Weekend and the week ahead on IPTV – May 14 edition

I know the weather in Iowa is starting to turn nice, but there still is good television on your statewide network.

You can always set the DVR or TiVo for the following shows as reported to us by the IPTV press shop:

Tonight at 6:30 The Iowa Journal examines the economic recovery in Iowa. You can also watch The Iowa Journal at 8:30 a.m. Saturday on IPTV WORLD, and online at www.iptv.org/iowajournal. (You can read more on this show here. The show includes a trip to Carroll, Iowa for a snapshot of their economy.)

At 7:30 tonight, watch Iowa Press, featuring an interview with Gov. Chet Culver. The program can also be seen Saturday at 9 a.m. on IPTV WORLD, Sunday at 11:30 a.m. on IPTV, and online at www.iptv.org/iowapress. (By the way, there’s a big mention of Jesup, Iowa in the show. Check out what he said.)

On Market to Market tonight at 8, watch coverage of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill as major players are summoned to Washington, as well as an unlikely coalition of politicians and environmentalists working together to regulate carbon dioxide. And, the USDA releases projections for a record corn harvest and a bumper crop of soybeans. You can also watch Market to Market Saturday at 8 a.m. on IPTV WORLD, Sunday at noon on IPTV, and online at www.iptv.org/mtom. (Here’s the link to the MtoM blog)

Saturday at 2:30 p.m. Ask This Old House features general contractor Tom Silva helping a pair of homeowners as they install a sliding glass door.

Nature: Crash: A Tale of Two Species, Sunday at 7 p.m., examines the fabric of life, and how all species are interconnected.

On Monday at 8 p.m., take a look at the longest-serving cruise ship and the four decades it spent on the high seas in QE2  The Last Voyage.

NOVA: Storm That Drowned a City provides a minute-by-minute account of the Hurricane Katrina disaster, exploring the human failures. Tune in Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Learn the true story of Germany’s invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 and the Battle of Stalingrad on Secrets of the Dead: Deadliest Battle Wednesday at 7 p.m.

On Thursday at noon, The Des Moines Register Governor Debate: Race for the Republican Nomination airs live on IPTV WORLD and streamed live on www.iptv.org. A panel of journalists will ask questions of the three candidates seeking the Republican nomination for Governor. The debate will be rebroadcast Thursday at 7 p.m. on IPTV.

Here’s the link to Iowa Broadcast News Association debate held in Cedar Rapids on May 1, 2010.

And it will likely rain again soon and you’ll be stuck inside and need some good quality television to watch.
