It's a 60 minute program airing on Monday, August 11 at 7 pm CT on NET1.
Other air times are: Monday, August 11 at 10 pm CT, and Wednesday, August 13 at 9 pm CT - both on NET1.
I haven't gotten a chance to view the whole thing, but I've seen parts of it. It is so beautiful! Often times we take for granted the place where we live. There's so much to see in Nebraska. We have history here.
A British aerial photography team called Skyworks London joined the NET crew to photograph and video tape Nebraska land. They captured key landmarks, hidden places, nature, history and more.
Skyworks specializes in top-end aerial filming, creating footage and shows for broadcasters all over the world, including National Geographic, PBS and the BBC. NEBRASKA Land & Sky, funded in part by the Nebraska Tourism Commission and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, is a production of NET Television.
What I love best about the film is the aerial view seen throughout. You just can't capture things like that on your own.
Take for instance: Carhenge is shown in the video. It's just briefly, but I saw it. I only got to see it from the ground. It's cool watching them fly over it in the video.

A lot of people I talked to when I lived in Georgia thought Nebraska was nothing, but cows. While it's true we have cows here, there is a lot more to see.

Watching just a part of NEBRASKA Land & Sky makes me want to travel. I love Western Nebraska so much!
I know many of my readers do not live in Nebraska. Viewing the video is a little hard if you don't live here. I also know many of you have shown interest in where I live. I'm going to open this giveaway up to anyone in the US.
