retraction Re: 1812 "History Detectives," many crossed wires
- Friends -- I must reluctantly retract yesterday's announcement. Despite the producer's announcement of a national broadcast commitment, the "Star-Spangled Banner" episode of History Detectives will not be broadcast tonight in my home state of Maryland, nor in the Virginia or Washington, DC. No one can tell me where else it might be shown, short of checking local, individual PBS affiliate stations.
I am extremely miffed, and I apologize to one and all. If the production company announces a definitive air date in the future, one that can be confirmed with at least a few major stations, I'll re-post the details. So sorry about this.

Subject: RE: 1812 "History Detectives" tomorrow night -- something new about "The Star-Spangled Banner"
For those of us who don't live in the lower 48, or simply don't have access to PBS, how about a hint? Tomorrow, of course, so as not to spoil the suspense! Thanks!
> Colleagues -- for anyone interested in Oscar Sonneck, John Philip Sousa, Walter Damrosch, or "The Star-Spangled Banner," tune in on PBS to the show "History Detectives" tomorrow night, January 8th at 8 PM EST / 7 PM CST. Filmed at the Peabody Conservatory, Fort McHenry and beyond, it concerns a significant, recently-surfaced early 20th-century manuscript and . . . . well, tune in and learn something new![Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
