Found it!

Its called "Into the Future", and will air at 9:00 Central time on PPTV
(Prairie Public TV), Jan 13. I'm not sure if this is a national station
or not, but their primary market area is North/South Dakota and

The show runs 1hr, and is summarized as follows:

"Questioning how the human record, stored digitally, will survive into
the future."

Happy viewing...
