MARKS 75th YEAR OF GRAND
TETON NATIONAL PARK
TRACKS ITS TUMULTUOUS EXPANSION
KUED-Public Television presents a documentary that explores the
struggle behind the expansion of federally protected land in Teton
THE JACKSON HOLE STORY takes a balanced look at efforts to promote
– and actions to stifle – the enlarged Grand Teton National
Park known today. At the same time, the program shows how the battle
over public and private land shaped Jackson Hole into what it is
today. The program was produced by KUED’s Joe Prokop and narrated
by Babe Humphrey of the Bar J Wranglers band.
The one-hour documentary combines footage of breathtaking scenery
with archival photos and old 8-mm film to detail the evolution of
Jackson Hole over the course of the 20th century. From early homesteading
life up through today’s booming tourism, THE JACKSON HOLE STORY
examines the tenuous balance between conservation and development,
between a place and its people. MORE
