When will be Lost LA next episode air date? Is Lost LA renewed or cancelled? Where to countdown Lost LA air dates? Is Lost LA worth watching?

Much of Los Angeles' past is lost to history -- but we can rediscover it in the region's archives. This new series, a co-production of KCETLink and the USC Libraries, in collaboration with "L.A. as Subject," brings Southern California history to life by marrying archival materials with innovative forms of documentary storytelling. Hosted by L.A. public historian Nathan Masters of USC Libraries, this original series of three episodes showcases nine emerging filmmakers. From rotoscoping to cinema verité, the range of the filmmakers' techniques mirrors the diversity of their backgrounds. But a common thread runs through their films: each brings the primary sources of Los Angeles history to the screen in surprising new ways. What previously hidden stories will the next generation of filmmakers unearth in the collections of "L.A. As Subject" members? Tune in to find out. Each episode of Lost L.A. rediscovers a forgotten city that preceded the arrival of Anglo settlers and shows how it transformed so quickly into a sprawling, culturally diverse metropolis.

Lost LA Air Dates

S03E03 - Desert Fantasy Air Date: 24 October 2018 00:30 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

California's deserts have sparked the imaginations of millions of people around the world. From the famously alien landscape of Joshua Tree to the wide expanses of seemingly empty land, the desert has been seen as a place of reinvention, a blank slate to create your dream. This episode explores how those dreams have led to the man-made natural disaster that created the Salton Sea; to the effort to preserve Joshua Tree National Park; and how commercial interests and real estate developers created desert utopias like Palm Springs.

S03E04 - Ghost Towns Air Date: 31 October 2018 00:30 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Some California dreams succeeded, creating megalopolis regions in the state's north and south. Other dreams failed, leaving nothing but ruins. This episode explores three California ghost towns: Bodie, a Mono County gold mining settlement that was preserved in time; Llano Del Rio, a socialist utopian community in the Mojave Desert; and Zzyzx, a former health spa on the way to Las Vegas.

S03E05 - Venice Air Date: 07 November 2018 01:30 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

From its origins as a themed seaside resort to its international fame as a countercultural hub, Venice Beach boasts a rich, multilayered history. This episode explores Abbot Kinney's original Venice of America development; the community of Beat poets who called Venice home; and how the commercial renaissance along Abbot Kinney Boulevard has impacted the historically African-American neighborhood of Oakwood.

S03E06 - Fantasyland Air Date: 28 November 2018 01:30 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Los Angeles has long been the place where you can imagine something — any time period, any locale, ordinary or exotic, real or fantasy — and build it. It's a tradition that dates to the 1910s and 1920s, when early filmmakers built elaborately themed outdoor sets that often remained standing for months or years, inviting visitors. It found its fullest expression in nearby Anaheim, where Walt Disney's Imagineers created the intricately themed, immersive experience that is Disneyland.
