Smithsonian Channel to Launch New In Color Programming


Smithsonian Channel is set to soon roll out the third season of America in Color as well as the first season of Britain in Color.

The six new episodes of America in Color explore such themes as the changing roles of the American worker, immigration and the enduring values of small-town America. The three-episode debut season of Britain in Color brings to life the British Empire, the royal family and Winston Churchill. The former returns on Sunday, November 17 at 8 p.m., with the latter to follow at 9 p.m.

The season premiere of America in Color, “Coming to America,” sees millions of immigrants arriving in search of the American dream from the turn of the century through the 1960s. It will be available to stream on Smithsonian Channel’s YouTube page beginning Sunday, November 10. “Royalty,” the Britain in Color premiere episode, features the earliest existing footage of Queen Victoria before her death in 1901.

Both series are produced by Arrow Media for Smithsonian Channel. Sam Starbuck serves as executive producer and Tom Brisley as creative director. Charles Colville is series producer. John Cavanagh, Charles Poe and David Royle are executive producers for Smithsonian Channel.
