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 | Home Fires - It's June 1940, and Britain faces the threat of imminent invasion. Pat strikes up a friendship with a Czech soldier stationed nearby. Sarah receives some shocking news about Adam, but her sorrow is overshadowed by a tragedy for Frances. Available now through May 6, 2021

Nature | Ireland's Wild River - The Shannon is Ireland's greatest geographical landmark and the longest river. It is both a barrier and highway - a silver ribbon holding back the rugged landscapes of the west from the gentler plains to the east. The Shannon passes through a huge palette of rural landscapes, where on little-known backwaters, Ireland's wild animals and plants still thrive as almost nowhere else. Available now through February 25, 2021

American Masters | Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning - Her photograph Migrant Mother is one of the most recognized and arresting images in the world, a portrait that came to represent America's Great Depression. Yet few know the story, struggles and profound body of work of the woman who created the portrait: Dorothea Lange. Directed and narrated by Lange's granddaughter Dyanna Taylor. Available beginning April 21 through August 25, 2018
