived for probably no longer than three or four years. Who would want their child, or any child to experience such appalling pain? I used to say that I would never have an abortion myself, but that I did not feel it was my duty to deny any other woman that right. Now, I can honestly say that if I were to be pregnant with a child who was found to be in mortal fetal distress in the third trimester, yes, I definitely would have that abortion! Why would anyone deny a child the right to die peacefully rather than go on to live a few years in horrible pain? I believe there is only one God, yet my God is merciful; my God is Love. Thank you again, CPT 12, for airing this extremely informative program! I can always count on you for compelling stories, documentaries and news.

I happened onto this flicking through channels while eating lunch. TG4 is the Irish language channel of RTE and has several fine traditional music programs. This one features top-notch sean nos (old style) unaccompanied acapella heavily ornamented singing that is mind-blowingly beautiful. These are not the rowdy come-all-ye's sung by stout men in cable-knit sweaters, nor the high-gloss stage productons of the Riverdance/Celtic Women/Cetic Thunder type, but the artists of all ages giving us their own interpretation of a centuries old tradition. The focus is on the song and the singer, not on the show and the production, and all the better for it. I'll be telling all my friends into trad music about this.

Is it possible for the international crime mysteries to be shown on channel 12 coming out to Denver. We use to get 12.1, but DirectTV cancelled this channel. We really enjoy these mysteries and we don't have the ability to do streaming and we are out of the antenna range for our TV. If you could just add these mysteries to channel for 7PM showing like the old channel, we would be externally grateful. Thank You
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email. I have forwarded your suggestion to our Programming Department.
In the mean time, you do have an option with Direct TV.
 
  • MHz programing is still available at no additional monthly cost from Direct TV. It is part of their 'world direct package'. It does require a second , larger satellite dish to pull in  several free stations. There is a modest $20 fee for dish handling, but no installation fee or monthly subscription cost.  The number we were given that takes you to the right department  at Direct TV is 800-378-3309. To clarify, this second dish is normally for those wishing programming in foreign languages for a fee. The several 'public interest channels' (like MHz) are free.
 
If you have additional questions you can call us from Monday-Friday 9-5 pm and ask to speak with one of our Technical Service representative at 303-296-1212.
 We would like for DirecTV to continue to carry our 12.2.  If you agree, please call DirecTV at 1 (800) 531-5000 and let them know.

Late-term abortions

I am very disappointed to see that you are airing a program about late-term abortionists. This is the most dispicable and horrendous procedure imaginable. It makes me sick to my stomach.

To say that this show is nothing but a Liberal fest, would be putting it lightly, it seems you use to have some opposing opinion on this show.

I couldn't believe that these people felt that 100s of millions in cost over runs is okay with the hotel there building at the Airport, but these people are members of the party that has put this country another 7 Trillion in debt during King Obama's reign. I have to say that your show will be off my list from now on. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Words 1st / Safest Star line Host Black History Month Space Colonization Summit
Posted: November 21, 2014 by Dr. Doug Haynes
Words 1st / Safest Star line Host Black History Month Space Colonization Summit Charley , ' Lind and Doug will be presiding over our first Omnibus Prime new space Colonization summit will be conducted right here in Denver Colorado during Black History month (02-20-2015) at our community's national recognized Five Points (Blair-Caldwell) African American history research library) from around noon to 4:00 pm. More info at www.blueridgeairlines.com colonization link pages, or Dr. Doug Haynes 720-434-0183. The subject matter presented during our black history month summit will be centered around and guided by the recently published literary review contents, as contained within the book named Asela the Oracle, Not only Dr. Doug Haynes, but many of his famous family members and friends have co-authored this well referenced work of literary art to focus professionally on exploring each and all of mankind's ancestors efforts to survive it all. We fell down and got right back up. That means that this trials and tribulation based study of mankind's historical plight to get to where we are today takes the time to examine the pros and cones of our 13.5 billion year old trek / migration efforts across our ever unfolding new spaces aloft and or as contained all around us. Asela the Oracle, which is also pointed at soon becoming an uplifting self-esteem movie and television series, revels the true story of our ancestors, such as Dr, Haynes own famous families, historical migration patterns across the face of the heavens and earth. For example famous members of both the original Givens / Jeters associated family structure, such as the Haynes family own Abner, Marques and even locally Denver known Allegra Happy Haynes, along with other national and international members like Orenthal James / OJ Simpson and president Barack Obama are proudly highlighted and profiled in the book. As we know many members of society such as these individuals serve to represent the best of mankind's ups and downs of today as we now collectively seek as a species permission to penetrate deeply into the new more bountiful spaces aloft. After honoring locally famous Africa Americans such as Dr. Haynes three primary role models Ed Dwight ( the first Black Astronaut) Omar Blair (one of the famously known 99th aero squadronsTuskegee Airman) and as always his dad, Mr. Haynes, who taught him the most a bought aeronautics. We will also take time during the first Omnibus Prime new space Colonization summit to educationally connect with the youth of Colorado. This will be done by conducting one of our typical, 20 year old, aviator’s kid camp's seminars / competition events. Dr. Haynes black history educational Kid Camp's seminar on the 20th of February next year will feature a presentation that seeks to contrast the basic differences between endorsing antiquated, dangerous and over polluting 20th century based rocket powered space flight activities used today verses his vastly superior, 21st century, new wave, USO UFO flying saucer hosting technology's. Not only will the Omnibus Prime space Colonization summit’s kid camp strive to introduce the children of Denver to the use of our Star- trek and Star- wars lookalike drones but it will also provide an opportunity to allow our future Sacernaut passengers their first opportunity to the opportunity to view one of the Haynes Saucers “SI-fi like” twin parachute aided ejection pods. Stop by and start you journey toward becoming not just an outdated Astronaut but the more fashionable Saucernaut enthueses of the 21st century. Its time to get mankind's past present and future story book right at last Pleases feel free to stop by and interject your feelings about migration to space with BRNS and what you can do aloft right now to make it happen sooner than later for us all. Its time to head back to the stars from which we came from at last As all-ways God bless you and yours.

I too am moving to Longmont and also am distraught that classical stretch is not on M-F. It's one of the main reasons I support my current PBS station. The program benefits people of all ages, athletes as well as those in need of rehabilitation. As a health care worker,I've seen good results when my patients have followed the program regularly and have come to depend on it for my own health and flexibility as well. I hope your programming department reconsiders and puts it on at 7 or 8 every weekday as well.

I've enjoyed some of the programming you've ben making available about American Indians.

Posted: November 6, 2014 by Antonio Saraceni
My wife and I were really enjoying channel 12-2 which offered foreign programs from Italy, France, Germany, Sweden, etc. Recently we noticed that you are not broadcasting on 12-2 anymore and therefore these programs don't seem to be available. Is this a decision by KBDI or by Direct TV. What can we do to have these programs back? Thank you.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
 
Colorado Public Television’s  KBDI channel 12 upgraded  it’s signal to high definition. Direct TV has a policy that only allows 2 of our standard definition or one high definition channel to be carried on their system. Direct TV dropped the 12.2 MHz  Worldview Channel on October 15th.
 
We do have a few options for our MHz fans. You can:
 
If you just need to tweak your existing antenna,  check out some tips from the CPT12 engineers, or contact CPT12 for over-the-air signal assistance.

VIDEO: Colorado Division of Aeronautics Weather Stations
Posted: November 3, 2014 by Shahn Sederberg
Hello, My name is Shahn Sederberg, and I am the Communications and Multimedia Manager for CDOT's Division of Aeronautics. I recently produced a short video that documents some of the challenges that Communications Technicians with the Governor's Office of Information Technology face when maintaining and repairing Colorado's network of 12 mountain weather reporting systems. The majority of these systems are located well above tree line in the Colorado high country. This video will give you a quick view of what it takes to first access these locations and the obstacles technicians face once they reach the sites. I thought perhaps this would be a good piece for your programming. I'd be excited to answer any questions you have regarding the video and I hope you enjoy the content! http://youtu.be/jzxlC8JOHwI?list=UU0WFfiQ-SE4kV07saKZdueA Shahn Sederberg Communications & Multimedia Manager Colorado Division of Aeronautics 303-512-5257 shahn.sederberg@state.co.us

I so appreciate CPT12 interviewing political candidates; so thank you. I especially appreciated your interviewing the Green Party candidate, though it would have been better if the candidates supported by the richest corporations were not separated from those who are candidates who do not accept donations from corporations, after all we have learned that separate is not equal. I do however underatand that if some candidates refuse you can only repirt that and not force those candidates to provide their words to the public at the appropriate invitation. I would like to comment on the issue of water since you brought it up with the candidates for District 2 US House of Represenatives. It is interesting that neither the Republican nor the Democrat stated that it is a great destruction of water to use it for fracking. Fracking takes 3 to 5 million gallons of water for every well that is fracked and there are over 30,000 wells in Colorado. The oil corporations add at least a ton toxins, including benzine to the water, which means it cannever be used again for agriculture, drinking, wild life or anywhere there is living things. Certainly the oil corporations should not recieve subsidies nor our clean water to destroy. It would also be helpfulto the public voters, as ypu are trying to do, if you could have a list of the bills that have been introduced during the incumbents term and why or why not they signed the bills. This will also,allow the public to know what and where to find these bills because sometimes candidates say they are against issues, but they actually sign the bills that support those issues they say they are against. Certainly Polis's bill he created for strategies for tax cuts should be brought out and Udalls bill on the NDAA that he signed, as well as any money that Polis has signed over to support the military, which says he supports continued actions of force around the world. Another element that would help voters, is to describe and explain where to find decisions the judgeshave made for those that are being asked to be retained or not. It does not really tell voters enough to give personal information about the judges, they need to hear about the actual cases and the judges decisions in the cases. Finally on the issue of GMOs I would like to state my opinion. I vote Green and try to eat and support Green as opposed to Orange; that is destructive Agent Orange the designer and profiteer of agent Orange also creates most of the GMOs. The company that has been responsible for majority of these creations is Monsanto. The Monsanto corporation lied with knowledge about 1,000s of disabled US soldiers, the chemical killed 10's of 1,000s of men, women and children and has caused DNA damage resulting in ongoing10s of 100s to 1,000s of deformed babies. Why shouldn't I have the right to know if Monsanto gets profits from my buying their creation in food I purchase in the stores! I do want to end this with a reminder that I started this comment with a thank you for working to inform the public and though am encouraging you to take it a step further and giving my opinion, I still so appreciate what you have done.

Finding Movies in German with English subtitles
Posted: November 1, 2014 by Karen Karvonen
Is there anyway I could find out in advance from the schedules posted any German foreign films/series programming? It's a great way for me to expand my conversational German. Thanks! Karen Karvone
CPT12 Response:
We receive MHz over the internet from Virginia and broadcast it out on 12.3 (also Comcast on 252).  We don’t have influence over the signal and merely list it from their monthly update on the schedule.  The best way to find shows you might be interested in is to go to the MHz Networks website or our CPT12 website.  For your convenience, I’ve included links below.

I voted for president Obama I believed him when he said I could keep my health insurance if I wanted to. He lied, I could not keep it. Mark Udall, whom I also voted for tried to cover this fact up. While they are all in Aspen or Martha's Vineyard... I am still paying much more for my health insurance...because the insurance I wanted to keep was taken away from me and my middle class family. Why? Why? Why? Do they lie???

Prop 105
Posted: October 26, 2014 by Name Withheld
I am usually impressed by your programming which often include topics out of the mainstream or subjects that are often so controversial that others choose not to air. I was happy to see that you were airing a debate on Prop 105 only to find the opposition was someone brought in from outside Colorado. Though she has her reasons opposing GMO labeling, she does not live in Colorado and I believe lacks the vested interest in how the outcome would truly affect the lives of Colorado residents.
channel ..12-2
Posted: October 25, 2014 by John james
i don't think most viewers of channel 12-2 care about HD programming. We want the channel 12-2 the way it was. There was no need for this change.
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email. We are not happy about the situation with Direct TV either.
You do have some options if you would like to continue to enjoy MHz Worldview programming
 
If you just need to tweak your existing antenna,  check out some tips from the CPT12 engineers, or contact CPT12 for over-the-air signal assistance.
  • MHz programing is still available at no additional monthly cost from Direct TV. It is part of their 'world direct package'. It does require a second , larger satellite dish to pull in  several free stations. There is a modest $20 fee for dish handling, but no installation fee or monthly subscription cost.  The number we were given that takes you to the right department  at Direct TV is 800-378-3309. To clarify, this second dish is normally for those wishing programming in foreign languages for a fee. The several 'public interest channels' (like MHz) are free.
 
If you have additional questions you can call us from Monday-Friday 9-5 pm and ask to speak with one of our Technical Service representative at 303-296-1212.
 
We would like for DirecTV to continue to carry our 12.2.  If you agree, please call DirecTV at 1 (800) 531-5000 and let them know.

Help in researching a previous show that aired on PBS
Posted: October 24, 2014 by Name Withheld
Hello, I'm a freelance reporter currently working on a story for This American Life. I'm trying to find any information regarding a show that use to air on channel 12 late in the evening called BPM. It would play music videos but did not feature a "Vj". I'm having zero luck finding any information on the Internet, can you help? What I need is when the show first aired and ended. If there is an archive of music videos that were played on it, that would be great! Any information will be helpful and greatly appreciated. Stephen Sanchez 720-496-9736
CPT12 Response:
Our records only go back as far at 2000 and the first instance of B.P.M. is on June 6th, 2000 at 12:00 am.  It’s last airing was September 4th, 2004.  It was produced by Music  Link Productions which also provided Eleven and Music Link, alternating in the midnight slot on other days.
 
As these shows were not produced by Colorado Public Television we don’t have any shows or clips available for distribution.

I have always noticed that your locally produced programming has few if any captions, but now standard PBS programming ling NOVA seem to have "lost" their captions on a regular basis, and even the programming that does have captions suffers from up to 10 minute long "drop outs" where the captions just disappears. For a so-called community based service you claim to be this is a intolerable situation. I have attempted to contact you and noted your seeming lack of sensitivity many times in the past, and have noted other Deaf also have complained of this situation. At this point I am very tempted to contact the Gallaudet Law office to see about perusing any legal means of correcting this, it has become so intolerable. This failure of providing captions on already captioned material is blatant discrimination of the deaf and against current laws and your ignoring the situation runs totally counter to the community based image your station attempts to cultivate.
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for contacting us with your closed captioning issues.  We have checked several NOVA programs in real time to ensure the captioning, and we can see them on our end.  All of our channels are set to pass thru all captions.  Also, our Master Control Operators monitor Closed Captions on all our channels, and would notice long periods of drop-outs.
                In order to trouble shoot the issue more thoroughly, may I ask how you receive our channels?  I ask, as some carriers can strip out captions.
                Also, Colorado Inside Out and Devil’s Advocate both have captions.  Are you receiving those?
                As our dialogue continues, please feel free to e-mail me directly with any programs (specific airdates and times) that you are not receiving captions.  My direct e-mail is : swicks@cpt12.org
               
Thank you for helping us to provide better service for all our viewers-

So, what about the bomb under Lebel's car?
CPT12 Response:
 Hello Stephen,
 
Well, your guess is as good as mine!  I actually haven’t seen the series and was unable to find any info regarding your question. 
I am afraid I am of no help!  Perhaps an internet search would reveal an answer?
 
Best.

Local Death With Dignity story!
Posted: October 21, 2014 by Robert Mitton
Hello, My name is Robert Mitton. I am fifty-nine years old and live in Denver, Colorado. At age fifteen, I contracted an acute case of rheumatic fever, resulting in long-term damage to my heart. In 1999, I received a replacement bovine aortic heart valve via open heart surgery. That bovine valve is now close to failing. I don’t have much longer to live. I have chosen not to undergo another open-heart surgery. In January this year there didn’t appear to be any other viable option. My doctor gave me six months to live. My heart has weakened over the past two years and I haven’t been able to do much physical activity, nor have I had the ability to focus enough mentally to continue my web consulting work (SEO and website design). Unable to work, I have exhausted my savings and currently pay my expenses with help from friends and donations from others. As my end approaches, I have decided to self-deliver rather than suffer as an invalid in the last part of my life. Unfortunately, since self-deliverance, or aid in dying, isn’t legal in Colorado, I’ve had trouble finding a safe and reliable way to end my life. I had planned on self-delivering when my health decreased to the point where pain was overwhelming or when I could no longer move around enough to do daily activities, such as shopping, cooking, and cleaning. However, because of my dire financial situation, I have had to also consider self-delivering before my medical criteria were met, in order to not spend the end of my life homeless. Self-deliverance, aid in dying, or dying with dignity is an important topic. The well-known situation with Brittany Maynard is an example of this. This topic is going to continue to grow in importance and public awareness as “Baby Boomers" continue to age. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my personal situation, aid in dying, or my struggles to obtain medical and social services. I don’t have much time left, but I’d like to try to speak out on these issues if possible. Thanks for your time and consideration. Please contact me at your convenience. Sincerely, Robert Mitton (720) 435-9205 http://dying-with-dignity.blogspot.com/

I applaud your presenting this video again. It is sad that you had to show it so late at a time when most viewers would not see it. But it still helps. I received a call from a friend who could not sleep Saturday night and was watching the show. He had not understood my views about the destruction of the 3 towers until your showing. Thanks.

Thank you for your feedback and for watching Colorado Public Television.

Dropped Programming
Posted: October 20, 2014 by Name Withheld
WOW - Glad to see comments from other disgruntled viewers of the International Mysteries on MHZ Worldview due to CPT12 no longer providing. DirecTV states it has to do with limited bandwidth. HMMM!! Have watched some on computer live streaming but couldn't get it tonight at 10:00PM Doesn't want to come up -- wondering why? Please negotiate something with DirectTV to get this back.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  DirecTV has a policy that a station can carry 2 Standard Definition (SD) or 1 High Definition (HD).  We just ungraded to HD.  Both 12.1 and 12.2 (which DirecTV carry) were upgraded to HD and they dropped the 12.2.
 
We would like for DirecTV to continue to carry our 12.2.  If you agree, please call DirecTV at 1 (800) 531-5000.
 
We do have a few options for our MHz fans.
 
  • Watch it live on our website. You can stream your favorite Mhz programs at the same time you would normally watch them on TV.
  • Stream MHz on your iPhone, iPad, Roku, MobiTV, AudioNow, Google TV, and Android devices
  • Add an antenna (if you live in our broadcast area)  If you are interested in a professional antenna installation or just antenna advice, you can receive afree initial consult and advice from a local installation company, FREETV. If you Just need to tweak your existing antenna,  check out some tips from the CPT12 engineers, or contact CPT12 for over-the-air signal assistance.
  • MHz programing is available at no cost from Direct TV. It is part of a 'world direct package'. It does require a second , larger satellite dish to pull in the several free stations. There is a modest $20. fee for dish handling, but no installation fee or monthly subscription cost.  The number I was given that takes you to the right dept is 800-378-3309. To clarify, this second dish is normally for those wishing programming in foreign languages for a fee. The several 'public interest channels' (like MHz) are free. There is CCTV news from China, CCTV in English, and a Philippine channel.
If you are interested in the adding an antenna you can receive a free consult and advice from a local installation company FREETV:

Program: 9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out (4 comments)
Many, many thanks to Colorado Public Television for the courage to air this controversial material that, in my opinion is must see, as painful as it may be. I am incredibly heartened that this is now being televised! I was a commercial jet aircraft mechanic on September 11, 2001 with extensive experience working on 757 aircraft amongst others. Within a couple of months of that awful day, I was convinced that the world was being lied to. It was the story we were being told about what had supposedly happened in the Pentagon attack that initially sparked my skepticism. I pored over high resolution photos of the impact site, photos posted on the Pentagon website, photos taken by Pentagon photographers, photos moments after the tragedy and later after the smoke cleared. In my years as an FAA Airframe and Power-plant mechanic, trade magazines were ubiquitous, I viewed countless articles of aircraft crash sights; one thing common to them all is identifiable aircraft wreckage, from seat cushions to landing gear, turbine engines, the tail section, etc. Yet there was no photographic evidence of 757 aircraft wreckage at the Pentagon. And in the earliest photos, the façade of the building is fully intact yet there is virtually no aircraft wreckage on the lawn; apparently we are to believe the entire aircraft went through a small hole or window or completely disintegrated. So was born my disbelief in the official story. But I have found that convincing others has been a near impossible task; most folks do not care to even talk about it at all. So I am extraordinarily heartened to see that your station is putting this before a much wider audience because the world should know the truth of these evil deeds. I don't know what happened on 911, but I do know that the official explanation is a lie, plain and simple. Thank you CPT12!

Program: A CONVERSATION WITH LUCA ZINGARETTI (1 comment)
Why are you showing the same programming on two channels?What has happened to MHZ worldview and International Mysteries? This is very upsetting particulary with new mysteries coming in November.
CPT12 Response:
This month Colorado Public Television’s  KBDI channel 12 is upgrading it’s signal to high definition. Direct TV has a policy that only allows 2 of our standard definition or one high definition channel to be carried on their system.

You should  still be able to get 12.1 now HD on your direct TV service but they dropped the 12.2 MHz on October 15th
.
We do have a couple of options for our MHz fans.
  • Watch it live on our website. You can stream your favorite Mhz programs at the same time you would normally watch them on TV.
  • Stream MHz on your iPhone, iPad, Roku, MobiTV, AudioNow, Google TV, and Android devices
  • Add an antenna (if you live in our broadcast area)  If you are interested in a professional antenna installation or just antenna advice, you can receive afree initial consult and advice from a local installation company, FREETV.
