Due to phenomenal response to the first airing of "The Sprawling
of America," Detroit Public Television (Channel 56) is
re-broadcasting the documentary series this Saturday,
August 25th, from 8-10 pm.
"The Sprawling of America" is the first documentary series
produced by the Great Lakes Television Consortium (GLTV).
"The Sprawling of America" is a two-part, two-hour series that
examines the devastating social, economic, and environmental
impacts of sprawl on urban and rural communities. Over the
two hours, this series will document how America
grew from cities to suburbs, how that movement changed society,
and how suburban communities are now re-evaluating their quality of life.
