A Series of Online Viewing Experiences

Panhandle PBS Presents invites viewers to a virtual room to watch national and local Panhandle PBS content and chat electronically with others and sometimes, the filmmakers themselves! We hope those we serve will enjoy this opportunity to connect with fellow community members, engage in real-time dialogue, learn something new, and stay safe wherever they are.

Online, interactive platforms will include Zoom and OVEE (Online Viewing and Engagement Experience). Event information will be updated on this page as it becomes available. For more information, please call Panhandle PBS at 806-371-5479.

Ali National Preview and Discussion

Screening details:

September 14, 2021 at 6 p.m.

RSVP Here:

Join a national PBS hour-long discussion with the filmmaker and special guests, featuring clips from the new four-part series, Muhammad Ali.

Muhammad Ali was directed by Ken Burns, and written and co-directed by Sarah Burns and David McMahon. The film follows the life of one of the best-known figures of the 20th century, a three-time heavyweight boxing champion who captivated millions of fans with his mesmerizing combination of speed, agility and power in the ring, and his charm, wit and outspokenness outside of it. At the height of his fame, Ali challenged Americans' racial prejudices, religious biases, and notions about what roles celebrities and athletes play in our society, and inspired people all over the world with his message of pride and self-affirmation.

Muhammad Ali will air on Panhandle PBS September 19-22 from 7:00-9:00 p.m.
