This is what I got from my local PBS station:
Please accept our sincere apologies for the long delay in replying.
We regret that "Why Quilts Matter" is not currently scheduled to air on Thirteen.
Please be assured that although we would like to air all the programs our viewers would like to see, it is very difficult because of our tight schedule. However, we have forwarded your request to the appropriate staff to be tallied with others we receive. Our guide at www.thirteen.org
is always available for you to check for possible programming changes.
Many thanks for taking the time to write and for your interest in Thirteen.

Please air the documentary "Why Quilts Matter...." . It is an important miniseries that will garnish you many viewers and possibly many donations. Quilters are an awesome and extremely large sub-culture. Please don't sweep us aside.
