New York City PBS station WNET (Channel 13) will air the show on: January 2 at 1:30am, January 14 at 10:30pm, January 16 at 1:30am, and January 19 at 3:35am. (Joe Calisi - posted 12/29)

I don't know if this will be available nation wide, or if this is only being shown in NY.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

I would venture to guess that it will be shown on other PBS stations throughout the country but maybe not at the time mentioned...check your local listings.

We can only hope. :rolleyes:

I however went to the PBS website and tried to do a search on the title. Unfortunately while I did get some hits, none were for this show. Maybe they will pass it around, or if you have satelite TV then you may be able to pick up Channel 13.
Alan,

What site can I go to to see if it will air on either the Boston or Providence PBS stations (I receive both)?

Try tvguide.com/listings and do a search on "Seven Secrets of Grand Central" and it should work, as I just tried it. The Search button is on the top right.

Amfleet,

You can also go to PBS.org, then pick your local stations to see if they are showing it.

Alan, what did you think of it?

I Haven't seen it yet. I ended up running out to dinner with my wife, and then forgot all about setting the VCR when I returned home later that night. So I have to wait for the next showing.

I think or at least hope you'll enjoy it. These secrets are very cool and intersting, especially the last one. One secret has two parts to it.

I think this is paid for by the City of New York, so don't get you're hopes up. I hope you do find it. Its probably unfair to you that I taped it.
