EcoFocus Selection from the Peabody Awards Archive: Paradise Saved

 |  19:00:00  |  Free

For the first time at EcoFocus, we present an environmental selection from the George F. Peabody Awards Collection housed at the University of Georgia Special Collections Library. This year’s selection, Paradise Saved, is a Peabody award-winning documentary from 1982 produced by WAGA-TV Atlanta. Paradise Saved examines the complex issues related to increasing allowed attendance at Cumberland Island National Seashore. Audiences will be treated to a unique opportunity to experience what was then seen as a quality of visual beauty not often seen on television, and have a chance to see how issues of natural heritage and natural resource preservation were viewed and documented in 1982.

Screening to be followed by a discussion with Dr. Gary Green, associate professor of Natural Resources, Recreation and Tourism in UGA's Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and Jennifer Smith, filmmaker and associate professor of telecommunications in UGA's Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.

This event is a UGA Blue Card event.
