Our Fellow Americans (Series) (1976)

Our Fellow Americans was a CBC series of 8 half-hour profiles of life in the U.S.A. The series marked the bicentennial of the United States, and concentrated on eight different regions of the country. Each show included interviews with colourful, often well-known, characters from the region. So, in Texas, Larry Solway talked with billionaire Bunker Hunt and with the leading citizen of Luckenbach, "Hondo" Crouch; in California, he spoke with writer Ray Bradbury; in the South, he interviewed Georgia governor Lester Maddox; and writer and radio announcer Studs Terkel told him about Chicago. Other programs in the series covered New York, Florida, the Mississippi River, and the Boston and Newport area.
