At 7:00 p.m., LPB will air “Atchafalaya: America’s Largest River Basin Swamp,” a remastered 16-mm movie that Lockwood produced in the ‘70s. This movie caught the attention of National Geographic and helped to turn the tide of future development of the basin.
At 8:00 p.m., LPB presents “Atchafalaya Swamp Revisited,” a co-production of The Bill Rodman Production Shoppe and LPB. The program details Lockwood’s return to America's largest swamp wilderness, thirty years after his acclaimed Atchafalaya book and National Geographic article. Surprisingly, Lockwood found that the swamp's most interesting and threatened species had vanished.
Tune in to hear Lockwood’s account of his longtime love affair with this important Louisiana landmark.
