||WRAL Documentary Focuses on Intra-coastal Waterway
WRAL-TV will premiere its latest documentary on Saturday, April 13, 2002, at 7:30pm. The half-hour “Ribbon of Dreams” takes a look at people who live along the Intra-coastal Waterway and at the history of the waterway itself. “Ribbon of Dreams” also looks at the waterway’s importance to the state.
“There are marvelous stories from the people who live there… people who will tell you they can’t imagine living anywhere else,” said WRAL-TV Anchor and the documentary’s host David Crabtree.
A few of the people featured in “Ribbon of Dreams” include 87-year-old William Bowser, a third generation African American who was a member of the Coast Guard at the Pea Island Station along the Outer Banks. Also featured is 9-year-old Georgie Pecheptsov, a prodigy whose artwork sells for $32,000 per painting in Wrightsville Beach.
