As Seen on Public Television - with Jack Perkins
The Maine Coast - so distant from most of America - is in fact where America began. Rugged and raw, it has inspired a nation's creative genius - poets, painters, and ponderers.
And still today it is the coast to which millions of Americans turn for recreation or re-creation. It borders the state of Maine, but this is America's coast.
In this exquisite video, explore its length (3500 miles), see its sights (simply beautiful), share its lives (beautifully simple).
Through seasons and centuries, exult on America's coast.
Narrated by Jack Perkins, with a musical score by John Cooper, Maine: America's Coast is a stunning video and a beautiful gift.
Jack Perkins hosts programs on the A&E Network, contributes television essays to the MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour, and lives, gratefully, on the coast of Maine.
John Cooper, who composes and performs the original score, is a well known jazz performer and music educator, teaching currently at the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor.
