NOTE:  We are unable to provide an accurate listing of PBS described shows because PBS does not publish such a listing, AND the schedule varies by your location.  We suggest that tvlistings.zap2it.com may be a helpful resource for finding described shows on PBS in your area.  Look for the "DVS" notation in the show details.

The following list was originally compiled on October 1, 2015, and updated periodically since then.  Some of the programs may no longer be airing, and we are certainly missing many.  Please contribute what you can via the Webmaster link at the bottom of this page.
