Remember, programs are typically available for free to anyone to view for a set amount of time after broadcast, before transitioning to WITF Passport.  Here are some highlights for programs coming to WITF Passport this week:

Masterpiece | Sherlock: The Lying Detective - In episode two Sherlock, Season 4, Sherlock faces perhaps the most chilling enemy of his long career: the powerful and seemingly unassailable Culverton Smith, a man with a very dark secret indeed. "The Lying Detective" is written by Steven Moffat. Benedict Cumberbatch returns as Sherlock Holmes, with Martin Freeman as John Watson, Mark Gatiss as Mycroft Holmes, Rupert Graves as Inspector Lestrade. Watch it on Passport through January 14, 2021.

American Masters | Eero Saarinen: The Architect Who Saw the Future - Best known for designing National Historic Landmarks such as St. Louis' iconic Gateway Arch and the General Motors Technical Center, Saarinen also designed New York's TWA Flight Center at John F. Kennedy International Airport, Yale University's Ingalls Rink and Morse and Ezra Stiles Colleges, Virginia's Dulles Airport, and modernist pedestal furniture like the Tulip chair.  Available on Passport beginning January 27.

Nature | Cold Warriors: Wolves and Buffalo - Wildlife filmmaker Jeff Turner captures how wolves and buffalo live together in what seems like a forgotten corner of the world. Available on Passport beginning January 25.
