Pemberville Mental Culture Club
PEMBERVILLE - President Sherrie Sheffler welcomed 13 members of Mental Culture Club to her home March 11.  
Sheffler presided over the business meeting.  Plans were made for the May spring dinner.  For roll call each member named her favorite Public Broadcasting program.
Sheffler reviewed the book "Making Masterpiece" by Rebecca Eaton, producer of PBS's Masterpiece Theatre. The history begins in 1969 when National Educational Television stepped out of its box of educational and scientific programing and aired the British Broadcasting production of "The Forsyte Saga."
When NET became PBS, the Boston station WGBH contracted the BBC for 39 hours of British literary productions for its new program of Masterpiece Threatre.  Alistair Cooke was host.  "Upstairs Downstairs," introduced in 1974, was Masterpiece's first big hit.
With the program running over 40 years, Eaton's constant challenges are selecting new British dramas to broadcast, funding, keeping the fan base, and attracting a younger audience.  Part of her strategy divided Masterpiece into three segments: Masterpiece Classic, Masterpiece Mystery! and Masterpiece Contemporary.
Jane Kohlenberg and Sheffler served green desserts to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
