What We Do

Since 1958, NMPBS has been a leader in public television state-wide, providing important PBS and local programming as well as innovative services connecting the people of New Mexico. NMPBS provides all New Mexicans with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions; we convene community dialogue, and engage audiences to share their stories.

Local Productions

NMPBS produces compelling local documentaries on topics of importance to our community. From the arts to state history, social issues to the sciences, we harness the natural curiosity and talent of independent producers to create visually dynamic programs of substance designed to educate and entertain. Past programs have included: The Majesty of Music and Math, Balloon Fiesta, The Sandias, Surviving Columbus (winner of the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award), Route 66: The Neon Road, Invisible Children, and the Painting trilogy: Painting Albuquerque, Painting Santa Fe and Painting Taos.

Kids in a Planetarium


At NMPBS, we’re proud to serve the diverse communities throughout our beautiful state.  To that end, we are continually partnering with community groups, filmmakers, schools and other non-profit organizations to help improve our community's quality of life.
