A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

On Thursday at at 19.30 is the 52nd episode in the series. It may have run over two or more seasons, Wikipedia suggests there are 318 in total.

Ross painted over 30000 canvases in his time. The official website appears to be a pale imitation of his creative genius by a paint supplier, with reference to the business clouded by subscription to various magazine articles and Netflix.

Yup so do I - and the missus religiously records the current showings so she can watch them at the end of a stressful day :D

I was quite surprised to find that many of the kids at the school I work in know of Bob Ross and his work & enjoy the programmes :-respekt
