A Cemetery Special


This celebration of cemeteries across America takes an unusual and informative look at graves, monuments, family plots, sculpture and the way cemeteries interconnect with many aspects of modern American culture. Traveling from Key West to central Alaska, the program features examples of burial grounds as special sites where history and art are preserved, where flowers and trees can be important attractions, where people make pilgrimages to the final resting places of the famous and the familial, and where old and new traditions often combine in fascinating ways. Rick Sebak (A PROGRAM ABOUT UNUSUAL BUILDINGS, A HOT DOG PROGRAM, A FLEA MARKET DOCUMENTARY and SANDWICHES THAT YOU WILL LIKE) narrates.
