Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories Previous Broadcasts

Beaverbrook (Episode #801H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 29, 2012 -- 6:00 PM

The story of Camp Beaverbook, the much-loved summer camp that operated in Northern California from 1961-1985. This often humorous film offers a poignant reminder of a more innocent time. Archival footage and former campers' life-changing stories belie the camp's demise and the decline of the summer camp industry, in general.

Ghost Mountain Experiment (Episode #505H)

KQED 9: Sun, Jul 8, 2012 -- 6:00 PM

Obsessed with the dream of living a simple back-to-nature lifestyle, eccentric artist, environmentalist, and author Marshal South flees civilization with his wife Tanya. For 17 years, they raise a family on a remote, waterless mountaintop, but isolation and betrayal take their toll and ultimately destroy a desert paradise and a marriage.
