WETA UK introduces Washington audiences to the best in British television when the channel launches June 2 with Britain’s #1 comedy — Outnumbered — and the forerunner of America’s modern forensic television dramas — Waking the Dead. They are among the series that will be making their Washington, D.C., premiere on WETA UK, the newest television service from WETA Television — the flagship public broadcasting station in the nation’s capital and home to WETA TV 26, WETA Kids and WETA HD.
Inspired by the film Latino Americans, we decided to seek out a local perspective on the Latino experience in our community with our weta.org Digital Extras. Luis Araya immigrated to Arlington, Virginia from Bolivia in 1966, when very few Latinos lived in the county. He reflects on the changes he has seen over the years and the influence of Latinos in Arlington today.
