BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (Aug. 25, 2016) — A WKU PBS 30-minute documentary, Mammoth Cave: A Place Called Home, will be nationally distributed in September by the National Educational Telecommunications Association in September.
“We believe that the unique stories of our region are important as they relate to national conversations on topics like eminent domain,” said David Brinkley, director of Public Broadcasting. “We also appreciate the partnership with our good friends at Mammoth Cave and the National Park Service and appreciate the importance of this anniversary for them.”
Mammoth Cave: A Place Called Home is described by WKU PBS as “the poignant story of people moved from their homes and communities to make way for the creation of Mammoth Cave National Park. This moving tale comes to life with the cooperation of community partners, Mammoth Cave National Park and with the support of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, the Mammoth Cave National Park Association, the Friends of Mammoth Cave and by supporting members of WKU PBS.”
“This documentary was a year in the making, but it was generations in the telling, and we appreciate all of the stories that we were able to share with the creation of this documentary,” said Cheryl Beckley, producer of Mammoth Cave: A Place Called Home.
WKU PBS is the public television service of WKU. Broadcasting since 1989, the station is staffed by award-winning professional broadcasters, and also provides employment and internship opportunities for WKU students, who receive real-world experience to further their careers post-graduation.
