WTIU is turning the big 5-0, and The INbox is here to celebrate it throughout 2019.

Leading up to the station's anniversary on March 3, we'll be publishing stories looking back on WTIU's history and its impact as a PBS station. We'll remember past shows, station events and even hear from a few WTIU alumni.

You can check out our first story of the year here, where we look back at a very chilly debut for WTIU's live news broadcasting. Then, from The Electric Company to the original Poldark, we're looking back at seven PBS series you might have forgotten about.

Take a tour of news at WTIU since the Blizzard of 1978 with our retrospective, and then read Barrie Zimmerman's oral history of the pipe organ in the television studio.

And don't forget to use #WTIU50 across social media to share your memories of the station.
