Blue Ridge Parkway documentary airs

Written by 

A new documentary about the Blue Ridge Parkway will air at 10 p.m. on Nov. 4 on UNC-TV.

Documentary filmmaker Bruce Bowers and Bowers Media Group, Inc. produced the documentary, which is called, “The Blue Ridge Parkway: A Long and Winding Road.”

Bowers’ historical documentary, say its producers, is the first to reveal a secret deal that determined the route of the Parkway.

The hour-long documentary also takes a fascinating look at the people along the parkway corridor and addresses how the scenic road affected their lives and cultures. The documentary contains a significant segment on the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians,  including interviews with Amanda Swimmer, Jerry Wolfe, Faren Sanders Crews and Freeman Owle. The opening song is by Bo Taylor, and Eddie Bushyhead performs rivercane flute music throughout. Eastern Band Cherokee tribal consultant was Faren Sanders Crews.
