Reader Kirsten Johnsen was wondering what in the world was up with this documentary. People want to see it! Sarah Sue Uthoff responded that basically, we have no update, but she suspected that the upcoming PBS pledge drive special might give the distribution a boost.
In fact, she’s on the right track. And there is an update. It just came in over the weekend, and I have not had a chance yet to post it.
The documentary will be available not singly as we’d been expecting, but as part of a package for PBS’s pledge drive special in June. From Dean:
I’m delighted to announce that LHOP: The Legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder will be available through PBS as part of “The Pa’s Fiddle Collection” that supports PA’S FIDDLE: THE MUSIC OF AMERICA.
The Pa’s Fiddle Collection is composed of five items available exclusively on PBS for a $275 pledge to your favorite PBS member station:
- Pa’s Fiddle Concert DVD
- Pa’s Fiddle Concert CD
- Making of Pa’s Fiddle DVD
- Pa’ Fiddle Primer CD
- LHOP: Legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder DVD
So although we cannot obtain it singly, by pledging to PBS, we can obtain it.
