This week the Regional Educational Technology Network (RETN) will broadcast "The Great Flood of 1927: A Commemoration," which was sponsored by the Center for Research on Vermont with the National Weather Service on November 3, 2002, the seventy-fifth anniversary of this watershed event. The event will air on Adelphia cable television in the Greater Burlington area.

The interdisciplinary panel of speakers include Samuel B. Hand, Emeritus, History, University of Vermont; Gregory Hanson, National Weather Service; Paul Sisson, National Weather Service; Richard Sweterlitsch, Oral Historian, University of Vermont; and Arthur Woolf, Economics, University of Vermont.

The event drew an overflow crowd, and a number of witnesses to the flood spoke about their experiences during the program.

The program runs about two hours and will air as follows:

        Wednesday, July 23, 2003, at 11 a.m., again at 8 p.m., and again at midnight
        Saturday, July 26, at 8 a.m.
        Sunday, July 27, at 9 p.m.

Note: The schedule is the same for both RETN North (Burlington, Essex, Essex Junction, Williston, and Winooski) and RETN South (Charlotte, Ferrisburgh, Hinesburg, Shelburne, and Vergennes).
