Mondays: Devoted to action and travel, with the British spy drama "MI5" and three documentary shows including "Globe Trekker."

Tuesdays: Focused on science, with the Canadian series "The Nature of Things."

Wednesdays: Drama night, with the British crime shows "Prime Suspect" and "Hustle."

Thursdays: a "grab-bag," the article says, with the station’s public-affairs show "SoCal Connected" and the British series "Doc Martin."

 Fridays: Primarily news programming.

KCET didn’t say what it was scheduling Saturday nights.

The station will continue to air children’s programming on weekday mornings, including two shows from Jim Henson Co., "The Wubulous World of Dr. Seuss" and "Construction Site," the article notes.
