The Crafty Chandlers

working at the forge restoring antique buggies

Harley Chandler and his brothers, who hail from the Boone County hamlet of Petersburg, love working with their hands—especially if it’s to make things that connect them to a bygone era. This segment features the hand-crafted, historically accurate buggies they create using tools they make themselves.

High-Water Art

Paducah’s floodwall mural

The view of a floodwall isn’t something most cities would crow about in their tourist brochures or recommend to their visitors. But Paducah—consummate river city that it is—has taken bland concrete and made it a real attraction for visitors and natives alike. In this segment, we visit with artist Robert Dafford as he creates a historical mural on the floodwall.

Asbury to Atlanta

behind the scenes at the Olympics

Next, travel to the Centennial Olympic Games, Atlanta ’96, with some students from Wilmore’s Asbury College. As part of a program designed to give students on-the-job experience, they spent two weeks working side-by-side with broadcast professionals at Atlanta Olympic Broadcasting to help provide television coverage of the games.

All Dolled Up

cartoon of doll first lady dolls

Our final segment visits the State Capitol in Frankfort, where the Kentucky Federation of Women’s Clubs maintains a doll display representing Kentucky’s first ladies. Each doll is outfitted as that first lady would have dressed, with many wearing replicas of first ladies’ inaugural ball gowns. The collection also contains a miniature of Kentucky’s only female governor (so far!), Martha Layne Collins.
