Our Town: Tour Ten Marathon

Our Town: Tour TenOur Town: Tour Ten

From Glocester to Middletown, Our Town represents the first 10 communities of Rhode Island's 31 towns. We still have a way to go, but oh, what a journey!

On Wednesday, November 27, we present three films on the hour starting at 8 p.m. On Thanksgiving, we present the the next seven films on the hour starting at 4 p.m. We hope you can join us (or set your DVR) to visit all of the towns and their villages, or pick and choose your favorites.

Our Town shares the charm and character of Rhode Island's towns and villages - in particular, untold or uncelebrated stories that capture the essence of life in the town. Building community by enhancing connections and relationships between Rhode Island PBS and town residents, the stories are told by resident-storytellers and videographers, who choose the stories they want to tell about their town. The role of Rhode Island PBS is to offer technical advice and then stitch together the stories into a one-hour film.

Part fund-raiser, part community builder, part historical and cultural documentary, and part “day-in-the-life” video scrapbook, Our Town shares with viewers the local legends, historical happenings, and backyard secrets of a town and its villages. Enjoy!
