3 p.m.BeeGee
BeeGee--a little truck-- is impressed by the big machines that work so hard at the construction site. But when he goes to visit them, they stop working! A lesson in how sometimes the seemingly smallest and most insignificant is the MOST significant of all. Works well in NYC where there’s construction equipment around almost all the time. Presented by Jonathan Ellers. For ages 3 and older.
