PBS – Tracing the Tracks
Scope: To produce a 30-minute documentary on how the Chattanooga Choo Choo transformed a small valley city into an international icon.
Approach: Creating a show about an imaginary train has its challenges. But the legend of the Choo Choo is so vivid to Chattanooga residents that it was an easy tale to tell.
With the help of Glenn Miller’s famous song, historic photographs and resident yarn spinning, we traced the tracks of history, nostalgia and a timeless legend.
Aired on PBS stations throughout Tennessee
