The People's Forest

Thursday, April 9, 08:00 pm on Vermont PBS | Duration: 0:48

THE PEOPLE'S FOREST is one of the greatest environmental comeback stories in American history. In the early 20th century, New Hampshire's White Mountains were ground zero for a vast disaster caused by ruthless logging and the massive forest fires, erosion and flooding that followed. The destruction launched a national battle over the fate of America's forestlands and sparked one of the first grassroots conservation movements. This is the dramatic story of how unlikely allies saved the White Mountains and helped create more than 50 national forests and grasslands in 41 states, totaling 20 million acres of public land. A film by David Huntley of Southfield, Massachusetts.

Root Hog Or Die

Thursday, April 16, 08:00 pm on Vermont PBS | Duration: 0:56

Filmed in 1973 in hill towns across Western Massachusetts and Southern Vermont, this film follows the cycle of the farming year from spring to winter. In its course we visit with an array of elders, who reflect on farming's deep natural patterns, share their family histories and personal memories, and ponder the inevitable forces of technological and social change they have endured. A film by Rawn Fulton of Bernardston, MA.
