Darn! I missed part 2 of Death Comes to Pemberly. Is there a way to see a replay?
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
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. You might try googling the title to see if it is available at some of the streaming sites. I did not find it on Hulu or You Tube.
Wish I had better news.
All the Best,
Joan

Thank you so much for the fantastic programming! Shows like Masterpiece Mystery, Frontline, Moyers and Company, Nova...etc. truly are exceptional for learning and entertainment. Bill Moyers is my HERO! And the people who decide shows to air are right up there as well! Well Done!

 Thank you for such a nice email.

Masterpiece Mystery - Poirot - the last season
Posted: September 2, 2014 by Joann Price
Program: Masterpiece (11 comments)
So, you have shown two of the five episodes of Poirot's last season, but why not all five episodes?
CPT12 Response:
We have already aired the two new Season 12 Poirot episodes.  Broadcast rights are very complicated and we can only air those still in rights.  It is an unfortunate reality we deal with on a daily basis.
 
Hope this helps.
 
Best,

Why wasn't Masterpiece on last evening, Monday, 8/18, as noted by your website earlier this month and according to the Denver Post yesterday? Who wants to watch training dogs?
CPT12 Response:
 Thank you for your email.
Masterpiecewas preempted Monday for pledge programming. It will return next Monday, August 25 at 7:00 pm on Channel 12.1.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.  Our pledge programming brings in the funds needed to acquire the broadcast rights for great shows like Masterpiece.
Sincerely,
Joan

weather alert interruption

Your answer to the July 15, 2014 question is an example of a mindless escape from the question. Other local channels manage to respond to the problem without the same degree off pain to the viewer. The continuous reiteration of ways to seek safety are especially irritating and serve no discernible purpose.

WHY can you not just scroll weather alerts silently and keep programming audio unmolested?! The past two Monday evenings Masterpiece Mystery was savaged by your public service weather audio interruptions.
CPT12 Response:
 Yes, it can be frustrating to have your favorite program interrupted however, imagine if you are visually impaired and there is a tornado heading your way! 
We are required by the FCC to provide emergency information.  Here is an excerpt with a link to the FCC following the excerpt:
How Does Emergency Information Need to Be Made Accessible?
In the case of persons who are deaf or hard of hearing, emergency information that is provided in the audio portion of programming must be provided either using closed captioning or other methods of visual presentation, such as open captioning, crawls or scrolls that appear on the screen. Video programming distributors must ensure that emergency information does not block any closed captioning, and closed captioning should not block any emergency information provided by means other than closed captioning. Closed captions are visual text displays that are hidden in the video signal. You can access closed captions through your remote control or on-screen menu or through a special decoder. Open captions are an integral part of the television picture, like subtitles in a movie. In other words, open captions cannot be turned off. Text that advances very slowly across the bottom of the screen is referred to as a crawl; displayed text or graphics that move up and down the screen are said to scroll.
In the case of persons who are blind or visually impaired, emergency information that is provided in the video portion of a regularly scheduled newscast or a newscast that interrupts regular programming must be made accessible. This requires the aural description of emergency information in the main audio. If the emergency information is being provided visually during programming that is not a regularly scheduled newscast or a newscast that interrupts regular programming (e.g., the programmer provides the emergency information through “crawling” or “scrolling” during regular programming), this information must be accompanied by an aural tone. Beginning May 26, 2015, this information must be made accessible to individuals who are blind or visually impaired through the use of a secondary audio stream to provide the emergency information aurally. The aural tone will continue to alert persons with vision disabilities that the broadcaster is providing emergency information, and, as of May 26, 2015, will alert them to tune to the secondary audio stream, such as a radio, for more information.

The Escape Artist

I taped the 2nd episode for the Escape Artist, knowing I was having out of town guest and would not be able to watch. On July 6th after all my company left I sat down to a some program about Berkeley University under the title Masterpiece Mystery. I frantically started looking for another showing. Next I went to your website, only to find you did a replay on July 5th. Will you be doing another repeat? I am so disappointed in missing the ending to this very exciting thriller.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email.
Colorado Public Television does not have that episode scheduled to re air at this time, however you can stream the program at the link below:

The Escape Artist episode 2
Posted: July 7, 2014 by Rebecca Frazer
Program: Masterpiece (11 comments)
Like several other viewers I waited for episode 2 to air and was most disappointed when some other program was on instead. I am hoping that you will air episode 2 again as I was unable to view it over the holiday weekend. I'm sure many other viewers missed the episode due to holiday plans. It seems to me that it would be worthwhile to show the entire program again. Thank you.
CPT12 Response:
Thanks for writing.  There was a mix up on Monday the 30th of June, so they decided to air it on Saturday the 5th of July.  It was on at 2:30 p.m..  Unfortunately you missed it.  We informed the public through e-mails (those who inquired) and other sources that we would be airing it on the 5th.
 
I apologize, but It is not due to air again at this time.
 
All the Best,

My TV guides all said Part Two of Escape Artist was to be shown Monday, June 30, but there was some panel from Berkley. Will you broadcast it and, if so, when?

CPT12 Response:
We will be airing Masterpiece Theatre: The Escape Artist part 2 on Saturday, July 5th at 2:30 p.m. 
 
We apologize for any inconvenience, but there was some kind of mix up.
 
Thank you for watching Colorado Public Television.

I was all set to watch the 2nd episode in this two part program at 7 pm this evening. Imagine my dismay to see it wss not on, Independent Lens was on. Are you going to be showing it another time? I was unable to watch the 2nd episode when it first aired and was really looking forward to this. I did not see any announcement of the change and it is still showing up on the schedule as being at 7. Please let me know when it will be on again. Thank you.
