    Default Ghost Town TV Program?

    I am a video producer with a keen interest in the history of the American west and ghost towns. I love the history that lies just off the beaten path. And I think it is important to keep those memories alive. I'm new to this group, although I have visited this website for years. I use a Mac, so I am unable to review the ghost town TV section. I wonder how many of you would be interested in a regular television program on a national network that featured ghost town of the west; then and now? If there is interest in a program like this, would you prefer to access it via television? Internet?
    I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
    Thanks.

    Are you kidding? Heck yes! My preference would be TV. I'd love to see some emphasis on both teaching us our own history and on preservation of these sites.

    Interesting concept. There are a number of members here, myself included, who could provide thousands of photos of ghost towns, then and now, if there was a general interest in the subject. Networks are a hard sell and there would have to be a target audience large enough to interest them in carrying a program of this type. Let us know what you come up with.

    I participated in a video - widely available throughout the Death Valley region - called GHOST TOWNS OF DEATH VALLEY, in 2000. Other published authors also participated.

    TV for me, although I don't have cable, satellite nor high speed internet. I do get PBS out of Reno, Nevada.
