One of my favorite TV programs is Nebraska Stories, which airs on NET. I watch and DVR the show. As a writer, it’s a great way to study the craft of storytelling. As a viewer, it’s a quality production. As a Nebraskan, it’s a MUST SEE that features our state’s culture, people, history, and places!
That’s why I am so excited about the newest NET documentary, Nebraska’s Capitol Masterpiece, which airs:
- Monday, August 5 at 7 PM
- Friday, August 9 at 7 PM
- Sunday, August 11 at 7 PM
A few notes about the production:
Discover the masterpiece of Nebraska’s Capitol through artwork, interviews, archival film and photos, and letters from the structure’s design team. You’ll hear stories from Barbara Day, who witnessed the raising of the Sower statue in 1930, as well as Gloria Witherspoon, a Capitol tour leader for more than two decades.
Make sure to add Nebraska’s Capitol Masterpiece to next week’s schedule! It’s a fantastic program about Nebraska history.
To celebrate the premiere of the Nebraska’s Capitol Masterpiece, I will be giving away a DVD of the program, along with a copy of “Restoring a Landmark.” This book documents the 14-year effort to preserve and restore the exterior of the Nebraska State Capitol. The project team of the owner, architects, consultants, contractors and craftsmen reflect on their role in the reconstruction work. Photographic images and architectural drawings highlight the original construction of the Capitol and capture the extensive work done to restore and preserve this great landmark for many generations to come. The book serves as both a record of the restoration process and a visual commentary on the level of stewardship that will insure the future preservation of this icon.
To enter the giveaway, comment on this blog post or on my Facebook post regarding this program! Good luck!
