Public television's rich legacy documents America's social history through programming not offered by commercial television. Programs like "Nature", "NOVA", and "Frontline" are only produced digitally, often in high-definition (HD). Digitally produced public television programs are at great risk of being lost because rapid changes in technology make new video formats and equipment obsolete quickly. Saving these digital programs today will ensure they live far into the future.
