Tavis Smiley goes behind the scenes with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

In the first of four primetime specials that examine some of the country's defining moments, noted broadcaster Tavis Smiley accompanies Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on a diplomatic mission abroad, to meetings on Capitol Hill and within the State Department itself, to give the American public a candid and incisive view of the inner workings of U.S. diplomacy and international relations. Tavis Smiley Reports "One on One with Hillary Clinton" airs Wednesday, January 27 at 8:00 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 1011 and 11). Encore presentations Sunday, February 31 at 10a.m., 4 p.m., and 11p.m. on PBS World (cable 524/DT21.2).

Tavis Smiley and PBS will expand their relationship in 2010 with the January premiere of Tavis Smiley Reports, a series of four hour -long primetime specials that will air throughout 2010. 

The first Tavis Smiley Reports focuses on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she completes her first year as America's chief diplomat and looks ahead to the challenges of the next three years. Smiley has been granted exceptional access to Secretary Clinton and will accompany her on diplomatic missions abroad, to meetings on Capitol Hill and within the State Department itself to give the American public a candid and incisive view of the inner workings of U.S. diplomacy and international relations.

"Tavis Smiley Reports will take a look at the country's most important people and recent events, from perspectives that are rarely portrayed," says host Tavis Smiley. "I will be talking to people and traveling to the places that have transformed us as a nation, often in ways we don't even realize."

Throughout the year, PBS invites viewers to explore the vast contributions of African Americans. In honor and celebration of Black History Month, February 2010, PBS presents new and encore programs, beginning in January and continuing through February.
