- On February 26, 1972, a coal-waste dam owned by the Pittston Company collapsed at the head of a crowded hollow in southern West Virginia. The disaster left 125 dead and 4,000 homeless. Interviews with survivors, representatives of union and citizen's groups, and officials of the Pittston Company are juxtaposed with actual footage of the flood. Filmed ten years after the Flood, Buffalo Creek Revisited looks at the second disaster, in which the survivors' efforts to rebuild the communities are thwarted by government insensitivity and a century-old pattern of corporate control of the region's land and resources.

- The Appalachians
- #101 [TV-G]
- When the first European settlers arrive in the Allegheny, Cumberland, and Blue Ridge mountains in the 17th century, they trade and intermarry with the Shawnee, Choctaw, Creek, and Cherokee who have lived there for centuries. But by the mid-18th century, the swelling pioneer population leads to decades of combat on the Appalachian frontier that eventually forces the natives out. As the Scotch-Irish and other immigrants settle in, the isolation of the mountains helps preserve the cultural traditions they have brought with them. The men of Appalachia fight bravely in the American Revolution, but then rail at taxes and regulations imposed by the new American government. Evangelical revivals sweep the region in the 18th and early 19th centuries, and traditional music mingles with the rhythms used by African slaves to form a glorious new gospel music.

- The Appalachians
- #102 [TV-G]
- In the 1830s, the growing nation sets its sights on land still owned by Indians, and President Andrew Jackson orders the removal of the Cherokee to Oklahoma. Slavery and other social and economic differences widen the gap between the North and South, and the Appalachian region is caught in between, with many families divided between the Union and the Confederacy. The violence and chaos leave scars on mountain life for years to come. After the Civil War, railroads are built, forests are cut, and outside owners buy up the land. A conflict between two timbering families, the Hatfields and the McCoys, becomes a legendary "blood feud," and outsiders create the damaging stereotype of a stupid, violent hillbilly. Timbering and coal mining bring jobs, but the workers find their lives controlled by the companies. The United Mine Workers' union organizing attempts are resisted by the owners, often with violence, and resentments explode in a series of devastating strikes known as the "great coal wars."

- The Appalachians
- #103 [TV-G]
- As the 20th century begins, the phonograph and the radio expose the mountain people to new influences and take mountain music across America. But times are hard, and Appalachia falls into an economic depression even before the rest of the country. President Roosevelt's New Deal brings electricity, WPA and CCC jobs, and new infrastructure, and FDR becomes a hero in Appalachia. Then World War II begins taking many young people away from the mountains, and postwar mechanization replaces coal miners and sends more people to Northern cities in search of jobs. For those who try to stay home, it becomes harder to hold onto land as state and federal governments claim property for dams and family farmsteads are flooded. The 1960s War on Poverty again sends federal aid into Appalachia, but television and magazines show painful images of hunger and poverty, reinforcing the stereotype of the poor hillbilly.
