Nebraska Stories on NET 1

Living in Nebraska, I have developed an appreciation for the landscape, the geography, the history and the people who have devoted their energy and lives to make this a great state.

The Nebraska Stories February episode will be one Nebraskans should watch.  It airs on Sunday, February 9th at 9 pm (central time) on NET 1.  It will be repeated on Friday, February 14th at 7 pm (central time); Saturday, February 15th at 9:30 pm (central time); Friday, February 21st at 7:30 pm (central time) and Sunday, February 23rd at 6 pm and 10:30 pm (central time).

This will be a very interesting episode that you won't want to miss.  Two of the featured stories are the Wildcat Hills and The Forgotten War.

The Wildcat Hills are an interesting formation eight miles south of Gering in the Nebraska Panhandle.  A rangeland ecologist will take us on a walk through the hills which loom up from prairie land to form crags and rocks along with trees and other plants.

The Forgotten War will be interesting to anyone whose relatives served in the Korean War.  This episode follows a group of Nebraska Korean War veterans on their visit to the Korean War Memorial in Washington, DC.  This is a great opportunity to experience the war through the eyes and words of those who saw action there.

There are other segments within the episode also including a talk with young Jack Hoffman who made the famous Husker touchdown run in 2013.  There is also a segment of a piano "experiment" conducted in Omaha.

You can watch a preview of the episode on the Nebraska Stories web site for NET.  Make this a night of learning and enjoyment with NET 1.
