About the Show
A unique series of magazine-style episodes hosted by Bruce Burkhardt, a former environmental reporter for CNN, and a fresh new talent, Caroline Raville. Each episode will link 5 or 6 stories, sometimes in a theme, showing how conservationists, fishermen, hunters and outdoor recreationists are sharing responsibilities for protecting America's natural heritage for future generations. The focus will be on will be on wild and beautiful places you've never heard about, and on passionate people protecting vital American landscapes, waters, and wildlife. There's nothing quite like this on national television; THIS AMERICAN LAND will be a distinctive approach to covering serious national conservation issues. We realize that many stations produce quality programming like this for their local markets, and we think there's a national audience for it in a series like ours. We will showcase stories from participating affiliates, drawing attention to the special natural resources their localities and what people are doing to protect them. Current participants are Oregon Public Broadcasting and Georgia Public Broadcasting. Segments will also be featured from local public broadcasting programs such as Outdoor Oklahoma and Exploring North Carolina. Each episode will also include a segment from the Science Nation series funded by the National Science Foundation.
