Slickly-produced sign-off clip of L.A.'s former Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) affilliate. KCET severed its 40-year relationship with PBS at the end of 2010 due to irreconcilable disputes over financial and programming matters. It now operates as an independent, non-commercial station (KCOE-TV 50 is now the PBS affiliate for southern California). Channel 28's defection from PBS caused a decrease in financial support and necessitated a move to a new location for its studios. For forty-plus years KCET telecast from facilities on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood that had been used in film and TV production since 1912. KCET sold this historic studio to the Church of Scientology in April 2011, and began operations in its current location in Burbank the following year.

The video features a few shots of Los Angeles at night, then a brief montage of KCET-PBS programming clips, and ends with a haunting close-up of the moon being overtaken by some dark-looking clouds.
