Up first is The Amish which will premiere on the channel on Sunday May 6th at 8:30pm. The latest entry in PBS’ acclaimed American Experience series, The Amish takes a look at the cloistered community and their way of life; including revealing the pressures on Amish teenagers who are only now discovering the kind of existence enjoyed by others outside the narrow confines of their upbringing. The documentary also includes the first interview with the parents of one of the 10 Amish girls who were murdered by Charles Roberts in 2006.
