ETV Producers to Profile South Carolinians
ETV has entered into an exciting partnership with the South Carolina Hall of Fame in Myrtle Beach to produce “mini-documentaries” about each of its inductees—contemporary and past citizens who have made outstanding contributions to South Carolina’s heritage, history, and progress.
Many of these documentaries will be expanded into full-length Carolina Stories programs. For example, each South Carolina astronaut who is in the Hall of Fame—Charles Duke, Ron McNair, and Charles Bolden—will have a separate documentary produced about him, but their three stories also will be told in a special Carolina Stories program “South Carolinians in Space” (working title) which will air in early 2012. Other Carolina Stories offerings about Hall of Fame inductees will include “South Carolinians in the Civil War” (Mary Chestnut, Wade Hampton, Robert Smalls), “South Carolina Musicians” (William Walker, Dizzy Gillespie, Carlisle Floyd), “South Carolina Businessmen” (Elliott White Springs, Roger Milliken, Hugh McColl), “Fritz Hollings and Strom Thurmond: South Carolina Statesmen on the National Stage,” and many more over the next five years.
