More than 200,000 US service members return to civilian life each year. For many veterans, and their families, that transition is filled with challenges.

As part of the Veterans Coming Home project, funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, CET is holding a town hall meeting on August 16 to address some of the many challenges faced by US service members as they transition to civilian life.

WCET-TV kicks off its "Veterans Coming Home" campaign with a forum Tuesday, July 19, at the Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County, 800 Vine St., downtown.

It's part of a national project aimed at closing the military-civilian divide by encouraging conversations across the country, says Kellie May, CET public relations and digital media specialist.

Bob’s back! Tell the kids!

The “Bob the Builder” children’s show has returned to WCET-TV (8:30 a.m. Saturdays, Channel 48) with new voices and new episodes.

The film Trees in Trouble tells the story of America's urban and community forests,their history, their growing importance to our health, economy and environment - and the serious threats they now face. The film shows how community-wide efforts can save and protect our urban forests for future generations.

On this date in TV Kiese history…

July 26, 1954: WCET-TV debuts as the city’s first non-commercial TV station – and first UHF station -- 61 years ago.

July 4th isn’t the same for some of us without Erich Kunzel on PBS’ “A Capitol Fourth.” Kunzel conducted the National Symphony Orchestra July 4th and Memorial Day concerts for nearly 20 years, until his death in 2009 at age 74.

Thanks to CET, Kunzel returns to TV on July 4, with two repeats of “Erich Kunzel: A Cincinnati Legacy,” a  half-hour local special which premiered on July 4, 2010.

  On March 30, CET, KET and other PBS stations will begin airing a new 6-hour Ken Burns production, Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies. The documentary, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee, takes a detailed look at one of our most dreaded diseases. Joining us for a preview of the film and to discuss what we know, and don'’t know, about cancer, are physicians with the University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute, Dr. Rebecca Cornelius, Dr. John Morris, and Dr. Thomas Herzog.
