Ireland’s Wild River is scheduled to air on PBS this Wednesday night. It caught my attention for two reasons. It includes segments about bats and frogs, two of my favorite animals. I also was under the impression that our local affiliate was going to air the episode on March 12, which is the next time I will be co-hosting a pledge drive on the station.
I could have misunderstood the phone call from East Tennessee PBS. Maybe they are going to show Ireland’s Wild Rover or Ireland’s Wild Raver that night. It’s also possible that they plan to repeat or delay Ireland’s Wild River. Sometimes they do that in order to insert the pledge breaks without removing any of the show’s content. In other words, a sixty-minute show would get lengthened to seventy-five or ninety minutes.
