Are you ready to go way back?

We’re diving into our vault for ETV Classics this summer!

SCETV Digital will launch ETV Classics, a thirteen-episode series featuring some of your favorite shows from South Carolina ETV. These hand-picked classics will premiere on and the SCETV App on Wednesday, May 18, 2022.

Plan to take nostalgic look back at featured shows from the following series:

Studio See was a magazine-style children's television show for 10–15 years old that aired from January 22, 1977, to March 26, 1979, on PBS. Created by Jayne Adair, Studio See was produced by South Carolina ETV and shot nationwide with the help of other PBS member stations.

NatureScene was one of the most successful series produced by South Carolina ETV, taking viewers for a field trip in nature with Naturalist Rudy Mancke from 1978 to 2003. Along with Rudy were hosts Beryl Dakers and Jim Welch, and Director of Photography Allen Sharpe.

Mary Long’s Yesteryear was produced and hosted by Mary Long. She delighted viewers as she wove stories of South Carolina’s rich heritage from pirates to plantations. This series explored little-known stories that you won’t find in history books.

These are just a few series!
