Washing Away: Losing Louisiana - $25.00

On the one-year anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastating much of the Louisiana coastline and the New Orleans and Lake Charles areas, this new LPB documentary looks at stories of six Louisianans and how the storms affected the coastline, their land and their livelihoods. The characters share their stories and their knowledge of the larger impacts of coastal land loss on the environment, wildlife, economics, industry, culture and community.
The participants include New Orleans chef Leah Chase, the owner of the famous Dooky Chase Restaurant; Errol Domingue, a third-generation sugar cane, rice, cattle and crawfish farmer from Erath; Preston Doré, a shrimper from Delcambre whose seafood restaurant, bar and distribution business were destroyed by Rita; Marlon Horton, a 26-year-old New Orleans East resident displaced to Houston who videotaped his harrowing experiences during and following Katrina including the flooding of his home, his helicopter rescue, and evacuation to the causeway bridge and then the Astrodome, Port Fouchon port director Ted Falgout, and Kerry St. Pe', a marine biologist and Director of the Barataria-Terrebone National Estuary, a 4.2 million acre area currently experiencing the world's fastest rate of land loss. web

Washing Away: After the Storms - $25.00

Five years after hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Louisiana's recovery is eclipsed by the largest environmental disaster in American history. In this documentary, LPB catches up with the six survivors of WASHING AWAY: LOSING LOUISIANA, as they fight to keep their land, livelihoods, and way of life from Washing Away. Their journey through setbacks, subsequent storms and new threats reveal a common thread shared by many of their two million coastal neighbors - determination, perseverance and resilience in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.

Forever LSU - $25.00

LSU is an institution rich in history, having seen many landmark moments in its 150 years of operation, as well as paving the way for many other historical moments in Louisiana and worldwide.

As part of LSU's sesquicentennial celebration of the founding of the university, Louisiana Public Broadcasting and LSU have joined forces to create an hour-long documentary on the rich history of the university.

The colorful story of LSU starts in 1860 in Pineville when the State Seminary of Learning was founded as a small military academy whose first superintendent was William Tecumseh Sherman, later infamous for the burning of Atlanta during the Civil War.

The documentary also cites major events like the enrollment of the first female student in 1904 and the first black student in 1953 but it was not until the 1960s that the campus was truly integrated with Kerry Pourciau's election as Student Government Association President in 1972.

These are just some of the momentous events in LSU's history featured in the documentary. It also features interviews with famous alumni and scholars.

Treasures of LSU - $25.00

A number can be found on display in gallery exhibits. While others buried deep within restricted archives rarely see the light of day.

A few are even hidden in plain sight. But they all have stories to tell about their times, their origins and their value - intrinsic, scholarly or artistic.

Based on the book "Treasures of LSU," edited by Dr. Laura F. Lindsay and published by LSU Press, this high definition, LPB production takes you on an exclusive expedition filled with remarkable treasures, sharp turns and even a few twists.

Join us on the hunt for the Treasures of LSU.
