Two New ITVS Films Added to PBS’s COVE Video Player

Posted on December 9, 2009
Interested in watching full-length episodes of Independent Lens and other PBS series online for free? Look no further than PBS’s video player: COVE (Comprehensive Online Video Ecosystem). Just added to the slate of Independent Lens titles on COVE is THE ATOM SMASHERS, about a group of scientists as they search for the Higgs boson: an as yet undiscovered subatomic particle that could explain how matter—and, therefore, life—can exist. Variety writes “THE ATOM SMASHERS entertainingly brings particle physics—and the brainy geeks who've devoted their lives to its study—into sharp focus.” Watch THE ATOM SMASHERS on COVE >> Also available on COVE is the critically acclaimed THE WAY WE GET BY, which follows three senior citizens who have made history by greeting nearly one million U.S. troops at a tiny airport in Maine. The Washington Post writes “'THE WAY WE GET BY' is not so much a slice of life as the whole pie, the highs and lows of twilight living, all found and filmed in a terminal at an airport in Maine. What a country.” THE WAY WE GET BY premiered on P.O.V. in November. Watch THE WAY WE GET BY on COVE >> Also check out Returning Home, the interactive website inspired by the film >>
