Kyle Kersten was a true friend of TCM. One of the first and most active participants of the Message Boards, “Kyle in Hollywood” (aka, hlywdkjk) demonstrated a depth of knowledge and largesse of spirit that made him one of the most popular and respected voices in these forums. This thread is a living memorial to his life and love of movies, which remain with us still.

I would say that TCM produces good documentaries as well as PBS.

What has happened to the kind of news documentaries I used to see?

Since Murrow, Cronkite, Reasoner, Smith, Sevareid, Collingwood and those journalists have passed on, so has the quality of the documentary. There is no journalistic approach any longer, all high energy and geared for commercial television.

I miss the old days.
