    Bourbon and KY: Must watch on KET tonight...

    Bourbon and Kentucky: A History Distilled
    A look at the origins and growth of the bourbon business in Kentucky. Visits to several distilleries explore how and why bourbon was first distilled, how it is manufactured, and why it became so identified with Kentucky. Produced by historian Kent Masterson Brown with support from the KET Fund for Independent Production.

    I only got to see about half of it at 9PM EST, but what I saw was great. It comes on again at 12AM EST. It also comes on a few more times in the next couple of weeks. I am going to record it on my media center pc in standard definition. I don't have the ability to record HD right now. If anyone can record this in HD, please do so. I will attempt to encode this and make it available on DVD for those who are interested.

    The KET Fund for Independent Production was established in 1991, for the purpose of funding independent productions on Kentucky subjects in anticipation of the bicentennial of Kentucky statehood in 1992. One of the first productions it funded was my documentary, "Made and Bottled in Kentucky."

    I look forward to seeing this new effort and hope Brown has as much success with his as I have had with mine.

    Well, I'm sure hoping that the people involved or the Fund for Independent Production are getting a cut here, as I found it for sale on DVD here

    The Fund provides seed money, not enough for the whole production, and doesn't take an ownership stake, just non-exclusive broadcast rights.

    Shaggy,

    Thanks for the heads up! I just ordered it. It's just $20 plus shipping. Also have Chuck Cowdery's DVD on order via Amazon. (Yo, Chuck, according to Amazon there's only one now left in stock).

    Now I just have to wait on the U.S.P.S. . . . .

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Amazon deliberately keeps its inventories low and there are, in fact, more on the way. They have a sophisticated algorithm that predicts their inventory needs very accurately. They also order frequently, up to once a week. I expect to get an order for more DVDs Sunday or Monday.

    The book and DVD also are always available at my web site.

    Guys I went ahead and purchased this dvd. My media center pc kept messing up and I was unable to get a good recording. I think it is worth the $20.

    Shaggy, where abouts did you go to order it? I'd be very interested in doing so as I doubt this will make it to Australian cable TV.
