Las Vegas Lynn on PBS?!

Postby moira finnie » October 30th, 2014, 9:01 am

Our pal, Lzcutter of the SSO & TCM Message Boards, has a documentary being shown on the Las Vegas PBS channel this evening. As many of us know, Lynn is a one-woman wonder when it comes to documenting the complex history of that city and compiling oral histories from those who lived it. There's a taste of the show at the link below, but here's hoping that the whole show might be available on the VegasPBS channel soon. Below is a clip of this doc:

Congrats, Lynn!!

I'm going to keep my eyeballs out for this series and I will check my local stations if they carry this documentary. This is great news Moira. And, congratulations to Lynn in doing this.

Thank you so much for the kind words! I truly appreciate it.

Right now, there are no plans that I am aware of for my documentary to be shown on other PBS stations.

However, if you would like to buy a copy of the DVD, I can offer $5.00 off for SSO members on any order- and you still get the free shipping!

Just use the promo code-SSO - when going through the check out process.

Here's the link to our Store page:

You help preserve history with your purchase!

Thanks again!
