About Think Tank
Think Tank with Ben Wattenberg is a half-hour weekly discussion show focusing on deeper trends, conditions, and ideas behind the week's headlines. Each week, host Ben Wattenberg is joined by panelists uniquely qualified to discuss topics such as public policy, politics, arts and entertainment, culture, science and technology, and medicine. Think Tank has been broadcast nationally on PBS each week since 1994.
In an effort to provide more than the usual "talking head" fare of journalists sparring with politicians, Think Tank concentrates on a single topic in order to bring viewers something rare on television: Perspective. Viewers hear from historians, anthropologists, political scientists, demographers, economists, and social philosophers, as well as authorities from many other disciplines.
Think Tank is made possible by generous support from the Smith Richardson Foundation, the Bernard and Irene Schwartz Foundation, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, the John M. Olin Foundation, the Donner Canadian Foundation and Pfizer Inc.
Think Tank is a production of BJW, Inc. in association with New River Media, a Washington-based television production and communications company.
