Smoky Hills Public Television produced a documentary titled, “Stories from The Dust Bowl.” Through the use of old photographs, music, film and interviews with those who lived through this time period, Smoky Hills Public Television presents a special program that tells the story of this critical time in history. It is important to capture the recollections and stories from the past to learn of the hardships of those who survived and continued to make a life and home in Kansas and the plains. There are many stories to be told; however many of those will soon be gone.
Visits included Hugoton, Liberal, Great Bend, Hays and Garden City, Kansas and Goodwell, Oklahoma as well as interviews with men and women from across our viewing area. The Wind Erosion Research Unit of USDA’s Agricultural Research Service at Kansas State University has done extensive research on the subject and history consultants from Fort Hays State University, University of Kansas, Barton County Community College and Oklahoma Panhandle State University were interviewed.
“This Program is funded in part by the Kansas Humanities Council, a nonprofit cultural organization promoting understanding of the history, traditions, and ideas that shape our lives and build community.”
