Producers can find comprehensive information about submitting to PBS and the resources required to assemble materials for review. As a public service provider and a membership organization, PBS must serve and anticipate the constantly changing needs of member stations and their audiences.  PBS meets these challenges by pursuing programs employing innovative techniques to satisfy viewers' interests in a multitude of subjects including News and Public Affairs, Science & Natural History, Drama & Performing Arts, and Children's Programming.
