Our Town Tunkhannock Documentary Premieres October 4 on WVIA TV
(2010-09-28)
(wvia) - "Our Town Tunkhannock", the second edition of WVIA's "Our Town" documentary series premieres Monday, October 4 at 7 p.m. on WVIA TV.

There are stories in the Endless Mountains of Wyoming County...endless stories. Tales of Native American lore, an artistic hub boasting regional talent with international recognition-- and people, of all ages and all walks of life with one common thread: a love for their hometown.

Residents from Tunkhannock, PA volunteered their time to become videographers and storytellers for "Our Town: Tunkhannock". The residents narrowed down which landmarks, events and local stories the documentary would explore. Each subject was assigned to a volunteer to videotape and participants were then interviewed about why they chose to become involved.

Hear their stories, and see through their eyes why Tunkhannock is such a special place to call "home", as WVIA presents "Our Town Tunkhannock," produced in partnership with Gem 104.

As northeastern Pennsylvania's and the central Susquehanna valley's public television station serving a very large geographic area, the "Our Town" project was initiated in an effort to involve the communities and their residents with WVIA. The "Our Town" documentary series is intended to treat viewers to the many personalities, perspectives, and possibilities that local towns have to offer.

WVIA TV will rebroadcast "Our Town: Tunkhannock" Monday, Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. immediately following its premiere.
