The material we uncover documents history and our nation’s heritage. We’ve found great stories, conducted extensive interviews and discovered amazing artifacts which were never before revealed, and would otherwise have remained hidden. The television show documents historically significant interviews and events in a fast paced, uniquely entertaining and dynamic video style.
One of the most frequently heard comments from viewers is “nobody’s doing a show like this”, or “I didn’t know that”. In just the first few shows, we uncovered stories like who nicknamed the American Flag “Old Glory” which prompted the community to get involved. The Tennessee State Museum then arranged to bring the actual “Old Glory Flag” from the Smithsonian and put it on display in Nashville, Tennessee.
The first series of shows feature stories from Tennessee and Kentucky. You can also find treasure maps to go along with some of the stories at www.TennesseeTreasures.com . The treasure maps are collectible and allow you as a viewer to experience each treasure first hand.
