Shame on you, WGBH

Back in October, I told you about season two of e². I searched and searched the WGBH online schedule, but couldn't find when it will be shown. I finally gave in and emailed WGBH. A few days later, I got this reply:

The series you cited is not currently scheduled to air on WGBH 2 or 44. However, we have forwarded your request for WGBH to air this program to our broadcast manager.

We value viewer and listener opinions, indeed audience feedback is an important part of the process of programming for public television. All comments are carefully reviewed and considered in light of our planning and programming process.

WGBH is one of the biggest and oldest public television stations in the country. They "produce more of the PBS prime-time and Web lineup than any other station." Playing shows they don't produce costs more, so they need to see a demand for that production to be convinced to show it.

Here's where you come in: contact WGBH and tell them you want to see e²: energy and e²: design.

In the meantime, you can watch web- and podcasts on the e² website.
