About PBA Forum Network
The Forum Network is presented as part of a new partnership with PBS and NPR, with generous funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. PBA is a collaborating partner with WGBH Boston, WETA in Washington, DC, and WNET New York in expanding this online lecture service.
The PBA Forum Network service gives online audiences an opportunity to watch video lectures by some of the world's foremost scholars, authors, artists, scientists, and policymakers. Forum Network lectures are hosted by community organizations and educational institutions in Atlanta and beyond. The Forum Network online lecture library currently includes thousands of video and audio files, produced by PBA and other participating public broadcast stations from across the country. As part of a public broadcast station collaboration all lectures are aggregated into one common digital archive and made available to our local Atlanta audiences as well as audiences worldwide, through the Forum Network.

About Atlanta Public Broadcasting
Great cities are known by their museums, theaters, symphonies and parks. But the greatest impact on a city's cultural life radiates invisibly through the air.
For Atlanta, that cultural force is Public Broadcasting Atlanta. WABE 90.1 FM and PBA 30, brings NPR News, music, the arts and PBS programming to hundreds of thousands of listeners and viewers each year. Today, people turn to public broadcasting for their news, music, arts and entertainment. Yet, few people realize that public broadcasting began as "educational television" -- strictly a learning resource. As a broadcast service of Atlanta Public Schools in partnership with the Atlanta Educational Telecommunications Collaborative (AETC), PBA has never lost sight of its original mission. Education remains at the core of our operation at every level, from preschoolers to our elders.
