Public television will highlight some of the historical and geographic landmarks of Newport Beach and Costa Mesa as part of a new week-long series on Orange County.
The episodes from the series “California’s Gold” and “Road Trip with Huell Howser,” will air on KOCE-TV Orange County through Sunday this week. The series includes an episode that will feature the boats and yachts of Newport Harbor Wednesday and an episode that highlights the landmarks of Costa Mesa and San Juan Capistrano that will air Friday. Viewers should check local listings for exact times.
“California’s Gold” is one of the longest running series about California ever produced, according to KOCE-TV Orange County. The success and popularity of the show has helped to launch six additional series about life in California, “Visiting with Huell Howser,” “Road Trip with Huell Howser,” “California’s Golden Parks,” “California’s Green,” “California’s Water” and the newest series, “Downtown.” Huell Howser’s shows can be viewed at various times on California PBS stations statewide and in Oregon, Nevada and Tennessee.
