Behind the Bard

Perhaps no English-language works are more enduring than those of William Shakespeare, whose themes continue to be relevant in our daily lives. Enjoy WQLN TV's original “Behind the Bard” shorts, in support of the PBS series Shakespeare Uncovered II. WQLN, Gannon University’s Schuster Theatre, and the Erie Playhouse team up to share unique Shakespeare insights.

Erie Now

Erie Now, a WQLN TV Original Production, is an informative series of discussions featuring local journalists who interview local Erie Vital Signs experts about Erie County’s well-being in eight topic areas. Erie Now aims to inform the public and inspire community action in key areas of greatest importance to the vitality of our region.

Perspective: Jewish History

Produced in collaboration with WNET and Mercyhurst University, the two-part WQLN TV Original Production Perspective: Jewish History re-visits Imperial Rome and Europe in the Middle Ages to discover how and why Christendom made outsiders of the Jewish people. Watch Perspective: Jewish History, and listen to WQLN Radio's Story of the Jews Audio Diary.

Perspective: 30 Seconds of Magic

This WQLN TV Original Production examines first-hand the process, from start to finish, of producing a series of award-winning television commercials. From scripting, logistics, and casting, to on-site shoots, to the final touches of sound-effects, editing, and animation, you can see behind the scenes as a local full-service production house transforms raw inspiration and talent into a final product that feels like... pure magic.
