:D Great! I do hope too that it will be on American TV (and crossing fingers - on the station in the part of the country I can get).

That station has shown the concert of The Priests that Moya was apart of several times...soo...the name should certainly ring bells in their minds...let's hope! :P

I'm thrilled about this as well. PBS is one of my favorite stations since I am a dork who grew up without cable. It will be so wonderful to have her on the air here in the states. Maybe it can also increase her visibility over here and bring her to a wider audience.

You'll have to excuse my ignorance of American TV here, but is PBS likely to have a website?

Thought I'd ask in case they archive programmes on a site, in the same way as the likes of TG4 do in Ireland. I'm sure there are a few of us on this side of The Pond who wouldn't mind seeing the programmes as well - they sound really interesting! :)

Any information gratefully received!!!

Hey Dab,

I am not sure if the PBS website is anything at all like the BBC's or TG4, but you might want to try this link here:

http://www.pbs.org/search/search_programsaz.html

Hope that helps a bit. BTW, I just looked up Moya on the site, and the only thing that pops up is her performance with the Priests.

Your welcome, I am going to keep good tabs on that list. Hopefully Moya's supposed show pops up sooner, rather than later. :)
