PBS is running a special on the history of Houston tonight titled "Houston Remember When" if anyone is interested (will air again at 1AM 18-Sep-09). Just following this program is another special on the transformation of the Montrose area. Both should be good.

This Houston PBS production is a romantic, nostalgic look at an unassuming little town called Houston. It was a time when Gable was dreamy, Harlow was hot, burgers were a nickel, and Roy Rogers was king of the cowboys. Through vintage photographs, home movies, and interviews with those who lived through it, you'll relive intimate memories.

Aw man The Ultimate Fighter is coming on tonight, lol. But I will watch if it comes on early enough. Just can't get enough of History. I would like to see it because I know almost nothing about Houston history, which is weird when you think about it. I know some Texas history, but not the History of my own town. I would really like to see the transformation of Montrose and the rest of the city.

If anyone is interested in Houston and Texas history I recommend the book The Big Rich about the early Texas oilmen.

I am watching it right now... it sucks. They just want to sell their DVDs for 100 bucks (who the hell buys a DVD for 100 Dollars) I have not seen anything else so far... only the DVD selling.

It is called Public Broadcsting for a reason...it is like NPR. It needs donations to survive. No advertising on ch 8.

I really loved the show and I esp liked the one on Montrose also.
