Floyd Collins and Dr. C.C. Howard

(#615) from Kentucky Life Program 615 (2000)

James Gray, grandson of Dr. C.C. Howard, tells the story of how Howard was called to the southcentral Kentucky site where cave explorer Floyd Collins was trapped underground, only to find that he could do nothing but watch a 1925 version of a media circus unfold. Former Gov. Ned Breathitt also recalls other memories from Howard’s long career as a country doctor.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
