Here is another rare PBS station logo: The WNET logo from the early 1970's. It is quite rare; it just says "wnet 13" in different colors. It comes from the documentary "An American Family." Watch from 0:11 to 0:17:
Does anyone here know of "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" will be on PBS? It's an NPR radio quiz show. I heard they were making it TV worthy and would love to see it. ( Just seemed an appropriate thread for posting this.)
One classic PBS program that might run into problems being rerun is Zoom, due to its frequent use of address plugs. It would probably have to be heavily edited, so don't expect to hear that catchy jingle, "...Boston, Mass. 0-2-1-3-4...". (Similar to the reason why you'll never see Your Number's Up on GSN.)

Besides, that "0-2-1-3-4" jingle's been a tried-and-true staple of pop culture since God knows when, and I oughta know--the most important rule of pop culture: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

The Puzzle Place was one show that I loved when I was young because I liked the characters and the show was so cute and the other PBS show I LOVED was Barney And Friends and I would never miss a single episode and I was such a fan of Barney And Friends that I had a Barney themed birthday party when I was around six and I had a Baby Bop bank and a stuffed Barney dressed as Santa and I still have those items with me today. I can honestly say PBS was the best channel for kids shows in the 80's and 90's because they really gave kids lessons on how to behave and manners too. And believe it or not I learned manners from Barney And Friends as well. I also had the chance to attend a PBS Kids expo where I got to see all the new PBS Kids shows that came out in the 90's and had my picture taken with RoboCrook of Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego and it was great fun and wonderful too. Another PBS show I remember from my childhood was a show called Storytime that featured a puppet named Kino and many celebrities would read different stories to kids. Does anyone remember that show?,
Here is a full classic episode of The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour from June 28, 1995:
You'll notice for the jingle, they used "Evolution", composed by Craig Everett Palmer for Killer Tracks' Network Music division.

There was another episode of this show that was uploaded by former YouTube user Cutter91722, 5 years ago. In fact, he had a pretty good number of vintage PBS clips uploaded before his account suspension occurred.
This is a behind-the-scenes look at a rare PBS show: Studio See. And believe it or not, there is another rare vintage PBS station logo. It's the circa-1979 logo of South Carolina ETV. It isn't the "SC" logo. It's at 0:53 to 0:58.
Also, there are clips of some vintage episodes of The Woodwright's Shop, as well. On Season 1, episode 1, there is a very rare UNC-TV logo. It's the mid '70s one, where the letters are apple-green and navy-blue. It's at 0:11 to 0:20.
All other episodes have some form of old UNC-TV logo at the beginning (1979 logo for the rest of Season 1 and all of Season 2, and the "flashing squares" logo Seasons 3-8, and the "turning circle" from at least Season 9, which is what is uploaded as of now).
And here is Square One Television episode #414:
Back in 1985, there was a show called The Business File, which was one of PBS's many telecourses. This is the opening:
And here is a PBS satellite feed from 1994:
The last 20 minutes of The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour from March 29, 1989. Includes funding credits, closing credits, and PBS "split profile" logo:
A promo from WTVS, circa 1987:
