This great Jean Shepherd PBS movie has not been shown in the NYC metro area in years. Recently I've e-mailed my three local PBS stations requesting broadcasts of 'Phantom' and all the Shep PBS films. I've yet to receive a reply (of course) but if enough people request the films, we may have a shot at seeing them on TV, at least in the NYC area.

PBS station programming may be contacted at -

WNET, channel 13, NYC -

WLIW, channel 21, Long Island -

WNJN, channel 50, New Jersey -
WNJN reply 08/02/05: Thank you for contacting NJN with your inquiry pertaining to Jean Shepherds movies. Unfortunately I do not see the programs in our current schedule but I will forward your request to Programming for consideration.

I contacted PBS Video over a year ago regarding these films on DVD. They replied that "Unfortunately we do not have any plans to acquire and distribute these movies at this time. I apologize for the frustration."

PBS Video may be contacted at -
