Discovering Nebraska

NET has a new program starting this Friday, August 21st.  It's a special that is a cross between Nebraska Stories and Nebraska Land and Sky.  It's called Discovering Nebraska and is all about unique stories from Nebraska.  The program is 90 minutes long with a series of segments seven to ten minutes in length.  Check your NET schedule as it will premiere at 8:30 CT on Friday.

The segments include a visit to Happy Jack Peak and Chalk Mine at Scotia.  Another segment features the Wessels Living History Farm near York.  The Winnebago Tribe and their heritage will be featured in another segment.  You will get to see the Ho-Chunk Village in Winnebago.

Viewers will also see the 3,000 seat venue Five Rocks Amphitheater in Gering.  It provides a variety of musical groups and open-air entertainment in the spring and summer months.  Do you remember going to a drive-in theater?  Take a trip with NET to the tK-Starlite Drive-In and Theater at Neligh.  It is one of only two remaining in the state of Nebraska.

Stop by the Pony Express Station in Gothenburg to discover what it was like along the Oregon Trail.  Then travel on to Robidoux Pass and Robidoux Trading Post near Gering.

Discovering Nebraska will repeat at 11:30 pm CT on Friday August 21st and at 7 pm CT on Monday August 24th on NET.  It will repeat at 1 pm CT on Saturday August 22 on NET World (NET2) and repeats at 7 pm CT, Sunday August 23 on NET Create (NET3).

Thanks to NET for bringing such great programing to Nebraskans.  And for showing us our great state.
