While summer is known for many wonderful things – pool parties, baseball games, camping trips – one thing we typically don’t associate with summer is new and robust TV schedules. It makes sense, of course, as many of us are enjoying time outdoors. But when we come in for the evening – or on the nights when we just want to relax at home – we want to see something engaging. Luckily, OPT has some great programs coming up this month.
As always, A Capitol Fourth promises an all-star salute in celebration of our country’s birthday. Broadcast live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol, this patriotic extravaganza incorporates 20 different cameras – positioned all around Washington D.C. – to ensure that we’re front and center for the greatest display of fireworks in the nation.
And be sure to join us on July 14 at 8pm, for the debut of OPT’s newest local documentary - Empowerment: The Electrification of the Ozarks. The program takes a look at the time period when electricity was introduced to the region and started becoming widely available. Through a variety of voices and viewpoints, we’ll hear the history and unique first-person memories of this dramatic change of lifestyle in the Ozarks.
This locally-produced documentary is the latest in a long line of local storytelling from OPT that embodies our commitment to document, present and preserve the remarkable history of the Ozarks. Thanks for making that mission – and all the work we do at OPT – possible through your support. And enjoy the show!
