GNAT to air local history series

MANCHESTER - The GNAT production team in conjunction with local historian, Dick Smith and GNAT's Board of Directors President Scoop Maginniss present a new local history show - "History Where it Happened" - framing seemingly ordinary buildings and places in a historical context.

"Each episode educates the viewer. You will learn how these historical events and people impacted our community and Vermont," said Smith. "History Where It Happened" explores the Marble Rail Road and how it forever changed the Vermont marble industry, Fort Ticonderoga and it's history with the Green Mountain Boys, the fascinating stories at the Dellwood Cemetery and much more.

"During our strategic planning process in 2013 we surveyed the community about what types of programs they would like to see on our channels. Local history was at the top of the list. We are looking forward to hearing viewers reactions to the program," said GNAT's Executive Director, Tammie Reilly.

"History Where It Happened" airs on GNAT's Channel 15 (Channel 8 in Stratton) on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m., Friday at 7 p.m., Sunday at 4 p.m.; and on Channel 8 (Weston/Londonderry) on Monday 9:30 a.m./ p.m., Wednesday at 10 a.m./p.m., and Saturday at 6:30 a.m./p.m. Those interested may also catch the show online at
