1980s TV show.. ERASED from existence

There was a TV show, early 80s, probably on PBS. Short subject, less than 20 minutes, squeezed in between shows. It was all about Emerging Future Tech! Like microcomputers, art in tech, digital stuff. The host was Laurie Anderson. It has FALLEN off the FACE of the EARTH. [more inside]

What was that 1980s TV movie/show with an alien news show?

In the late 1980s, I remember seeing something on television that featured some kids picking up a signal/broadcast from outer space. The broadcast contained an alien news show. It was a standard type of news show with male and female aliens at a news desk with an inset in the top corner. The aliens were sort of heavy-set, not your generic, skinny bug-eyed aliens. I don't think it was intended to be scary but it kind of freaked me out as a 7-year old and it has stuck with me to this day. [more inside]

More Forgotten Children's Entertainment

Late 1980s or very early 1990s made for television science fiction mini-series. All I remember is that it involved some space ships that joined together to form something else, at least a couple of kids, possibly an abandoned/run-down space station or colony, and a mystery to be solved by flying all over the place. Like all such things I probably wouldn't enjoy it now, but would like to watch it again if possible.
