The “Sesame Street Stays Up Late!” special, airing over PBS on Dec. 29 at 8 p.m. (ET), will also be made accessible to visually impaired children through Descriptive Video Service.
The hour-long program will have additional narrative for families who have a Second Audio Program switch on their TV or VCR. Through this unique program, DVS adds narrated descriptions of characters and people, movements, costumes, settings and scene changes.
Descriptive Video Service was developed and is provided via PBS by Boston public broadcaster WGBH at no cost to viewers. The service was launched in 1990 and currently adds descriptive narration to 11 PBS series.
