Downton Abbey returns for an epic fifth season of intimately interlaced stories centered on an English country estate—a deliciously entertaining formula that has made it the highest-rated drama in PBS history.

Viewers can expect to follow plot threads left dangling from last season, including Lady Mary’s courtship contest, Lady Edith’s trials as a secret single mom, Thomas’s scheming against Bates, Robert’s battles against modernity, Tom’s quest to be true to his ideals, Violet’s one-line zingers, and much, much more. As Season 5 kicks off, it’s 1924. The United Kingdom has its first Labor Party prime minister. The radio is the latest miracle of the age. And Downton’s traditional ways are besieged on all fronts.

Downton Abbey, Season 5, airs Sundays at 9 PM from January 4 – March 1, 2015 on Masterpiece on NHPTV and PBS.NHPTV

Dec. 7 @ 2:00 PM


Presented in the Simchik Cinema at 4:00 pm.  Complimentary coffee (or tea) and snack. 
After film commentary/discussion with each movie.


SCREAM OF FEAR (NR/1961/81 min.)
When wheelchair bound Penny Appleby (Susan Strasberg) returns to her father’s villa, she learns from her new stepmother (Ann Todd) that he’s away on business. Penny soon discovers, however, he’s been murdered.  But that is difficult for her to prove because his corpse has disappeared.  Nifty, unpredictable plot twists, shadowy black and white photography and a sterling British supporting cast (Ronald Lewis, John Serret and a creepy Christopher Lee) produce bona fide chills.


Sundays @ 4:00 PM

Andrew Pinard: Discovering Magic. Are you the type of person who loves to be surprised; the kind of person that marvels at how remarkable the world is and celebrates the weird and wonderful ways that we experience the world? If so, Discovering Magic is the experience for you! Back for its second year, this “mind-numbing, jaw-dropping, eye-opening” experience takes audiences on a guided tour of the impossible and the absurd. Using only the most ordinary of objects, accomplished actor, conjuror, puppeteer, storyteller, and award-winning performer Andrew Pinard brings the ordinary to life with the most surprising results. The only show of its kind in the New England, audiences have traveled from Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire to experience sleight of hand, con games, psychology, history, science, comedy, cognitive development, political spin, and more through the eyes of a “perceptual engineer” on his quest to explore distortion and guile.Pinard has been a full-time performer and theatre artist for over twenty-five years. He has presented thousands of performances throughout the northeastern United States as well as internationally in Canada, England, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. Pinard has been recognized by his peers as one of the finest close-up performers throughout the Northeast and took the top honors in the 18th Annual New England Magic Competition. Pinard was selected twice as Editors’ Choice for Best Magical Entertainer in “The Very Best of New Hampshire” issues of New Hampshire Magazine.The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts has referred to his “impressive ability with sleight-of-hand.” After attending the premiere episode of Discovering Magic, Rick Broussard, Editor of New Hampshire Magazine, wrote: “Your show is remarkable, Andrew. Anyone who hasn’t seen it owes it to themselves to go.
