America's Last Little Italy: The Hill Set for Limited Streaming on PBS



If you missed the big television debut of America's Last Little Italy: The Hill the other day on PBS, you’re in luck. Not only is the film replaying on PBS multiple times in the upcoming week, it’s also streams online during those showings for free.

And in addition to streaming it at or on the PBS Video app, you can also catch replays of the documentary on Sunday, December 6 at 4 p.m. and also on Tuesday, December 8 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, December 12 at 3:30 p.m. on Channel 9 (PBS).

Here’s how we described the film:

“Focusing on the history and heritage of St. Louis’ Hill neighborhood, the documentary explores the tales of the families of Italian immigrants who made their way to this small corner of south city and built their own community while pursuing the American Dream.

The film explores the food, family, religion and history of the people who continue to thrive in this close-knit neighborhood today.”
So stream it now, set your DVR to record it or call up your grandpa to let him know when to tune in to channel 9 so you can both watch it live together. Intergenerational bonding, it’s the Italian way.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported when the documentary would be available for streaming. We regret the error.
