By Chip Chandler — Producer

The celebration of our 30th anniversary will continue through the end of 2018 with more looks back in to our vault.

Since March, we have been dipping into our vaults to bring back some of the most popular documentaries and specials our team has produced over the years.

The response has been so positive that we have decided to continue these special encores through the end of the year, airing both specials that haven’t re-aired in a while and a few truly beloved ones that we’re airing again by popular demand.

We've timed several encores of past arts documentaries to air in conjunction with the groups' 2018-19 season openers, such as I've Gotta Crow paired with Amarillo Little Theatre's opening of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on Sept. 6, the Sept. 13 airing of Roundings: Texas Sounds and Symbols to coincide with Amarillo Symphony's Sept. 14-15 opening weekend, and more.

December's programming will all be holiday-related, as well.

Each special will air at 7 p.m. Thursdays, then encore at midnight the following Saturdays (late-night Fridays) and 4:30 p.m. the following Sundays.

Here's what to expect:

Sept. 6:  I’ve Gotta Crow: The Making of ALT’s Peter Pan (1997)

Sept. 13:  Roundings: Texas Sounds and Symbols (2000)
