An Everlasting Joy

Here's a DVR alert for "The Everlasting Stream," a KET production which airs nationwide on PBS today (10 p.m. Channel 48 and on KET2 on Insight Channel 23). Record this one and savor it.

The one-hour documentary, which premiered on KET a year ago, tells the story of the unlikely bonding of a white big-city journalist named Walt Harrington going hunting with four African-Americans in Glasgow -- Bobby, Louis, Carl and his father-in-law Alex.

For 20 years, the former Washington Post reporter has left his expensive suits and White House dinners behind to learn about friendship and other life lessons while hunting rabbits each Thanksgiving with the four Glasgow guys. It's a great hour of television – pretty pictures, wonderful natural sound, great blues soundtrack – told in a conversational style. Harrington adapted the script from his book, "The Everlasting Stream: A True Story of Rabbits, Guns, Friendship and Family."

The project dates back to 2004, when Bill Goodman -- KET "One to One" host and a Glasgow native – read the book and suggested Harrington do a KET adaptation. It was shot in 2005.

Although KET shoots three long-form documentaries at year, this is the first KET film on PBS since 2000, and it certainly deserves the national attention. But the pace is slower than commercial prime-time TV, and you have to listen closely, so that's why I suggest you record the show and savor it – instead of having November sweeps programs or the 10 p.m. news competing with it for your attention tonight. Enjoy.
