Description
This episode asks Does everyone welcome a changing South? The program notes that many Southerners resent the movement toward industrialization, fearing it will destroy their conception of tradition in the Old South. The program begins by airing arguments for and against industrialization and the economic incentives of creating new industry. One interviewee notes that plantations should be torn down for industrialization if that means job creation, which goes against the belief some people have who think these homes preserve Southern character. The narrator tours one of these plantations. The episode then discusses how the Old South can be used as a form of heritage tourism, which would become the setting for a booming economic business without industrialization that wrecks it landscape. The narrator discusses the benefits the South brings to the tourist industry. Dr. Walter B. Jones is interviewed as he tours the Blue Ridge Mountains into the rest of the South and discusses the attempts by businesses and infrastructure to support a tourist economy.
A series of documentaries depicting the increasing importance of the South in the economic development of the United States. Narrated by Walt Whitaker, written and produced by Leroy Bannerman, with Dr. Walter B. Jones as senior consultant.
