SENTIMENTAL REFLECTIONS SERIES 7 SPRING EDITION - DVD
Sentimental Reflections travels the country to produce the video series that celebrates America's heritage in story, scenery and song. The 45-minute DVD is released each Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter.
These videos are about America and Americans, as we are and as we were. They offer unique glimpses of Americana.
Each edition of Sentimental Reflections includes six regular segments: Cover Story, Scenic America, On A Musical Note, Off the Beaten Path, Time Capsule & a Seasonal Feature.
"We travel the country to create each edition," said James P. Delaney, Executive Producer of Sentimental Reflections. "We always strive for a lively variety of features to continually present entertaining and informative programs for our viewers."
The Sentimental Reflections series is an annual production: four DVDs are published each year, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter, and each is dated with the year, to give each a unique designation. So,for example, there is a Summer 2010 edition and a Winter 2011 Edition. The year of the edition has nothing to do with the contents - these videos are timeless. A selection from Autumn 2009 can be as timely and relevant as the most recent production. We have chosen to eliminate the year from our descriptions to avoid this confusion. Make your choices from the Sentimental Reflections series based on content, not on date or season.
It was quite a scene in St. Joseph, Missouri for the 150th anniversary of the Pony Express, still revered despite being in service for less than 2 years in the early 1860s. We also look back on the heyday of drive-in movies and enjoy a "string-along" weekend in Wisconsin where musicians bring their stringed instruments for a musical getaway. And we remember some long ago circus days in Baraboo, Wisconsin.
COVER STORYPony Express: There was quite a celebration for the Sesquicentennial of The Pony Express. While this unique mail delivery system from St. Joseph, Missouri to the West Coast lasted only 18 months, it left an indelible mark on America's memory.

OFF THE BEATEN PATHBaraboo, Wisconsin: Baraboo, Wisconsin is far more than the Circus World Museum, but this lovely town is still defined in part as the onetime home of the famous Ringling brothers.
TIME CAPSULEDrive-In Theater Days: The Holiday Auto Theatre in Hamilton, Ohio is part of a revival of drive-in theaters around the nation. This segment recalls the heyday of drive-ins, which began in New Jersey in 1933.
