ACTV Programs Win Statewide Historical Awards

ACTV shared in some “historic” awards at the North Carolina Society of Historians’ annual banquet, held Saturday October 22 in Mooresville, North Carolina:

Alleghany Memories

Mildred Torney, Margaret Crouse and Pauline Jolly shot in front of the blue-screen backdrop in the ACTV studio.

The Alleghany Historical – Genealogical Society won a Paul Green Multimedia Award for the first episode of its new television show, Alleghany Memories, that featured Mildred Torney and Pauline Jolly being interviewed by Margaret Crouse.

This first installment of the series, shot by Charlie Scott in the new ACTV studio at the Blue Ridge Business Development Center in Sparta, airs Thursdays at 6 p.m.

From the NCSH judges’ collective comments: “This is one of the best oral history DVDs we have ever had the privilege to judge! It’s the kind of, “find a comfy seat and bring a cup of coffee-type” of recording, set in a relaxed atmosphere. It felt like we were sitting around with friends, just visiting with three exceptional women who have done so much for Alleghany County, NC … and that is an understatement!”

Alleghany Lives

Brad Jenkins won a Paul Green Multimedia Award for his play Alleghany Lives. Charlie Scott shot the play during the county’s Sesquicentennial in 2009 and the station has aired it several times since.

Judges’ comments: “After the play was over, even though Mr. Jenkins was not present, nor was any cast member, they would have seen the same type of standing ovation that they received at the end of the play recorded on this DVD! It is truly a piece of work, ART, to be proud of.”

Mountain Topics

A Paul Green Multimedia award was given to Clark Hunter for a series of programs on the Blue Ridge Parkway for his show, Mountain Topics.

Clark, a member of the ACTV Board of Directors and a career broadcast professional, has developed one of the first original programs for the station.

NCSH judges: “The host always seemed interested in what the speaker had to say. He asked intelligent, open minded questions, and made some excellent comments. It was easy to see that he had done his homework with regard to the subject matter at hand. His voice holds one’s attention and sounds very interesting and inviting.”

Alleghany County projects won over 10% of all awards given in 2011 by NCSH. Congratulations to each of the winners and thank you and the NC Society of Historians for your contributions to North Carolina History.

Thanks, also, for allowing Alleghany Community Television to share in the production of these historic, historical, award-winning entries!
