CUNY TV's restoring of the classic public television program, "Day at Night", which aired from 1973-1974. In this episode, host James Day talks with writer Katherine Anne Porter about her nearly fifty year career as a writer, filled with poetry, prose, short stories and her novel "Ship of Fools". They discuss some of Ms. Porter's most famous works including "Pale Horse, Pale Rider", as well as the message she was trying to convey through those literary works.
CUNY TV is proud to re-broadcast newly digitized episodes of DAY AT NIGHT, the popular public television series hosted by the late James Day. Day was a true pioneer of public television: co-founder of KQED in San Francisco, president of WNET upon the merger of National Educational Television (NET) and television station WNDT/Channel 13, and most recently, Chairman of the CUNY TV Advisory Board. The series features fascinating interviews with notable cultural and political figures conducted in the mid 1970's. (Taped:06/25/73)
