Although modesty almost forbids me to do this–almost–please remember that the Sunflower Journeys episode that airs tonight at 8:00 p.m. on KTWU in Topeka is all about World War I.  See a segment about the “Captured” exhibit at the Kansas Museum of History!  See a segment about World War I posters!  See Doran Cart, Senior Curator of the National World War I Museum and Memorial, discuss a new exhibit at their museum!

Sunflower Journeys also airs on KCPT in Kansas City, KPTS in Wichita, and Smoky Hills Public Television in western Kansas.  Check your local listings.  It should also be available after tonight on the KTWU website,
