Advance screening of One Square Mile's Nacogdoches episode available online

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches will taking center stage during an upcoming next week's episode of a new PBS series called One Square Mile: Texas. The first episode of the show, which focuses on El Paso, airs this week on Texas PBS stations.

Starting tonight and continuing through next Wednesday, the show's sponsors are hosting an online screening of the Nacogdoches episode here and here.

According to an e-mail from filmmaker Carl Crum, who has been producing the nine-part series with his wife Betsy, they have been working on the series for the past 18 months.

"For the One Square Mile: Texas series, the husband and wife filmmakers approached nine distinct square miles across the Lone Star State, including Nacogdoches," the e-mail message stated. "The purpose of the series is to explore what life actually is like for the people living and working in these square miles and to shed light on what it actually means to be Texan in contemporary American culture."

In addition to Nacogdoches and El Paso, the other Texas square miles that will be featured in the series include Silverton, Dallas, Midland, Port Isabel, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio.

"There are all these different stories to tell in Texas and there is over a quarter million square miles in the state so each one has a different story," Carl Crum said in a previous East Texas News story.
