Farming History in Alaska

During the Great Depression of the 1930's, the United States government sent 202 families from the upper Midwest to colonize the Matanuska Valley in Alaska. Hear their stories on WHERE THE RIVER MATANUSKA FLOWS.

Where the River Matanuska Flows is a four-part series that will be seen over the next four weeks.

Wednesdays at 8:00 pm

Can these ever be seen on Hulu or are they available on DVD? We dont' have even local TV and would love to see some of your programs.

Dear Ms. Hogate,
Thank you for asking! Yes, "Where the River Matanuska Flows" and "Alaska Far Away" are both available on DVD. You can order them directly from us (the producers, Juster Hill Productions) at or from our website (although our new low prices aren't on the website yet). Also, I'll be showing both films daily and selling DVDs at the Alaska State Fair Aug. 25-Sept 5. If you live near Palmer, you can also buy them from Fireside Books, the Palmer Visitors Center, the ARRC office, and the Colony House Museum. In Anchorage, they are available at the Anchorage Museum. I hope this helps, and thank you so much for your interest.
