What's IdahoPTV's Mission? We Tell Idaho's Stories.

Idaho Experience

IDAHO EXPERIENCE is the newest documentary series produced by the award-winning team at Idaho Public Television. The series uncovers untold stories, bringing new information to light and connecting Idaho’s past in a contemporary way. Significant support is needed to help underwrite the production costs and Idaho history curriculum development for 4th grade students, shared for free on PBS LearningMedia.

OUTDOOR IDAHO celebrates the diversity and richness of our state and its people by exploring the beauty, drama and science of nature, while taking a close look at resource and environmental issues facing the West.


DIALOGUE introduces viewers to a wide range of eclectic and inspiring people, covering diverse topics in “conversations that matter.”

Idaho Reports

Each month during the school year the Science Trek team explores a scientific subject with new 60-second video shorts also available on the website, Facebook, YouTube and on PBS LearningMedia.
