I was flipping around and when I got to the PBC, they were doing a bit on the animals in India and I noticed that it's in widescreen. When did they start doing this?
It's nice to see that even the PBC knows that it's time to start airing shows in widescreen. :)

If it's a show produced in Europe (usually England), then local PBS stations in the U.S., Discovery channel, etc., usually show it in letterboxed 16:9 nowadays. Nice isn't it?

Actually, some programming has been produced in 16x9 for the last few years. Most of the last season (2000/2001) of FRONTLINE was 16x9. They switched back to mostly 4x3 this season, though. Nova has also done a lot of 16x9 shows.
