Has anyone been watching this series on PBS? Apparently they are rerunning it; we missed the first run and we missed the first two of the reruns, but the one this week, the third, was really good and I look forward to seeing the last. I was hoping Jean Ritchie would be in one of them, but if so I've missed her. Anyway, it seems to be really good. Here's a LINK. (And, yes, I did search for a thread on it and did not find one.:-)

Thanks,

kat

Thanks for the heads up. I Don't have a TV. I'll ask my daughter about it.

I hope it is not another poor ignorant hillbillies expose.

To me it is interesting that "Appalachia" seems to be slowly ceasing to be a pejorative term in some contexts.

However, I just heard the big growing region in California called "the new Appalachia."

The more things change....

I got to watch some of it. I really enjoyed what I did get to see. I had my tivo set to record all of them but the tivo crashed and I missed some and lost what I had recorded before I got to see.

Russ, one of the things that was neat was it explained how that hillbilly stereotype came about and how ignorant it was. Hope you get to see them. You, too, jayto.
