Hurricane Matthew Coverage

As any North Carolinian knows, the Tar Heel State was greatly affected by Hurricane Matthew. Many residents of our state are still dealing with the after effects and will be doing so for some time.

UNC-TV has tried to convey the full scope of this problem through updates and specials on our various broadcast services. Last night we aired our second Hurricane Matthew Special on both UNC-TV and our North Carolina Channel. If you missed it, you can view the special and see related videos at our web site:

Doc Martin Alert!

Okay, not Doc Martin per se – but his portrayer, Martin Clunes, takes on a new role beginning Sunday as Arthur & George debuts on Masterpiece Mystery!

Based on the best-selling novel by Julian Barnes, Arthur & George chronicles the story of Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as he uses detective methods made famous by his fictional sleuth to divine the truth behind a case of injustice.

So if you are a fan of Doc Martin, Sherlock Homes, Martin Clunes or Mystery! in general, tune in Sunday night at 8 on UNC-TV and catch Arthur & George.  Then stay tuned for Sherlock: The Empty Hearse at 9pm. {The program repeats Monday at 2am and noon on UNC-MX.)
