Maryland Public Television invites you to help foster regional public awareness and education about the Chesapeake Bay by participating in Chesapeake Bay Week® 2018.  This special, bay-themed week of programming, that spans the history, culture, science and current challenges of the bay — from cooking and arts, to environmental problems and politics — is one of the only such programming initiatives in the country. We believe you and your viewers will be pleasantly surprised by how our nation’s waterways touch our lives and connect all of us to each other.

New offerings for 2018 include: The Chesapeake Bay Summit 2018 – A television event, scheduled for Tuesday, April 26, 2018 @ 8:00 pm EST, asks the question - Is Climate Change real or, as some believe, merely a hoax perpetrated by scientists and foreign governments?  If it is real, what is the evidence and what are the short- and long-term impacts?  Stations can either air the program live (by satellite) on both TV and radio, and/or record it for later airings.  Eatin’ the Chesapeake: The Five Feasts – Learn how to create and enjoy treasured family recipes from the bay region.  High Tide in Dorchester – Rising sea levels are alarming more coastal areas, but few communities are planning adequately to meet the rising challenges.  Storyline – a 90 minute film anthology series, produced by Maryland Public Television, that curates topical, relevant and timely environmental films produced by independent filmmakers.   

Committing airtime to sustain our environment offers public television a unique and exciting opportunity to exercise our educational muscle to spur public interest and activism.  On Sunday, April 22, 2018, the nation will also celebrate Earth Day, so it is the perfect time to have your viewers participate in this important event.  All the programs offered have rights extended to the end of this year, so MPT encourages your station to either participate during the same week (April 22 – 28, 2018) or create your own Environmental Week when your schedule permits.

To Acquire Programs: The program catalog highlights all the 2018 offers with a web address on the cover to direct you to more information and program clips.  The full programs will be fed to stations by satellite in late March/early April 2018.  A detailed schedule with the days and times of the program feeds will follow in the coming weeks.
