Eyes on the Prize Streams for First Time

April 5, 2021


THIRTEEN is proud to stream the first season of Eyes on the Prize, one of the most iconic programs in PBS history. The series, available to stream for the first time since its 1987 premiere broadcast, has six episodes that tells the definitive story of the civil rights era. It is told from the point of view of the ordinary men and women whose extraordinary actions launched a movement that changed the fabric of American life.

“When first broadcast in 1987, Eyes on the Prize was acclaimed as the defining series on race in America. Today, it still resonates and is relevant to an entirely new generation of those seeking answers about how we arrived at this moment in our country,” said Chris Hastings, executive producer for WORLD Channel. “As we mark the anniversary of the death of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and at a time when racism continues to be at the forefront of the national dialogue, we are proud to share this series.”

WLIW World, a sibling channel of THIRTEEN and part of The WNET Group is airing the series this month (see how to watch WLIW World broadcast). WLIW World begins broadcasting Sundays at 9 p.m. on April 4, 2021 (see schedule).

World offers a viewer guide of this era of the civil rights movement.
