Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

Historical records of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway will soon be revealed in an episode of the popular Empire/KVCR PBS series “Uncovered in the Archives.” Series host Brad Pomerance travels to Palm Springs to sift through the tramway’s archives to learn how this world-renowned Southern California attraction came to be. The 30-minute episode premiered on Sept. 29, 2019 at 9:30 p.m. and will also air Oct. 4 and Oct. 9.
According to Pomerance, “The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway holds so much history in Palm Springs that to have access to the archives of this iconic attraction was truly a treat for me.”
“Uncovered in the Archives” travels throughout greater Inland California to reveal some of the region’s most extraordinary historical events and places — known and unknown, remembered and forgotten — all told through the hidden treasures that are discovered in the destinations visited.
The series is produced for Empire KVCR/PBS by Big Mist Productions and the Endeavor Production Company, with C.J. Eastman serving as executive producer and Glenn Grant as creative director.
