PBS has put out a series, Appalachia: A History of Mountains and People, which features American chestnut in the final segment. This segment, Power and Place, is airing this weekend, though from what I found, at some inopportune times. Thought members might be interested. Seems odd that it's not airing in prime time (most PBS stations are), so you may want to double check the local schedules.
