  • South Carolina Wildlfe TV Play all

    South Carolina Wildlife TV is an idea that had floated around for several years. There were many potential stories associated with SCDNR projects and outreach activities, and ultimately a plan bobbed to the surface in August of 2003.

    We had a clean slate from which to work. We decided the best approach would be something like a video version of South Carolina Wildlife magazine. So meetings were held, amused chuckles were traded and a format was chosen.

    We would build a show around two main stories, one field trip segment, and a short wrap-up piece that featured natural sounds and settings. Most importantly, we would hit the road and river and forest and anywhere else we could find South Carolina's special places. At last count, our tally includes nearly 200 hundred shooting locations, 100+ guests, dozens of drive-thru cheeseburgers, four hosts and one upside-down truck (don't ask).
