WPT Highlights Wisconsin People and Places in Two All-New Season Premieres

Wisconsin Public Television brings viewers closer to the state's most fascinating people when Around the Farm Table and Wisconsin Life return with all-new episodes beginning 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 6.

Around the Farm Table and Wisconsin Life — series dedicated to telling stories about Wisconsin people and places — air back-to-back on Mondays in October and November.

At 8 p.m. Mondays, Around the Farm Table profiles and celebrates Midwestern farmers and artisan food producers. Driven to seek out the best ingredients the region has to offer, each episode follows host and organic dairy farmer Inga Witscher as she gathers what she needs to produce a meal that celebrates our landscape and our appetites. Along the way, viewers meet the people across the state who are helping bring high-quality food to our tables.

At 8:30 p.m., Wisconsin Life highlights the stories of intriguing Wisconsinites — from Waukesha to Washburn and everywhere in between — and brings to life the humorous, surprising and sometimes emotional tales of those who call Wisconsin home.

With the return of new episodes of Wisconsin Life, viewers can see all-new stories from communities across the state. These stories include that of a marine archaeologist who studies lighthouses along the Great Lakes, a "girl who can sing," opera singer Ariana Douglas, a doctor who was diagnosed with the very cancer he studies, an urban beekeeper and more.

Wisconsin Life is a partnership project of Wisconsin Public Television and Wisconsin Public Radio. In addition to the television program, audio reports air on Wednesday and Friday at 6:35 a.m. and 8:35 a.m. during Morning Edition, and on Central Time at 4:45 on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Past seasons of Wisconsin Life and Around the Farm Table are available for free online streaming at wpt.org.

Funding for Wisconsin Life provided by Alliant Energy, Bremer Bank, Lowell and Mary Peterson, L.E. Phillips Family Foundation, Wisconsin Humanities Council and Friends of Wisconsin Public Television.

Wisconsin Public Television is a place to grow through learning on WHA-TV, Madison; WPNE-TV, Green Bay; WHRM-TV, Wausau; WLEF-TV, Park Falls; WHLA-TV, La Crosse; and WHWC-TV, Menomonie-Eau Claire.
