Tom Nicholson, associate professor in the Department of Media Arts, Sciences, and Studies, served as editorial consultant on the upcoming The Rise and Fall of Penn Station, part of the American Experience series on PBS. The show is scheduled to air on Tuesday, February 18 at 9 p.m. on WCNY.
The Rise and Fall of Penn Station examines the engineering challenge of building tunnels under the Hudson and East Rivers. Once completed riders would disembark in one of the greatest architectural achievements of its time, Pennsylvania Station.
Nicholson has worked on previous PBS broadcasts, including two other American Experience films, Goldrush and Silicon Valley, and an episode of Fabric of the Cosmos, a four-part series for Nova, which was nominated for a News and Documentary Emmy.
