#105 "Buffalo Creek: An Act of God/Buffalo Creek Revisited" [TV-G]
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.

Pioneers of TelevisionHigh Definition
#204 "Local Kids' TV" [TV-G]
In the early years of television, local kids' programs shaped the childhoods of millions of American children. Performers honed their skills performing on live TV with small budgets and little support. One early talent, Stan Freberg, got off the bus in the middle of Hollywood, became a cartoon voice talent, and created Time for Beany. Freberg's story is told along with the story of legendary Muppets creator Jim Henson, animator Bob Clampett, actor Chuck McCann, performer Pat McMahon, and Nancy Claster, who developed the Baltimore kids' series Romper Room - the first franchised show in television history.
