"Viewers will learn about the Heritage Wall, the impact of IBM leaving the community, DePauw University, the national road, the fire that burned most of the town in 1874 and the John Dillinger bank robbery in 1933."

The newspaper points out, "The program had its premiere on Dec. 2 and was repeated Dec. 4 and 6. Due to such positive audience response, the public television station has added a fourth showing of the program in one of its viewer choice slots this weekend." 

The PBS affiliate's program includes interviews with DePauw President Robert G. Bottoms; Mary pbs_logo.jpgP. Kertzman, University Professor of physics and astronomy; John Baughman, professor emeritus of history; Wes Wilson, University archivist; and Nick Mourouzis, who guided DePauw's football program for 23 years before retiring in 2003.

DVD copies of the program are available through WTIU.
