Premiering Sunday, June 12 at 7:00pm on Blue Ridge PBS

Bob Ross, one of the most iconic figures in public television, seems deeply familiar to viewers but fundamental information about him has never been revealed. What is Bob Ross' story as a man and an artist? How did The Joy of Painting get started? And what was it about Bob himself that made him such a compelling figure?

Blue Ridge PBS will answer these questions and more with this one-hour, high definition documentary. Some of the most surprising elements of the program are the interview segments with celebrities who learned to paint the Bob Ross way including Brad Paisley, Jane Seymour and Terrance Howard. Blue Ridge PBS also secured an interview with Phil Donahue, who played an important role in Bob Ross' career by featuring the artist on his Chicago-based show.

Thanks for posting this, Carol. I'll keep an eye out for this special on our local PBS station, but most likely will never find it. <sigh> We don't seem to ever get shows like this around here.

Thanks for the link and info, Carol. They still show old shows with Bob Ross on German TV, but unfortunately most times late at night so it happens quite a lot when I'm fortunate to catch an episode, that I fall asleep while watching because Bob has such a soothing voice.

I wish they would air this special on German TV too.
