March 1st, 2011 by NC BTS

Bill LandrySince 1984, Bill Landry, writer and producer of the Heartland Series has filmed stories of natural and cultural significance. The series began with the 50th anniversary of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Video segments are aired nightly on WBIR-TV’s NBC affiliate in Knoxville, Tennessee. They are also made available for sale to the public in DVD format. The very first Heartland Series segment was called “An Unlikely Explorer” and was about the travels of William Bartram. To celebrate the Park’s 75th anniversary, Landry and his film crew returned to the Nantahala National Forest in December 07 and July 08 and filmed another segment on the NCBT. The new segment aired in July.
