Arts & Entertainment Network


Another retro gem shared by Retrontario reminded me of the origins of the A&E Network.

When I first saw A&E, it was called the Arts & Entertainment Network and it was very PBS-ish.  Lots of BBC stuff and upper crust viewing, as I recall.  Here's an Arts & Entertainment Network promo to give you a taste of what it once was.

It's hard to believe that evolved (devolved?) into the A&E of today.  Now it's all Gene Simmons: Family Jewels and Dog the Bounty Hunter and such.

At least it supplied me with my nightly Law & Order fix during my uni days.
